What should I wear for Dating Profile Photos, Headshots, LinkedIn Headshots, Social Media head shots, Business Headshots and Branding Photos?
Whether you need updated headshots for LinkedIn, Facebook or Instagram, or you want Dating Profile photos for Bumble, Tinder, E-Harmony, OkCupid, Hinge, Match or others.
One of the biggest questions when preparing for your portrait session is “What should I wear?”.
There are definite guidelines that will help you look your best in photos.
BRING A VARIETY OF OUTFITS – both LIGHT and DARK and NEUTRAL and COLORFUL
Bring, or email outfit photos beforehand and I can help you plan your outfits
Blue, navy, and dark gray are classic business attire options that will flatter anyone.
It’s also fun to bring in some jewel tones and pops of color and a light-colored neutral like peach or ivory. Bring an assortment so you have a varied gallery.
. And if you REALLY need help – send me photos of your individual wardrobe pieces and I’ll recommend outfits for you!
AVOID OBVIOUS PATTERNS AND STRIPES.
Choose solid colors if possible. Bold stripes and patterns will also distract the eye away from the most important part of the photo: you
! The key here is to keep things tidy and simple so that the attention is on your face, not on what you’re wearing.
FOR A SLIMMER LOOK, CHOOSE WELL FITED & FIGURE FLATTERING CLOTHING.
A loose fitting shirt will make you look larger than you are…when clothing is tailored to you it is much more flattering.
AVOID SLEEVELESS and SHORT SLEEVES
Bare arms tend to photograph heavy even if you are thin, so I recommend flattering 3/4-length and long sleeves.
Make sure that the sleeves are form-fitting and not puffy as that will make your arms look larger.
BRING A VARIETY OF NECKLINES
Bring several neckline options with you so we can capture a variety of looks. For women, a V-neck always works well, as well as a scoop neckline or a boatneck.
CHOOSE CLASSIC AND SIMPLE JEWELRY AND ACCESSORIES
When it comes to jewelry or watches, keep things simple.
ANYTHING THAT SHOWS OFF YOUR PERSONAL STYLE IS BEST.
One of the biggest things to remember when it comes to selecting what to wear for your headshot is that anything that represents your personal style will be better than a piece of clothing that follows all the rules.
If you love patterns or bright colors, wear that for at least one of your outfits.
Your headshot doesn’t have to be boring or typical if you don’t fit into that description yourself. Showing off your personality will make your headshot memorable and personal, too.
And if you’ve been meaning to update your headshots let me know!
