dress for success!
Be sure to try on each outfit and take some time to gather all the pieces you’re considering, including ties and accessories such as cufflinks and pocket squares. Follow our tips below so that you’ll know exactly how to prepare for your session day!
What you’ll Need
- 2-3 coordinated outfits
Step 1: Do Laundry
Remove lint and iron all wardrobe pieces.
Step 2: Polish Your shoes
Help them look as dapper as the day you bought them.
Step 3: Try it all on
Be sure everything is form-fitting… not too big and not too tight.
Step 4: Get Organized
Coordinate pieces from each ensemble together on the same hanger. Example: shirt + jacket + trousers + tie.
KEEP IN MIND…
Your Shape & form
Fitted clothing which shows your shape works best for photographs. This applies to any body type. Outfits should fit properly, particularly your shirts and jackets. Always choose tailored over boxy.
Clothing with tight repetitive patterns or plaids will create an effect called moiré in a digital image. Stick to solids for the best shot. Patterns also detract from your best feature… your face!
consider your colors
Colors can play a big part of your headshot. They can be used to emphasise your branding colors or to compliment your skin tone. Whaever you do, choose colors that compliment your look and style.
