Tips on what to wear
1) For a slimmer look, form fitting is definitely best. Women, look for figure-hugging clothes.
2) Think textures. Textures like lace, ruffles, and ruching add visual interest. Look for textured tops in solid colors. Avoid patterns as they may detract from your face.
3) Bring a variety of colors-- something light (ivory, nude, pastel), something dark (black, royal blue, burgundy, hunter green or charcoal gray is great), something with a pop of color (something that makes your eyes pop is best.) -- whatever you feel suits you best.
4) Look for layers. Add a form-fitting jacket, slim fit knit cardigan, or wispy scarf in coordinating colors to cover and slim your arms.
5) Look for the V necklines and sleeve lengths that flatter you. 3/4 sleeves are universally flattering and slimming.
1) Men always look in tuxedos or dark suits, tie and jacket/blazer or dark jacket with an open neck shirt or turtleneck.
1) For family portrait, pick a color scheme for the whole family outfit. Dark or lighter colors are the best and avoid prints.
