Ideas On What To Wear



Clothing ideas and tips for Picture Perfect Portraits



Simple is best. Solid colors are best in portraits. Avoid large, bold patterns and bright colors that draw attention away from your face.


Keep arms covered. Long sleeves draw attention away from your arms and helps bring the focus to your face.


Don't forget the bottom half. Our photographer may suggest a full-length pose. Make sure you coordinate portrait clothing from head to toe.


Emphasize the positives. Darker clothing slims. Light tones tend to emphasize body size.


Frame your face. Scoops or v-necks flatter shorter necks and full faces. Turtlenecks or high-necked garments flatter longer necks and slender faces.


Same styles keep things streamlined. Dress everyone in the same style. Don't mix casual and formal clothing in portraits.


Coordinate Colors


Wear light on white. Light pastel or white clothing looks best against a light-colored or white portrait background.


Wear dark on dark. Dark clothing looks best against darker backgrounds and creates a more formal mood in portraits.


Don't mix light and dark colors in portraits. Save stronger colors and patterns for accent items like scarves and neckties.
