How to Dress: As a general rule, wear solid colors, as stripes and patterns draw attention away from your face. Avoid wearing turtlenecks and large loose clothing, as these often make the neck seem nonexistent. Shorts or capris have a tendency to make legs appear shorter than they are.

Colors: Solid colors are easiest to coordinate, but primary or complimentary colors also look great and bring energy to the photograph. Dark pants or jeans with dark shoes give texture and visually anchor a portrait. When choosing color schemes, consider not only what looks best on you, but also what colors will look best on wall portraits and compliment your home’s décor.

Accessories: Keep it to a minimum. Avoid hats, hair ornaments, and sparkly or costume jewelry unless it does not distract from the main subject, you.

Footwear: Avoid running shoes, white socks, and heavy footwear. Also, consider fashionable boots, sandals or bare feet for casual photos.
