What to wear for headshots tips – San Jose Business Photographer – Photos by Kim E
Ready for your headshots but not sure what to wear? Here are some tips to think about what to wear for headshots:
• Texture: Look for textured clothing in solid colors or subtle patterns. You can also add some personality by choosing a necklace that fits nicely into the shape of your neckline.
• Layers: Add a form-fitting jacket, or slim-fit knit cardigan, in a coordinating or contrasting color to add visual interest. It also allows for you to take off for another look.
• Necklines/Sleeves: For women, think of a top that can elongate the neck (i.e. V-neck, scoop-neck) or show off your collar (i.e. ballet, sweetheart, or cowl style neckline). For sleeves, 3/4 sleeves are flattering.
• Branding: Think of incorporating your brand colors either as a jacket/blouse or accent with necklace or scarf. Be fun, playful and be you!
Now that you have some tips on what to wear for headshots, curious about when you should update your headshot?
