What to Wear:
Love it – Pick something that makes you feel comfortable and confident. If you like your outfit, it will definitely come across in the picture.
Keep it Simple – The goal of your headshot is to highlight you. It’s good to avoid busy patterns, bulky jewelry, fluffy fabric and logos that will distract from your face or things that may go out of style in a year or two.
The Right Color – It’s important to wear clothing that contrasts your skin tone. If you have a lighter skin tone, avoid white, beige and pastels. If you have a darker skin tone, avoid black and dark shades. Jewel tones (royal blue, emerald green, burgundy) look great on most people.
