Adding a formal coat or fun jacket to your holiday party outfit is a great way to complete your photo-ready look. Why cover up your fancy fashion with snow gear when you could complement it with faux fur, velvet, or a smart and sophisticated overcoat? Nothing beats a great coat or jacket to add the perfect final touch and make a special event extra special.

Valentine’s Day Ideas for Kids

February 10, 2016 in Holiday Style

 

Appaman Valentine's Day Kids

 

Besides Halloween, Valentine’s Day is one of our favorite holidays to celebrate with the kids. While February 14th might have been a day of romance before your kids were born, now it’s become a time to have fun and create traditions with the little ones in your family. Kids love holidays and there are tons of fun ways to create memories and celebrate with them on Valentine’s Day. Here, some fun Valentine’s Day ideas on how to spend this special day with your sweeties.

Vanilla Bean Raspberry Cupcakes

Bake Something Special
Getting messy with the kids in the kitchen is such a fun way to relax and bond. The first thing you need to do is not to stress about the mess! Let the dishes pile up and who cares if flour gets all over the floor. We love this yummy vanilla bean and raspberry cupcake recipe from the Pearls on a String blog. Cupcakes this pretty require a special tablescape, too. Toss some glitter on the table (don’t worry, you can vacuum later) and get out the sill straws. Invite friends over to help you and the kids devour the cupcakes.

Appaman Valentine's Day

Schedule a Date With Your Kids
A romantic night with your sweetheart might be a distant memory when you have kids, but that’s ok. Who wants to pay double the price for dinner just because it’s on February 14th anyway? How about planning a date day with the entire family? Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday this year, so you can make day of it. Go see a movie, take a walk in the park or just put your phone on airplane mode for the day and focus on quality time. Project Motherhood’s Allison Cooper pictured above with son Branden (wearing Appaman’s Shoulder Panel Sweater and Flannel Shirt) has refocused her celebration of Valentine’s Day since her son was born to include the whole family.

 

Appaman Valentine's Day Boys

Get Dressed Up for a Fancy Dinner
Kids love any excuse to play dress up. Pull out their fancy party clothes– a pretty dress for the girls and a sharp suit for the boys — and have Valentine’s Day dinner at home. Put on some old school love songs, like Frank Sinatra or Nat King Cole have a dance party with the kids. If you and the hubby want to relive your pre-kid days, have two dinner seatings. Serve the kids dinner early then put them to bed before you eat. Pop open the Prosecco and take your sweet time dining.

Celebrating New Year’s Eve With Kids: How to Get to Midnight With No Meltdowns

December 23, 2015 in Holiday Style

New Years Eve Ideas Kids | Appaman

New Year’s Eve is a very different experience once you have kids. The notion of a see-where-the-night-takes-you plan is out the window when little ones are part of the celebration. Instead, a structured evening is the best approach. But it doesn’t  mean you still can’t have fun! Plan little surprises throughout the evening for them and plan on lots of snacks and probably a few yawns. If all else fails, you can always rent the Minion movie and pop some popcorn. Here, some fun ideas and activities for celebrating New Year’s Eve with kids.

Appaman New Years Eve Outfits Girls

DIY Noise Makers
No question, one of the best parts about New Year’s Eve for kids is the fact you get to make some noise! Sure there are countless horns, blowers and the like you can pick up at a party store, but why not make use out of some bubble wrap sitting in your basement? We love this fun tip from Martha Stewart. Paint the flat side of the bubble with a festive colored marker and put a white runner or some white paper underneath. Then when it’s time to make some noise, let the little ones jump to their heart’s content.

Ballon Pop Countdown
Blow up balloons for every hour–or half hour–you’ll be celebrating and let the kids pop them themselves. If the kids are going to stay up until midnight, create balloons for every 15 minutes starting at 11:00pm.

Mocktail Hour
Get kids in the New Year’s Eve spirit with alcohol-free spirits. Sparkling apple cider is a no-brainer, but we’re into the idea of creating a signature mocktail for the evening. An Appaman favorite is the Tom & Jerry, where you spoon a big heap of beaten egg and sugar batter over a cup of hot water. Kids love it because they basically get a cup of sticky drinkable sugar.

Photo Booth Time
You’d be hard pressed to find a kid that doesn’t love dress-up time. Create a fun DIY photo booth with a bunch of funny props and costumes then put up a white bed sheet for the backdrop. Have the adults take turns snapping pics. Not only is it a blast for the kids, but you’ll have some awesome pics to commemorate the night.

