Photo-Ready Outfits

What to wear to look good in photos

When it comes to looking good in photos, what you wear makes a big difference. Here are some tips on what to wear to look your best in photos:

Wear clothes that fit well and flatter your figure. Avoid baggy clothes or clothes that are too tight.

Choose colors that compliment your skin tone and make you look vibrant. Avoid wearing all black or white, as this can often wash you out in photos.

Accessories can also help to create a great look. Consider adding a pop of color with a scarf or statement necklace.

How many clothes do you own?

There are your comfy jeans and perhaps your favourite weekend jumper reserved for lazy Sundays. A large handbag sturdy enough to hold the kitchen sink and soon a new pair of All-Star sneakers. If you’re lucky.

Here’s a secret: I bet you have loads more than that. Most of the outfits hanging in your wardrobe are design classics and in the hallway too, the perfect shoes. Sometimes, choosing what to wear for a photoshoot feels like there are too many bells and whistles. It’s easy to lose sight of the old adage, simple is best.

You already own really amazing outfits that define your personality and are beautiful as well. Use these signature styles to help put your outfit together.
