Cotton Outfit

Avoid cotton outfits

When it comes to photoshoots, keep in mind that what looks great in person may not look as amazing in photos. Cotton outfits should be avoided as it looks less colorful and vivid in photos. Plus, any lint or fuzz can be easily noticeable in photos.

Contrast Background

Choose colors that will set you apart from the background

If your background is white, then opt for something colorful like red, blue or black. If your background is already colorful, opt for clothes in neutral shades.

Large Prints

Avoid wearing clothes with large images, characters or prints

The focal point of the photos should be you. If your clothes have large graphics or prints, it can detract the focus off you.


Don’t match—coordinate

Wearing matching colors used to be a great trend in photos but it is already a thing of the past. Today, the trend is to wear colors that complement each other. This will allow your photos to look more coordinated.

Bright Colored heels

Let your shoes shine through
