From sparkles to velvet, these cute holiday party outfits are kid-approved

Shopping for holiday gifts is stressful enough, but then add trying to get the kids ready for a photo op or festive party? And it's enough to make your head spin.

It's a good thing that Abby Larson of Style Me Pretty is here to help! She's tackled the task of finding trendy outfits that the kids will feel comfortable in and love to wear. Now that's a combo worth celebrating.

Velvet

Besides being one of the biggest fashion trends of the season, velvet is also soft and cozy. Who wouldn't want to wear something so plush and luxe?

Just a touch of the winter-y fabric can up the ante on any outfit, explained Larson. Whether it's Christmas Eve dinner or just a fun gift exchange with friends, this is one trend that the kids can get behind.

Metallics

This is the perfect time of year to add a little bling and shimmer! And adding a dose of metallic is the perfect way to do it.

Whether it's a sparkly dress or just a touch of shine on shoes, kids are sure to give this trend two thumbs up. Plus, anything metallic is especially great for New Year's Eve parties — even if they can't stay awake until midnight.
