You're probably on this site because you're considering a professional headshot. Well, knowing what to wear in your headshot is just as important as knowing what to wear in real life, so that's why I'm writing this post!
Let me first make this clear: I have never had a sense of style! But by doing a bit of research and putting some color-matching rules together (and asking a stylist friend of mine for a couple tips & tricks), I'm now fortunate to say I almost always look well-dressed when I go out. This article was specifically written to help people who HATE picking outfits (especially men) to quickly figure out what to wear and ensure they look good!
The entire process of picking out an outfit and getting dressed with my system takes less than five minutes
I LOVE systems and setting something up once so it saves me a ton of time later on (an awesome book I highly recommend on systems is called The Checklist Manifesto). Today I'd like to share a super simple system I built to ensure that I'm able to perfectly match my outfits and look great on a daily basis - all while feeling extremely comfortable & relaxed in my clothes - and using EVERY piece of my wardrobe.
So why did I create this system? Because I used to wear the most terribly mismatched outfits - sometimes so bad that my team would make fun of me and say, "What are you wearing? That looks ridiculous!" Because of those jabs, I decided to set up a system to ensure I never looked foolish again, especially since I am a photographer interacting with tons of clients and occasionally doing public speaking. I believe we all have to ensure that we present ourselves well since first impressions are constantly being formed about us.
