How to Dress for your Corporate Headshot

How not to dressWhen dressing for your corporate headshot, it’s important to choose attire that reflects both you and your company.
Here are some tips to help you look your best:
  1. Choose mid-tone colors: Avoid wearing pure white or black, as these colors can be harsh and unflattering. Instead, opt for mid-tone colors that complement your skin tone.
  2. Consider the background: If the background of your headshot is dark, wear light or vivid colors to create contrast. If the background is light, wear medium to dark colors.
  3. Avoid patterns and prints: Busy patterns and prints can be distracting and date your photo. Stick to solid colors or subtle textures instead.
  4. Avoid short sleeves: Short sleeves can look unprofessional and detract from your face. Consider wearing long sleeves or 3/4 sleeves instead.
  5. Bring multiple frames: If you wear glasses, bring multiple frames to the shoot. This will give you more options and help you find the perfect pair for your headshot.
  6. Avoid flashy jewelry: Keep your jewelry simple and understated. You want your headshot to be about you, not your accessories.
