CLOTHING TIPS FOR BUSINESS PROFESSIONALS
We recommend wearing layers for your session. Blouses or button-down shirts with a blazer, cardigan or sweater over-top looks classy and modern. This also gives us the option of doing some shots with and without the top layer, adding to a greater selection in your proofs. The same goes for gentlemen with ties. If you wear a tie, we will do some shots with and without the tie, so you'll have the option of a business standard or business casual look when reviewing your proofs.
Avoid tops that are too high on the neck (such as turtle necks). An open neck will give length to your face and make you look more slender. For women, also avoid tops that are too low. Too much cleavage is unnecessary when going for a professional headshot.
No matter what you choose, make sure that it's an outfit that makes you feel great!
CONSIDERING PATTERNS & SLEEVES
Solid color, subtle stripes and polka dots photograph well. Avoid logos and distracting patterns on the day of your photo shoot; they draw attention away from your face. Sleeve length can vary, but there should be at least a cap sleeve. Tank tops, sleeveless shirts, halter-tops and tube tops will show too much flesh in a headshot. Again, it's about your face and a great smile, not your bare chest!
