There's no better time than the holidays to really go all out and try a trendy look. But what's the point in investing in a new outfit if you'll never wear it again? Luckily, there are plenty of trends that will last well into 2017.

Lilliana Vazquez, TODAY Style Squad member and founder of TheLVGuide.com, has you covered with festive, fun and trendy outfit ideas for the entire family.

Holiday dinner

Make your Sunday best look stellar, not stuffy. Mixed prints for mom are the perfect way to help her look pulled together. Add some pointed-toe flats and it's the perfect combination of comfort and style — a necessity when you're mom to active little ones!

Family-friendly New Year's Eve party

Metallics are a mainstay for New Year's Eve, but the key to keeping it fresh is to mix metals! Combine pieces in gold, silver, copper and even rose gold to give a modern twist. It's also a great way to get the whole family on board without looking too matchy-matchy.

Choose luxe fabrics like faux fur or foiled metallics to make mom's look really stand out. Get dad in on the theme in a subtle way with a small accent, like a gold lapel pin. For the kids, choose pieces they'll love to wear even after New Year's — like a sparkly jacket or fun pair of sneakers!

Festive holiday card

When it comes to taking a great photo for your holiday card, it can be tricky to coordinate without putting the entire family in the same outdated outfits. Instead, choose one bold color for everyone to wear in their own unique way. It can be a statement piece for some and the accent in a larger pattern for others.
