Who doesn’t love getting their kids dressed up and especially when it’s a holiday. Seeing all the work that you’ve done, finding just the right outfit, shoes, and accessories is a lot of work. But seeing our scrubbed and coiffed kids shining in their holiday finest is worth all of the difficulties.
And when you’ve planned accordingly, the tangible fruits of your labor can make any parent swell with pride. When the kids look so beautiful and neat (for once!) and are so excited about the events to come, we are filled with pleasure!
One of my daughters has a designer’s eye when it comes to dressing her children. She derives tremendous pleasure from dressing her children to the tee, especially for those special occasions. They wear uniforms during the week, so for any holiday, you can be sure that her kids will be wearing that extra special outfit. Here are picks from some of her favorite designers and I hope that these ideas might make some of your holiday shopping easier.
Designer Holiday Styles
Tuchinda is a designer brand who has created beautiful A-line skirts and dresses, well known for being romantic and feminine.
