WHAT TO WEAR FOR THE GIRLS

  1. For a slimmer look, form fitting & figure-hugging is definitely best.

  2. Avoid patterns as they may detract from your face.

  3. Think textures. Textiles like lace, ruffles, sequins & ruching add visual interest.

  4. Bring a variety of colors. Something light. Something dark. A pop of color that brings out your eyes.

  5. Avoid cap sleeves. Sleeveless is great on toned arms. 3/4 sleeves are universally flattering and slimming.

  6. Consider layers. Add a form fitting jacket or slim knit cardigan.

  7. Look for a variety of necklines to mix up your looks.

  8. Select jewelry that speaks to your style. Subtle or bold? Bring the pieces that are true to you.

  9. Bring coordinating bottoms. Many shots are 3/4 length. Bring pants or skirts that match your tops.

  10. Bring appropriate undergarments. Foundational pieces (like shapewear) will help you look and feel great!

GUIDELINES FOR MEN

  1. For a trimmer look, opt for slim fit shirts and jackets.

  2. Keep patterns to a minimum. Print ties and pin stripes are okay.

  3. Look for layers. Add a form fitting jacket or v-neck sweater to vary your look.

  4. Bring a variety of colors. Something dark. Something light. A pop of color that brings out your eyes.

  5. Long sleeves are preferred to short sleeves for a clean, polished look. Prefer casual? Rolled sleeves will do the trick!

  6. A collared shirt and suit is a must for stylish professionals.

  7. Bring coordinating bottoms. Many shots are 3/4 length.

  8. Bring coordinating shoes and socks. Footwear may come into frame with seated poses.

  9. Prepare your favorite accessories. Watches, cuff links, glasses and pocket squares should be clean and presentable.

  10. Come with clean, manicured nails. Hands come into frame a lot so make sure yours are camera ready.
