A good color scheme for family portrait?

We are about to take a family portrait again (we only do it about every 2 years) I don't want it to be a seasonal portrait(i.e. Christmas or fall colors, etc)

in the portrait will be myself& hubby, and our 4 daughters who vary in age ( a teenager, 9 yr.old, 2 yr.old, and a 3mos old baby).

**I only tell you their ages so you can be mindful of colors you suggest, for instance it's hard to dress an infant in all black (they rarely sell baby clothes in black)**

What color should we wear in our portrait that will look great, and timeless?

Would love to hear from professional photographers too for any advice.

    We did real casual pictures that turned out fantastic! Everyone wore blue jeans, nice white shirts,untucked,no shoes, the little ones even had white tee-shirts and it turn great!

    BTW I ordered one in black and white, it's beautiful.

    I don't think that everyone should be dressed in all one color but what I do know is that it is best to stick to solid colors. I have always liked the jeans and t-shirt pics best. Let everyone lick what color top they want to wear as long as it goes together.

    or maybe even

    (Replacing the third color with a darker soft blue/navy blue)

    For our most recent family portrait, we did a color scheme similar to the second scheme I suggested. I think it looked very good. (:

    Good luck~

    EDIT: and by the way, we used the mentioned solid colors & dark denim jeans.
