Picture day is a very important day in school. Well, at least it is for me. I like to make sure that my outfit is perfect, memorable, but most importantly classic. Have you ever looked at an old yearbook and think "What were they wearing? Look at their hair!"? That's what I always think of when I'm choosing my outfit for picture day. Here are my best tips for looking picture perfect in your yearbook or class picture this year.
1.) Keep your look timeless & classic. Don't wear anything too trendy. The trendier you look now the more outdated you'll look in 30 years when your kids are flipping through your yearbook.
2.) Don't wear shirts that have graphics or writing on them. For some reason at my school when kids would wear Abercrombie t-shirts on picture day the writing would always come out backwards in the photo. This is also the same with graphics. So be careful of this when your choosing your top.
3.) Skip wearing long pendants. Pick a shorter necklace instead. Remember, if this is your school picture you'll only be shown from a bit below your chest up. If you wear a long necklace it's only going to be cut out of the picture.
4.) Wear tops with detail on the neck/collar. This will add a bit of interest to your photograph. You don't want to look generic. Ever.
5.) Don't over accessorize. Keep it simple.
Not only do you want to be careful in choosing your outfit you also want to be thoughtful when it comes to doing your makeup. All-over your lid blue eyeshadow, red lips, and raccoon eyes are not becoming looks. Keep it natural.
