When people start thinking about the types of outfits they are going to wear for their senior pictures, the outfits typically consist of something that is a bit dressy…and probably a little uncomfortable. This doesn’t have to be the case though! You can wear a comfy outfit like jeans and a t-shirt and still be fashionable and produce fantastic pictures, you just have to know how to style them correctly.
Anyone who has had to go to an event wearing something that looks great, but isn’t very comfortable, knows that it can show through in pictures. This is especially true when taking your senior photos because you will be the main focal point of he picture. Another thing to think about is that many times dressy outfits aren’t weather appropriate, so if you are having your senior photos taken outside, then you will have to deal with either being too cold or too hot, which won’t make for great pictures. If you choose to wear something comfortable like a t-shirt and jeans, then you won’t have to worry about that happening. You can just allow your natural beauty and happiness to shine through!
Picking out the perfect t-shirt to wear for your senior pictures might sound like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. First you will want to decide on a color or a pattern, it should complement your skin tone. If white washes you out, please do not bring white t-shirts. If you aren’t wanting to look to casual, then pick a simple one color t-shirt and then dress it up with some accessories. Regardless of what kind of t-shirt you choose, make sure that it is not faded, stretched out or torn. Even though you want to be comfortable, you don’t want to look sloppy.
The same rules above apply to the jeans that you’ll be wearing. You will want to make sure that regardless of what style jeans you choose, that they are clean, not wrinkly and don’t have ripped bottoms (the worn kind, not the trendy kind) or unintentional stains. Choose a pair that are comfortable, but nothing that is too baggy, as that can create a sloppy look. When deciding on what color jeans you want to wear, make sure that they are complementary to whatever color top you are wearing. Jeans with a dark wash would be perfect to pair with a light colored top, and vice versa.
Choosing the right accessories to wear with your jeans and t-shirt can really make an outfit look great. Go for casual, but intricate earrings and a necklace to add some style to your look. Try to avoid wearing sneakers, instead go for a nice (but comfortable) boot or heels.
