{What to Wear} Be Bold

I admit it. My wardrobe is filled with black and gray. It's so easy: black is slimming and everything matches. However, when it comes to choosing what to wear for your portrait session, bold colors photograph well and can really do wonders for your complexion, hair and eye color. And best of all? Bold jewel tones are really in style right now. So here goes, another what to wear for my friends out there who would like some inspiration on how to look your best for your next photo session.
I have yet to meet anyone who doesn't look good in a bold jewel tone like the ones above. You don't have to wear a whole outfit in the color, you can choose just a top in one of these colors and pair with a nice dark pair of jeans and top with a neutral brown or gray jacket.

More tips for choosing your photography session clothing.

  • Choose clothes that fit with your location and consider making outfit changes.
  • Choose a color pallete that will compliment your complexion.
  • Try starting with neutral shades of gray, black, or brown and then add a color or two to make your photos pop.
  • Try layering clothing that mixes textures.
  • Look for colors and patterns that compliment each other.
  • Don't hesitate to incorporate matching hats, scarves, sunglasses, umbrellas or other accessories, but if you do this, you may want to limit patterns in your clothes to allow for more variations in accessories. Adding and removing accessories can add variety to your photos.
  • Choose clothes that don't just fit your body type but your personality and style. You should feel comfortable in the clothing you choose. If you're not comfortable, it tends to show in the pictures.
  • Be you!
