5 Fashion Tips for Girls’
One of the most common questions I get from senior portrait clients is what they should wear. My answer is always to tap into their personal style, to feel comfortable in their clothing, and to not be afraid to get a little playful. Everyone’s outfit is going to be different, and that’s exactly the point. Still, if you’re looking for a bit more guidance, the following advice may help.
1. Pair Solids with Prints
I often recommend wearing solid blocks of color since they photograph really well, but you can also incorporate some fun prints, as well. The key is to keep the prints as an accent versus the feature, and to stick with one type of print versus multiple.
2. Play Up Your Accessories
Now’s your chance to really have some fun with your style and play up your outfit with fun accessories. Think hats, belts, jewelry, and layers.
3. Stick to the Season
This one is quite simple. Throw on cozy cardigans and knee-high boots for fall, off-the-shoulder tops and rompers for summer, coats and scarves for winter, etc.
4. Wear Shoes that Make Sense
If we’re going to be somewhere earthy, opt for flats, boots, or something that blends into the scene. High heels generally don’t mix well with soil. Remember, the goal is to be comfortable, stylish, and still yourself.
5. Make Sure You’re Comfortable
On that note, we’ll be sitting, standing, and posing for a couple hours, so make sure that whatever you wear you feel comfortable moving around in. This can make a huge difference in how the shoot goes and how the images turn out!
Most importantly! Make sure you have FUN and be YOU!
