Preparing for the Holiday Season: Your Children's Party Outfits Sorted

The holiday season is nearly upon us, which only means one thing… it’s time to get dressed up. Even the youngest partygoers want to dress to impress around holiday time, and with our elegant selection of children’s’ party wear, it's easy to help them look their festive best. From velvet to seasonal tartan, let us help you find the perfect party outfit for your little one!

Now November is here the festive invites will start flooding in, whether you can meet for parties or online zoom calls, there’s still plenty of time to prepare for the holiday season and get your kids’ party outfits sorted without too much hassle.


Velvet is a classic material that gives rich texture and easily makes every piece feel luxurious and chic. Red and royal green velvet numbers will be a common sight this holiday season, but here at Pepa & Co we prefer hues that aren’t so connected to Christmas. Not only does this give a more classic look, but it also means your Little Pepa can make full use of the outfit, whether it’s for Thanksgiving at the end of the month or for NYE celebrations.

Another trend we absolutely love is lace - it’s now the turn of delicate renaissance lace frills and detailing. Our Blue Velvet Dress with White Lace Detailing is the perfect dress for every little girl this holiday season! This beautiful style is made from blue velvet with elegant detailing including white lace around the neck and cuffs. It’s a super stylish design!

Tartan is another classic print that goes hand in hand with the festive season and is a quintessentially British pattern we always try to incorporate into our autumn winter collections. From subtle greens to bold reds – we have all the tartan you need to finish 2020 in style.

If it’s something more classic you’re after, for your little girl go for our show-stopping Red Tartan Dress which features beautiful velvet sash that ties into a bow at the back. And if you’d like something to wear beyond the holiday season, go for our Traditional Green Checked Long-Sleeved Dress features elegant white frill neck and cuff detailing.

If you’d like something more subtle, pastels are the perfect choice - a colour option that isn’t just for the warmer seasons! Timeless in design, our favourite styles include our Pink Jacquard Special Occasion Dress. This classic style ensures your little one’s new piece can stand the test of time and could even be the perfect heritage piece to pass down from generation to generation. 


Little boys love to run around and play at parties, so make sure you choose clothes that are comfortable for when they want to let off steam! Depending on the dress code, you can go for formal shirts with smart accessories – such as trouser braces – or more casual outfits, like a classic jumper with chinos.

As children’s clothes go, in our opinion, dungarees are possibly one of the cutest styles that you can put your children in! They are a timeless design that will never go out of style making the perfect outfit for your little one. Focusing on comfort, our Classic Burgundy Tartan Dungarees are the perfect choice for the children that can’t sit still during the holiday season. 

Similarly, a classic smart shirt is a little boy’s wardrobe essential all year long, but even more so during the party season ahead. Timeless in design and easy to style – a classic shirt has endless styling options meaning it can be worn over and over again during the festive period.

If you fancy a two-in-one outfit, our sets for baby boys are perfect for all occasions and events the holiday season will throw at you! Pairing smart handsmocked shirts with delicate bloomers and shorts, we stock a range of elegant sets all made from 100% cotton - making them soft and comfortable. If you want something seasonal, then our Green Tartan Shirt & Short Set is ideal - with matching dress available for their older sister too. 


Even the littlest of Christmas angels can get into the party spirit! Whether you’re taking them to a nursery Christmas party or to visit family on Christmas day, getting a Christmas outfit for your baby will bring a smile to everyone’s face. Just be sure to keep it comfortable and take a change of clothes or pyjamas if you’re planning to stay somewhere for a while – that way you won’t have a little Grinch on your hands!

Our favourite festive style is our All-in-One with Red Handsmocking – this pima cotton essential is super-soft and perfect for sensitive skin. Made to keep your little one cosy, it’s the ideal Christmas day outfit for any little pepa.
