5. CLOTHING – Your clothes should be well pressed, well fitting, and not oversized or too tight. Also, you should be able to move with relative ease in them. Good TIP for those working on the day of your session: We highly suggest you bring your headshot wardrobe to work on hangers and change into them just before you meet us for your headshots.
6. PATTERNS + TEXTURES – These are fine, please, just no graphic tees and tops.
7. COLOURS – Neutrals with a POP of colour. We’ll explain below.
7a. FLATTERING + SLIMMING – Ok, who doesn’t want these tips? The magic word: length. It is what flatters our silhouette the most, whatever size you are. To help achieve that, we highly recommend to go monochromatic with your colour choice, particularly a good one if you are having both almost and full head-to-toe photos done. Having said that, it’s not a bad thing to include a pop of colour. The key word here, and we will talk more about this later, is “pop”. If you like patterns, try patterns that are small and tight. V-necks or more open necks with an elongating accessory, such as a long necklace really helps to lengthen as well. Our biggest suggestion is always refer back to tip #5 – ensure your clothes are well pressed and well fitting.
8. FOOTWEAR – If your headshots are actually going to be full head-to-toe shots, remember your shoes should be like your clothes, tidy and clean.
