Lions, Tigers and Leopards?
What you wear for a headshot is important. You want to look the part, and be comfortable, but there are some things that don’t look well no matter what. Avoid stripes, horizontal, vertical or diagonal. They tend to highlight areas we don’t want highlighted, just as a tiger. Avoid polka-dots. They look good on a leopard, but not so much on us. Polka dots can create unusual patterns when clothing settles, and they draw attention to specific spots, literally. Solids are best for shirts and blouses. Small patterns are fine for ties, they add texture without taking away from the focus – you. Likewise, solid suit jackets and pants are best, but a neutral pattern or texture like corduroy or suede are good too. They idea is to ensure the focus of your headshot is you, not what you are wearing. Oh, and the lion, tame your hair. Wear it like you normally would, but make sure you have a fresh cut and a way to touch it up when you come to the studio.
