Senior photos are something you will only get to do one time in your life, so it is best to come in prepared. Are you unsure of what you need to do to prepare for your senior photos? One of the first steps is to decide what you will wear. Clix Portrait Studios has advice on how to select your wardrobe.


We are a portrait studio located in Plymouth, MN, and we can help you capture this moment in your life. Here are a few things to take into account as you decide what to wear:


●        Avoid Busy Patterns or Bright Colors

You might think your outfit is the most important part of your senior photos, but it isn’t. It turns out that your face is the most important feature in your senior photos, so the goal in selecting your wardrobe is to select clothes that will let your face dominate the portrait. Therefore, we don’t recommend any busy patterns or bright-colored clothing because they will draw people to focus on your clothes and not your face.


●        Avoid Light-Colored Bottoms with Bright-Colored Tops

If your pant color is lighter than the color of your shirt, it can have the illusion of making the bottom half of your body look larger than your top. Whether you are a male or female this isn’t a good look.


●        Avoid Short Skirts or Dresses

If you decide to wear a short skit or a short dress, it will limit the number of poses you can do. You can select a skirt or a dress, but just make sure it’s long enough to move around in and do multiple poses in comfortably.


●        Avoid Big Stripes

Big stripes can create the illusion that you are wider or taller than you actually are. Big stripes tend to “add” at least one clothes size if not more to your look, and this can distract from your face. If you select stripes, make sure they aren’t too large.


●        Avoid Big Logos

If you wear a shirt with a big logo, two things can happen. It can distract from your face, and it can also date your portrait.
