High School Senior portraits are an once-in-a-lifetime event. You’ve probably been thinking about this day for a long time, and one of the questions you are sure to ask is, “What do I wear?” Here are a few tips on what to bring and what to wear!
-Bring a variety of clothes. Try to include clothes from other seasons; just because it is summer, doesn’t mean that you can’t bring a great sweater or a pair of boots to get an “Autumn” look. Layers are always a great way to get a few different looks. Try to capture your personal style in what you bring.
-Solid colors are a great choice. Remember that darker, earthy colors will show off your face the best, and bright colors will distract. Try to steer clear of large, busy patterns, but small and subtle patterns like florals can look beautiful.
-Don’t be afraid to accessorize! Especially if you wear solid colors, accessories are the perfect way to add some of your personal taste, whether it’s vintage, sophisticated, or classic. Scarves, hats, and fun jewelry can add visual interest, as well as props like guitars or sports equipment.
-Be sure to try on everything before you go, and walk in front of a large mirror and in front of a light source to make sure it all fits right and isn’t see-through. Bring appropriate undergarments, such as a strapless nude bra so no straps peek out.
