This is the second in a series about what to wear for your Plano senior pictures session.
Click here to read the first tip.
As I said in Part 1 of the series about senior photography, clothing that looks great in person does not always photograph well. For example, wearing a shapeless top may look great in person, but it might not not be flattering in a portrait. Don't get me wrong; I'm not saying you should ditch comfort. I'm all about comfort. But, for your Plano senior pictures session, consider sacrificing a tiny bit of comfort for something that is going to make a big difference in how great you look in your portraits.
Here are a few tips:
- Look for tops and jackets that are fitted at the waist instead of full in the waist.
- Look for clothing that has elastic at your natural waist. A drop waist won't be as flattering because it will be accentuating a part of your body that is larger than your waist, namely, your hips or lower abdominal area.
- If the shirt or dress can be belted, then, by all means, belt it. An elastic belt is really comfortable and looks great, too!
- Shirts that tie in the back can work well if they tie at the natural waist or higher.
