What To Wear For Holiday Photos

Hey everyone, I hope you all had a nice weekend. I can’t believe we’re already in November. The holidays are officially upon us and you know what that means…holiday photos for holiday cards! Don’t worry though because I’ve got plenty of affordable outfit ideas for you from Nordstrom. As for the boys, the Nordstrom Men’s Shop has you covered there too. We of course all know how to dress ourselves, but coordinating outfits with your significant is a whole other ball game and I’m not even going to attempt to throw kids into the equation. I don’t know how mom’s do it!

Fortunately, when it comes to holidays dresses and cute skirts or tops with jeans, Nordstrom has endless options. And what’s even better is that they also carry men’s and children’s clothing too so you can find all of your outfits in one place. The Nordstrom Men’s Shop is super easy to navigate and has plenty of men’s shirts and accessories at affordable prices. That’s what I’ve been going to for Blake’s outfits this season. I just send him a few links from each category to choose from and he picks out what he wants before I place our whole order together.

What to wear for holiday photos:

1) If you don’t even know where to begin with your outfit, pick a theme or color scheme that you know you’ll both look good in and that will also go well with your shoot location. Then go to Nordstrom online and just start putting all of your favorites in your cart. Then narrow it down to the outfits you know you’ll actually wear and order them all to try on because Nordstrom offers free and super easy returns. So you might as well try all of your options.

2) Look good and feel good! Choose an outfit that you feel confident in and that looks good from all angles so that you don’t limit yourself when it comes to photo shoot poses. You’ll want your outfit to flatter you from all angles when it comes to wearing it around town anyway.

3) Pick your outfit first! Things usually run more smoothly if you choose your outfit first because it’s easier to build his outfit when we know what else we’re working with. Just be sure to choose colors and accessories for him that will complement your outfit.

4) The most important thing about his outfit is to make sure everything fits. If his clothes are too big, the the whole outfit will look sloppy and if anything is too tight on him, he’ll just feel uncomfortable the whole time. Trust me, you don’t want your guy to feel uncomfortable during a photo shoot when he’d rather be doing something else than taking Christmas photos on Saturday.
