Wardrobe Tips for Winning Senior Portraits
It getting to be that time of the year again and the most asked question I get is "what do I wear for my session?" Well. choosing the perfect wardrobe for senior portraits can be a fun and exciting experience. And it doesn't have to be hard. Here are some tips to help you create a stylish and timeless look for your senior portraits:
Start with solid colors:
Solid colors are classic and timeless and look great in portraits. Choose colors that flatter your skin tone and complement your eyes and hair.
Avoid busy patterns:
Busy patterns can be distracting in portraits and take the focus away from you. Stick to simple patterns or solid colors.
Mix and match:
Mixing and matching pieces can add interest and texture to your photos. Try pairing a solid top with a patterned skirt or vice versa.
Accessories can add a lot to your outfit and help you express your personality. Consider adding a statement necklace, a pair of earrings, or a scarf to your look. These items shouldn't be the focus of the image but complimentary pieces to your outfit.
Consider the location:
Think about the location of your photo shoot when choosing your outfit. If you're taking photos outdoors, consider wearing comfortable shoes and bringing a jacket or sweater in case it gets cold.
Dress for the season:
Make sure to dress appropriately for the season. If it's hot outside, wear lightweight, breathable fabrics. If it's cold, opt for layers and warmer fabrics.
It's important to feel comfortable and confident in your outfit. Choose clothes that fit well and make you feel good.
Keep it timeless:
Remember, these photos will be around for years to come. Avoid trendy or faddish clothing that may look dated in a few years.
By following these tips, you can create a stylish and timeless look for your senior portraits that you will love for years to come.
