I get this question so often, so I decided to make a blog post on advice and ideas of what to wear during your photo session! This is specifically for high school seniors or college grads, with local options to shop small in the DFW area!
I always recommend doing one casual outfit, one fun outfit, and one formal outfit if possible! I recommend avoiding busy patterns and sticking to neutral colors such as white, blush, denim, lavender, black, or tan. However, sometimes a pop of color or florals can be pretty for Spring! If you are doing a group shoot, think about colors that you can mix and match together such as pastels, or white + denim!
Casual Outfit Ideas:
For your casual look you could do a fun dress and sneakers, jeans and a top and wedges, or a skirt and boots! Here are some recs on where to shop:
Online- cute tops, blouses, casual dresses, skirts, pants…
Fun Outfit Ideas:
Use this as an opportunity to express yourself! Are you an athlete? Wear your jersey and some gear! Are you a cheerleader? Wear your uniform + poms! Are you a nursing major? Wear your scrubs! Are you a fashion major? Wear something super out there! You could also consider wear a school spirited outfit of your college T-shirt, or your school’s football jersey!
Where to shop: Jersey+ Cowboy Boots
Formal Outfit Ideas:
For a formal outfit, I recommend wearing a flattering dress in a neutral color such as white, black, or metallic. If you are planning to use a cap and gown, it looks great to wear a simple white dress with heels underneath!
Where to shop: formal dresses, pantsuits, skirts, blouses
Things To Bring:
I have a separate blog post that goes more in depth on what to bring and how to prepare for your photos, but here are a few props to consider! You can shop the ones I recommend on my amazon page HERE.
