Family Photo Outfits for Under $200

 

It’s easy to fall into the matching outfit slump when dressing up for your family photos. We have all seen it, or maybe even done it. All white shirts, all khaki pants. All wearing shades of blue, no patterns. You don’t have to be scared to inject a bit of personality, color and pattern into your outfits and you do not have to match!

You also do not have to spend a ton of money to create a great family look! Going through your closets and pulling out some of your favorite outfits and laying them out together is a great way to start. If you find that you need to get some new things in order to coordinate better for a photo that pops, here are a few ideas to get you started!

Cobalt, Lemon Yellow, Sky Blue and Tan

affordable family outfits - warm tones
Mixing warm shades, even though all different colors, gives an overall cohesive color palette that is rich and bright. Choosing from wine tones, red, orange, coral and pink gives lots of options so that everyone is wearing a different color. Avoid choosing colors that are too similar (like two reds) because they may clash. Add in dark brown for a rich neutral and mix white throughout.

      As time passes, the items for sale will become unavailable unfortunately. The prices should all be accurate unless the seller themselves has changed the price since the post has been written. I hope that you can at least take inspiration from the outfit collections and create your own versions within your budget for your family!
