How to Dress Your Dog (and the Rest of the Fam) for Festively Stylish Christmas...

After living in leggings and oversized tees for most of this year, we could all use an excuse to get decked out for the holidays. A DIY Christmas card photo shoot with your fur fam is the perfect opportunity to ditch the lockdown leisurewear and try something new and fab on for size—like coordinated Christmas family photo outfits that’ll push your seasonal snapshot over the top.

To get you started, we’ve gathered six Christmas family photo outfit themes that are oh-so stylish. Then we found the cutest dog Christmas outfits that fit these festive themes, and even included some styling tips for you to ensure everyone in the photo (furry and otherwise) looks their best this year.

Shine On

Sequins, sparkles, metallics—oh my! All that glitters may not be gold, but it’s certainly fit for seasonal celebrations. For a Christmas card photo that feels glamourous and always on-trend, look to apparel that features these fancy elements. In your case, that may mean a glittery skirt or metallic pants and a simple, solid top. For a camera-ready look for your dog, try the frilly  Frisco Red Sequin Dress  with its organza-like skirt and ruby red sequined top. If you and your bougie best friend prefer just a touch of metallic, see the  Frisco Cable Knit Sweater Dress . And for some jewel-like sparkle, let them shine in the  Frisco Faux Crystal and Pearl Sweater Dress.

Whoever said Christmas family photo outfits had to be stiff and uncomfortable? Pose in your PJs for an ultra-cozy feel. (Any excuse to cuddle up to your pets and loved ones, right?) To avoid the pic from looking too casual, it’s best to keep everyone’s PJs coordinated. You don’t have to find sets that perfectly match though—just stick to the same color palette. If your pet is rocking the Frisco Holiday Fair Isle Fleece PJs, choose a human-sized set in red or white. To match the Frisco Holiday Foliage Fleece PJs, human pajamas in red, white, green or teal will do. And to coordinate with the too-cute Frisco Holiday Cookies Fleece PJs, look for people PJs in mint, white or red.

Now, all of you are ready for a walk in a winter wonderland—or least a quick photo in one!

Dreaming of a white Christmas? You will be with a Christmas card photo like this! For a clean and crisp aesthetic, have everyone don their best winter whites. Try white sweaters over jeans to keep things simple, or get fancy in creamy dresses and button-downs. As for your pets, you can make them the center of attention (when aren’t they, TBH?) by choosing dog Christmas outfits that incorporate a bit of color on a white base. Take your pick: We love the smart, neutral striping on the Wagatude Cable Knit Striped Dog Sweater, while the White Fa La La Pom Pom Dog Christmas Sweater’s pop of festive color is so fun. And for some subtle pizzazz, check out the darling dots of gold on the Frisco Plush Fur Hoodie.

Buffalo Brood

Buffalo Brood

Come wintertime, buffalo plaid is pretty much a wardrobe staple for everyone in the family. You can go causal with cozy flannels over denim, or, for a more polished look, try having a plaid collar peek out from a cable knit sweater, or tuck a flannel shirt into a voluminous midi skirt. To have pets join the buffalo brood, check out the handknit Chilly Dog Buffalo Plaid Sweater and its chunky plaid pattern. For an outdoor shoot, the Frisco Quilted Water Resistant Reversible Jacket is warm and insulated. And how gosh darn adorable is that moose on the Frisco Moose Sweater?

 Classic (and Cozy!) Knits

Classic (and Cozy!) Knits

For a Christmas card photo that will never go out of style, opt for a collection of cozy knits for the entire clan. You probably have a drawerful of them already, but when it comes time for your photo shoot, try to coordinate either color palettes or weaves to keep things from looking too busy. A selection of cable knits, for example, will have everyone looking perfectly preppy. Or, you can choose snuggly sweaters for yourselves in similar hues to these sweet knits for pets: The Frisco Cable Knitted Sweater comes in five colors (who doesn’t love options?), while the Chilly Dog Spencer Stripped Sweater is sustainably sourced and couldn’t be more dapper. And the Frisco Deluxe Marled Fair Isle Reindeer Sweater? Well, that dasher-and-dancer print is just so jolly!
