As the holidays approach so do all the activities for the kiddos that they need to look nice for. Whether you’re looking for clothes for a Christmas card photo, a school program or a church program, I’ve found all sorts of options for you.
But, I also know that when it comes to fancy duds, my kids aren’t going to wear them a huge amount. I don’t want to spend a fortune, yet I also want them to look nice.
Of all the places I’ve bought children’s clothes over the last decade, my favorite these last couple of years has hands-down been Walmart. While shopping in the store is fine, Walmart’s website is my usual go-to since I can more easily find clothing sizes I need and not have to leave my house.
With a 10-year-old daughter who is tall for her age, I have struggled to find age appropriate clothes for her. In fact, in many stores and brands she is now into juniors sizes now, but Walmart offers many of its kids’ clothes, especially the Wonder Nation brand, through a size 18 and in plus sizes. They are cute and stylish without looking like my elementary aged daughter is trying to dress like a 16-year-old. I’m a huge fan!
Girls’ dressy clothes
This Wonder Nation dress complete with a jacket is incredibly cute and would work well paired with leggings or tights. It comes in two different colors for sizes 6-18, is only $16.96 and is eligible for next-day delivery!
Another great Wonder Nation find is this faux fur vest and tulle skirt combo. It comes in four different colors for sizes 6 through 18 and is eligible for 2-day delivery for only $18.88!
This cute tulle dress with a quilted bomber jacket is also from Wonder Nation, comes in two different color options in sizes 6 through 18 for $16.96.
Not much says fancy like sequins and tulle! This sequin and tulle dress from Wonder Nation comes in both red and black in sizes 6 through 18 for only $11.88 and is eligible for next-day delivery. Nice! The only thing to note is that it’s cap-sleeves, which could be chilly if you live in a colder climate. It would pair nicely, though, with a pretty cardigan.
While it isn’t quite as dressy, this long-sleeved skater dress from Wonder Nation comes in solid red or black floral print. At only $7.88 for sizes 4 to 18 and eligible for next-day delivery, it’s a great option for a more casual setting. I can easily see my daughter wearing this with leggings to school or church any time.
If you can’t decide between the two colors, you can also order both the solid red and the print in one package for $15.76 with next-day delivery.
Does anything say Christmas more than a white, faux fur cape? Not really! This cute red dress with a white capelet is from Wonder Nation and comes in sizes 4 through 12 with sizes 10 and 12 offering a plus-sized option as well. It runs $19.96 and is eligible for 2-day delivery.
Another offering from Wonder Nation is this pleated skirt dress with a waist tie. It comes in two colors for only $7.88 and is eligible for next-day delivery. It’s offered in sizes 4 through 18.
If you’re looking for something more casual, these adorable knit skater Christmas dresses from Amy Byer come in five different holiday-related prints (though one is just red and white stripe, which could worn outside of Christmastime as well). In sizes small (7) through XL (16), the dress is $14.98 and eligible for 2-day delivery.
Coming in two different color combos, this skater dress and metallic jacket from Wonder Nation is adorable at $16.96. It’s eligible for next-day delivery and comes in sizes 6-18.
Boys’ dressy clothes
Let’s talk boy clothes, because I can’t leave them out. Walmart has also been great for finding clothes for my son. This season his is easing into a size 8, which is right on the middle between little boys and big boys. But most of what I find for him at Walmart goes sizes 4 to 18 or beyond. Wonder Nation and 365 Garanimals are my favorite brands for his clothes.
I mean, you can even get a full outfit with pants, button-down shirt and jacket for under $25, which is awesome! Check out this adorable Wonder Nation suit with a blazer for only $24.97 with next-day delivery eligibility. It comes in sizes 4 through 14/16 husky.
In a different color combination, this Wonder Nation suit with a blazer is just as cute for the same $24.97 with next-day delivery eligibility. It also comes in sizes 4 through 14/16 husky.
To get even dressier, Wonder Nation also offers two different suits with neckties that would be great for family photos or Christmas programs. Coming in charcoal with a blue shirt or black with a white shirt, these suits are only $24.97 and eligible for next-day delivery. They come in size 4 through 14/16 husky.
If you’re needing something a bit more casual but still dressy, this outfit from Beverly Hills Polo Club is ideal. It comes in two different color combos for only $12.50. It’s next-day delivery eligible and comes in sizes 4 through 12.
Another option for boys’ dress clothes is to mix and matcha and make your own outfits. Start with some basic dress pants and add a nice button-down shirt with or without a necktie. The great thing with this is you can even get one pair of dress pants and two shirts and be covered for multiple events.
These Wonder Nation twill chino pants come in four different colors and sizes 4 through 18 (as well as slim and husky sizes) for only $8.50 and are next-day delivery eligible. They’re a great foundation for any dressy outfit!
Pair the pants with one of four shirt and necktie options from English Laundry for the complete look. These shirts are $10 through $11.50, next-day delivery eligible and come in sizes 8 through 18.
If you are looking for a bit less casual, consider a button-down shirt without a tie. This denim button-down from Wonder Nation for $10.42 comes in black and indigo in sizes 4 through 14/16 husky.
Another option are these Wonder Nation plaid button-down shirts for only $10.42 come in four different colors in sizes 4 through 14/16 husky. They’re also next-day delivery eligible.
And, finally, if you are going for the dressy casual look, Wonder Nation jeans in dark wash would pair nicely with the button-down plaid shirts to look sharp but also still be comfortable. The jeans are only $8.92 and come in sizes 6 through 16 in two different colors.
