Cozy Holiday Outfit Formulas For the Whole Family
You heard it here first: after an undeniably chaotic year, the definitive holiday vibes for 2021 are cozy and chill. This year, we think the holidays should be all about keeping things low-key at home with family — board-game battles, home-cooked meals, and movie nights spent snuggled up on the couch. No matter what your plans look like, you can still prioritize comfort when it comes to getting dressed.
We're ready to put the days of tight dresses and stuffy button-ups behind us, and we bet your kids are, too. Look no further than Gap for holiday outfits for the whole family that go all-in on coziness. We put together a few examples below, complete with styling tips. And don't worry, we made sure these looks are still totally Instagram-worthy.
Turtleneck Sweater and Velvet Pants
The Gap Softest Turtleneck Sweater ($70) will be an instant contender for holiday MVP. Warm and soft, while still dressy enough to wear for a nice dinner, you won't want to take this off — and you won't have to! Style it with the Gap Recycled High Rise Velvet Wide Leg Pants ($80) in Purple Eggplant. This look works best with glitzy heels or laidback loafers.
Plaid Hoodie and Corduroys
For our menswear look, we rely on cozy textures to add festive flair to a casual outfit. The statement piece is the green-and-black plaid Gap Microfleece Hoodie ($19-$21, originally $50-$55). This choice speaks for itself. Plaid is a classic holiday print, but the more subtle green colorway can be worn all season. We pair it with the Gap Corduroy Slim Straight Pants With Washwell ($70). Bring in a light color and top off the 'fit with the Gap Organic Cotton Waffle-Knit Beanie ($25).
Cable-Knit Sweater and Sparkly Leggings
We've said it before and we'll say it again: pink is our absolute favorite unofficial holiday color. The blush tone of the Gap Kids Cable-Knit Crewneck Sweater ($40) is oh so pretty. Match it with the Gap Kids Sparkle Leggings in Stretch Jersey ($25) for a touch of holiday glam. This comfy-cute outfit will look fab with any style of shoe, so your girl can accessorize however she pleases. Personally, we're partial to the skater-chic Gap Kids High-Top Sneakers ($50).
Grey Jeans and a Crewneck Sweater
Denim in a faded grey wash, like the Gap Kids Skinny Jeans With Washwell ($40), put a sophisticated spin on blue jeans without diminishing the comfort. Paired with the Gap Kids Solid Crewneck Sweater ($35), this is an outfit they won't mind putting on. Maybe, if you're lucky, you'll even convince them to pose for a few family photos.
