Updated: May 23

Choosing the right outfit for your headshot studio session is so important as it can significantly impact the overall look and feel of your photos.

Here are some tips to help you select the perfect outfit:

Tip 1: Keep it Simple and Classic

  • Solid colors or subtle patterns work best as they draw attention to your features rather than your clothes

Tip 2: Dress for your headshot purpose:

  • For Corporate headshots, choose professional attire such as a well fitted suit or blouse with a blazer

  • If the headshots are for a more creative, branding session (more casual), consider smart-casual attitude that reflects your personal style while still looking polished.

Tip 3: Lay out your outfits and try on before your come to the studio:

  • Paying attention to fit and comfort is so key. Important to select clothing that fits well and makes you feel confident and comfortable. Avoid clothing that is too tight or too lose.

Tip 4: Co-ordinate Colors

  • If you're taking group headshots, consider coordinating colours with the other individuals to create a cohesive look.

  • Choose colours that compliment each other without being too matching. Avoid wearing clashing colours or overly bright hues that may be distracting.

Tip 5: Avoid Busy Patterns and Logos:

  • Steer clear of clothing with busy patterns, large logos, or distracting graphics as they can take the focus away from your face. Stick to simple, understated designs that won't compete with your features.

Tip 6: Bring Outfit options & accessories:

  • Bring a few different outfit options to the studio so you can experiment and see what works best on camera. Don't forget to consider accessories such as jewelry, scarves, or ties that can add visual interest to your look without overpowering the frame.

Tip 7:  What to wear at your headshot session if you’re doing a branding session?

Consider Your Branding Colours:

  • Consider how your outfit reflects your personal brand or industry. Your clothing should be consistent with your brand image and convey the message you want to portray to your audience.
