Have you ever wondered how these social media stars make it work? How does every picture of them seem so perfect! Just the right amount of style, effortless elegance, and pristine poise! Well, we have strung their success formula together to give you the breakdown of what to wear and perhaps what not to wear for stunning pictures every time. While the styling is completely up to you, these are a few basics that will help you get started.
- Keep It Simple
One thing that goes without saying is that keeping it natural is keeping it classy. While your favorite kurta maybe a myriad of floral patterns, you might want to consider something different for a photoshoot. Pick solid, muted colors that keep the attention to you. Try matching your outfit to your skin tone, since most high-end cameras tend to pick out the tiniest flaws and magnify them out!
Another way to keep it simple is to synchronize. It isn’t necessary that you stick to the same colour but you could work around the same colour palette. For example olive green and midnight blue or mustard yellow and saffron. This prevents one part of your clothing from becoming too prominent and evenly distributes out the exposure.
- Minimalist Jewelry
Accessories can make or break your entire look. While your personal choices may range from big chunky jewelry to absolutely nothing, it is always advisable to find a balance between the two. Focus on one statement piece that gives your attire an absolutely unique look, instead of many knick-knacks.
We have nothing against sleeveless clothing in particular. However, in a number of angles, the arms tend to flatten out and appear broader. One easy way to combat this is to remember to wear sleeves that reach your elbows. This will keep you from becoming a photoshop nightmare!
- A Bit of Drama
What is ethnic wear without a bit of drama? Indian ethnic wear looks lovely when it is flowy and dreamy. So, why not make use of our ample heritage of skirts and lehengas? These work great when clicked in motion and can almost look ethereal.
Every photographer will ask you to avoid big bold patterns. This is because they make for a distraction and dispels you as the focus of the picture. If you have to wear patterns, try to balance it out with nude makeup, a simple basic hairdo, and a no-nonsense backdrop.
- Black Or White
These two basic colours should form a major part of every fashionista’s wardrobe. While black makes for a more dramatic, bold statement, white never fails to please and surprise. If you are confused about what to wear, dive in for either of these two and you can’t be wrong.
Collars are a very useful trick for portraits. They frame your face, centering the attention on it. If you are looking to do close-ups collars are a great option!
