You’ve stuffed yourself with turkey and are officially in holiday mode. So now it’s time for your annual family photo. As you scout out venues, book a photog, and align everyone’s busy sched, there’s one very crucial detail you don’t want to leave out — the matching outfits, of course! Coordinating looks that allow each family member’s dynamic personality to shine through can be legit cute, and not corny. Whether you’re recreating a Hallmark-worthy winter wonderland scene or simply hoping to capture a more traditional portrait, keep scrolling for 11 #winning ways to slay this year’s seasonal photo.
