Lynne's Tips for What to Wear for Professional Portraits

First off, when selecting an outfit for a headshot or a professional video, keep things understated. The goal is for the viewer to be looking at you and not be distracted by what you are wearing.

With that being said, what you wear is important.

Here are a few guidelines to follow for a stress-free shoot:

  • Wear something you feel your best in. If you feel good, you look good – and that will shine through your portraits. 

  • Wear a rich, solid color that compliments your skin tone. A little contrast is good when deciding what color to wear. A muted or muddy color may wash you out.

  • Wear clothing that fits properly – not too loose or too tight.

Ladies…

  • Avoid front pockets on your blouse.

  • Keep jewelry to a minimum – it must be classic and timeless.

  • For long hair, have a professional blow-out done beforehand.

Men…

  • Be sure to have a crisp, collared shirt.

  • If wearing a white shirt, be sure to contrast it with a navy, black, or dark charcoal blazer.

  • Ties should be a classic with a small pattern that isn’t too bold.
