Accessories can make or break an outfit, right? The right necklace, earrings, scarf and even pair of sunglasses can turn a regular ensemble into one that wows. But, when it comes to professional headshots, sometimes less is more. After all, the main focus should be on you, not what you’re wearing.
Earrings – A nice pair of studs can actually help to brighten up your face; however, anything much more flashy can actually draw the attention away from your face.
Necklace – The goal with a necklace is to not intersect with the neckline of your top. It should be shorter than that. If you really want to wear a necklace, where something with some substance to it so it adds to the photograph, such as a nice set of pearls.
Scarves – A scarf can end up looking bulky in a photograph; however, if this is a part of your signature brand look, by all means bring it along.
Sunglasses – Generally speaking, we want to see your eyes in your photograph so it’s best to leave your sunglasses at home.
Tie – Ideally, your tie will match or compliment your outfit without drawing the attention away from your face.
As you can see, when it comes to accessories you will stand out more if you aren’t wearing any. But, if your signature brand calls for big jewelry, hoop earrings or a beautiful scarf, we can always make that work!
