What to do when you don’t know what to wear

April 6, 2021

This month, we’re going to be focusing on how to style your session. One of the most common questions I get is around what to wear for your branding session. While I do all I can to prepare and advise you, you still might feel stuck! Here are a couple of things you can do when you don’t know what to wear.

Go back to the basics, and pick the more neutral option.

When trying to decide between a couple options, it’s always a safe bet to pick the more neutral outfit. Consider all the ways you’ll be using these images. Neutral or solid color attire gives your images more versatility, so your marketing design options can be more open-ended. Blending images in with existing branding can be tricky sometimes, so neutral is a safe option!

Consider what makes you feel most confident.

When I was having my own branding photos taken, I didn’t know what to wear. My photographer and I sorted through a couple options, and picked out a dress. Just seconds before we went to shoot on location, I changed my mind and knew it wasn’t the right fit. I just didn’t feel like myself in that dress! You can always ignore my fashion advice if it’s not the right fit for you. If you don’t feel confident, it will show.

Ask your photographer when you don’t know what to wear!

When you really don’t know what to wear, ask me! There are plenty of opportunities for us to chat before your session. We can hop on zoom and go through your closet. I will also send you a thorough guide on how to prepare, and more advice on what to wear for your branding session. We’ll get you styled in something that suits your brand, your personality, and fuels your confidence!
