Outfitted: Picture Perfect Fashion

 

Hi everyone,

Looking photogenic is not something that comes naturally to most of us, which can make picture day all the more intimidating. Luckily, though, I’ve figured out some great tricks over the years that can help! Smart outfit planning is one of the first steps to nailing that “picture-perfect” look, so for today’s Outfitted post, I’m breaking down my latest tutorial to help you find the right look for any and all of your photo ops.

1. Stick with studs - Even though dangling earrings are really pretty in person, they tend to make your neck appear shorter than it is when photographed. Instead, pick a pair of cute studs that showcase your taste and personality!

2. Choose your neckline wisely - Most school pictures are all about your face, so you want to choose a neckline that draws the eye upward. There are lots of ways to make this happen. Here a few ideas…

3. Wear non-reflective lenses - If you wear glasses, make sure they have non-reflective lenses or an anti-reflective coating so you avoid unwanted reflections from the flash!
