if you are absolutely confident that you look fine in what you are wearing, come as you are. I can roll with it!
I do recommend though, that you bring 2 shirts, 2 jackets (one lighter, one darker) and perhaps 3 ties.
Don't worry about pants or shoes.
They will not be seen.
Of course if you are a funky entrepreneur ... dress appropriately!
I do have white shirts in every size
which photograph fine,
so if you just can't find one,
I can lend you a white or dark grey shirt.
The key word is OPTIONS
Bring a few options!
I prefer darkish clothes which are not too detailed.
Better to keep your eyes as the focal point... not your outfit!
If you want colour, bring it!
And please... bring me some options!
You will only know what looks best
when we shoot it and see the photo on my computer.
Scarlet and blue, and bluish grey shirts are great.
Yellow, purple, orange and green can be tricky
(this is not a rule - surprise me!)
But the safest options are the more boring colours...
- white shirt/black jacket
Keep the attention (what little exists)
on your expression, don't distract with too much interest
down low in the shot.
Pure WHITE blouses... can be tricky without a jacket.
They can tend to look a bit "virgin sacrifice-y".
And a white jacket can look a bit "rich bitch".
But!... a white shirt under a dark jacket is a
timeless and unbeatable combination!
Remember the Devil wears Prada?
They depicted her as a dag with lots of colour.
The transformed woman's colour palette was monotone.