New Years Eve Outfit Ideas for Kids
As a rule, if it sparkles, it’s New Year’s Eve worthy! But if your little girl is not so into sparkle, we love the idea of pairing a tuxedo jacket over a tuxedo blouse with a pair of pants or even skinny jeans. For more traditional girlie-girls, let her ring in 2016 in a fun and festive dress, like the Appaman Confetti Dress or our groovy Mod Dress. Boys can get into the act by adding a cool pair of suspenders and a bowtie to jeans and a button down shirt. He can also get major style points for wearing a sharp blazer over his favorite graphic tee.

The Best Stocking Stuffers for Toddlers and Kids

December 15, 2015 in Holiday Style

Appaman best stocking stuffers for kidsThe countdown to Christmas has begun! If your stockings aren’t stuffed yet, then what are you waiting for? We love the idea of surprising the little ones on your list with a fabulous pair of sunnies or a groovy set of new undies for the holidays. Leave the big reveal toys under the tree and delight them with a fun hat or a dapper pair of suspenders for their stocking treat. Here, our top picks for the best stocking stuffers for toddlers and kids that they’ll actually get major mileage out of all year long.

Stocking Stuffer Idea: Fun Socks
While your kid may not have put ‘socks’ on his list for Santa, he’ll be pretty jazzed when he finds these awesome pairs of Monkey and Checks Socks from our cool collaboration with Baby Legs.

Stocking Stuffer Idea: Cool Tie
We know you want to wear sports jerseys every single day of the week, but sorry kid, there are going to be some fancy schmancy parties mom and dad will take you to in 2016. For those more formal affairs, won’t he be so much happier in a cool Appaman Logo Monkey Tie? We think so.

Stocking Stuffer Idea: Spiffy Hat
Forget gifting him (or her!) another boring hat. The idea of wearing a dapper Fedora hat with anything from jeans and a tee to a formal suit just makes the whole day better. He gets to channel his favorite crime-busting hero and you get to take lots of photos of him for Instagram using #MiniHumphreyBogart.

Stocking Stuffer Idea: Infinity Scarf
Your little lady will get to be just like mom in a pretty new Infinity Scarf. She won’t even realize that it’s keeping her little neck nice and toasty because she’ll be too busy thinking about how chic she looks. Also major plus, the circle design insures it won’t fall off.

Best Stocking Stuffers for Kids Appaman

Stocking Stuffer Idea: Cool Shades
Protect her peepers while giving her major rock star street cred with our Rainbow Rockabilly Sunglasses. There’s not a chance she’ll forget to wear her shades with this cool pair in her possession.

Stocking Stuffer Idea: Toasty Mittens & Matching Hat
Soft (and pink!) on the outside and incredibly warm on the inside, our Mittens in Zephyr Melange and Tilly Hat in the same shade are a girl’s (and mom’s) dream come true for winter.

Stocking Stuffer Idea: Awesome Undies
These are not your everyday undies. To make underwear into fun-derwear, just add unicorns! Our Unicorn Undies for Girls come in a pack of three and are housed in a cute box. She’ll be sold.

Stocking Stuffer Idea: Dapper Suspenders
For the cool cat on your holiday gift list, our Suspenders for Kids are a cool way for him to personalize his look. Whether he rocks them with cuffed jeans or with a dressy suit, he’ll be the sharpest one in the room. Not to mention, suspenders are the perfect accessory to pull off a New Year’s look that’s totally unique.

Do you know what your little trick or treater is going to be for Halloween this year? We love the idea of a homemade kids Halloween costume using pieces from their wardrobe. We think of it as money well spent! Here, some of the best Halloween costume ideas for kids using pieces from Appaman’s fall clothing collection.

Homemade Halloween Costume Ideas
Break Dancer
Flashback to the ’80s with our Parker Sweats in Black. Thanks to the three zipper pockets and a stylish slouchy look, he can rock these cool sweatpants way after Halloween is over. The Uptown Denim jacket, a cool faux layered hoodie and denim look, is just at home in 2015 as it would on the streets of NYC in 1985. High top sneakers are a must-do for any legit breakdancing outfit. Add the Varsity High Tops to his Halloween look for kicks that will be super comfy and cool for trick or treating and beyond.

Tap Dancer
Tap dancer style is easy to create with some key wardrobe items she can wear all year round. The Appaman Tuxedo Blazer and Tuxedo Shorts are adorable on their own but when paired with an Appaman Logo Bow Tie, the look becomes total tap dancer.
