The best boy's outfits for Christmas are definitely going to be outfits that are flexible and comfortable with a dash of style. Finding non-itchy and easy to clean outfits for active boys is a must. However, there are options for very formal boys outfits too. Here are a few ideas for the best boys outfits for Christmas, with different options for ranges in ages.
One great option is dressing your boy in a simple sweater and slack combination. An argyle sweater design on the front of the sweater is formal enough for a boy without being too hideous or embarrassing, like forcing them into a snowman or christmas tree sweater from grandma. Finding a cotton constructed sweater will get rid of the itchy qualities that you will find in most wool based sweaters. The addition of a turtleneck or undershirt will make for easy layering if your boy needs to cool off or get warm fast. Dapperlads.com offers the perfect example of a cotton argyle sweater with black cord pants. Everything is machine washable for easy cleaning. The entire set, sweater, turtleneck and cord pants are $16.95.
A vest on a boy is a great grown up touch that will leave him looking and feeling like an sharp guy. Pair a vest with a white collared shirt and a nice pair of black, gray or khaki slacks for a polished, formal look. What's better is that with the use of an undershirt, he can be playing as quickly as taking off his vest and collared shirt. A great vest can be found at infashionkids.com. It is a boys burgundy velvet vest that also comes with a tie. It costs $37.99 and comes in sizes 12 month, 18 month and 6. Size 6 costs an additional 3 dollars.
Shortall with White Shirt
A great choice for toddler boys is a shortall with a white shirt. The shortall from Best Dressed Child comes in a plaid pattern that features red, blue, black and green colors. Snaps are built in to the bottom for easy diaper changing. Made out of 100% cotton makes this outfit easy to clean and a comfortable, breathable option for your toddler.
5 Piece Kids Suit Set
If formal wear is what you're looking for, a 5 piece kids suit set will leave him looking sharper than many of the adult guests. You can find suits that come complete with jackets, vests, slacks, white collared shirt and a tie. Most 5 piece kids suits you can find will be one color, meaning that the slacks, vest and tie will feature the same color palate. This 5 piece kids suit from Vangogh comes in two colors: navy blue and olive green. The jacket has 3 faux pockets on the front and a removable faux handkerchief. Shoulder pads will round out the shape of the jacket. A matching vest, tie, button up shirt and elastic waisted pants with 2 pockets complete this 5 piece set. It's priced at $80 and is a specially ordered piece that will take 2-3 weeks for delivery.
