What to Wear: Choosing the Perfect Outfit!

Your outfit will make a huge difference to your photos so choose something that suits your personality and your brand. Make sure your clothes suit your body type and fit well. Simpler is better but don’t be afraid to add a pop of color or a bold accessory to add some personality and flair. Keep you skin tone and hair in mind when choosing an outfit as contrasting colors make for some of the best photos. Want to see what you might look like in photos in a certain outfit or hairstyle? Take a few selfies to decide what works and what doesn’t.

Tips for Women

  • Avoid baggy clothing. Clothing that’s too big adds weight so opt for something that’s slightly smaller to avoid the sloppy look.

  • Don’t wear intense colors or busy prints

  • For jewelry, everybody says “classic & simple” but I say GO FOR IT! Wear a bold piece or a contrasting color!

  • Opt for a hairstyle that adds body & volume to your hair. Don’t wear your hair in a ponytail

  • Choose the right undergarments

  • Wear MORE make-up then you usually wear on a daily basis. No…the chapstick won’t do :)

  • Avoid All Black, which easily shows stray hair and specs

  • Avoid sleeveless blouses or dresses

Tips for Men

  • If you are wearing a suit, it should be tailored

  • Wear a fitted shirt. Clothing that’s too big adds weight so opt for something that’s slightly smaller to avoid the sloppy look.

  • Ensure that your undershirt is not visible
