4 Things NOT to Wear for your Senior Pics Even though we may love that bold floral dress or bright magenta top, it doesn’t mean it’s the best option for your senior pictures. Here’s a few things you should stay away from on your big day: PS The picture of awesome Maggie is NOT an example of what not to wear. This outfit was flawless!
Now onto what NOT to wear.
1. Neon: while these bright colors may be fun for a night on the town, they aren’t that great for your senior pictures. Neon colors actually have the ability to cast their tones onto your face and give you an odd glow. They can also overpower your beautiful face and nobody wants that!
2. Busy Patterns: these kinds of outfits can drown you out in their loudness. Remember that the first thing we want to notice is YOU in your pictures... not a loud pattern that takes away from your face. If you’re wanting to wear a patterned dress or top, that’s totally ok, just make sure it’s a more subtle pattern.
3. Colors that don’t complement your skin tone: did you know that depending on your skin tone, there are colors that could totally wash you out and make you look drab?
4. Clothing that is loose fitting top to bottom: Here's my rule. If the bottom is loose fitting, the top should be well fitted. If your top is loose fitting, the bottom half of the outfit should fit tighter. WHY? Because balance for one. But also, to address a more sensitive reason (please don't come at me for this one) but if both the top half of your outfit and the bottom half are fairly loose fitting, you risk appearing larger than you are on camera. Not only that, but your outfit may not look at chic or well put together which is the last thing you need for senior photos.
