On many shoots when there’s no wardrobe designer available on set and when clothing is not the focus of the photo shoot. These are the types of outfits and accessories that photographers recommend their clients/models to bring to their photo sessions.

1. Please keep in mind that often what you think looks great in everyday life might not look as great in photos.

2. The more outfits, shoes and accessories you can bring to the studio the better. Give your photographer more options and you will end up getting better images out of your photo shoot.

3. Definite no-no’s are cotton t-shirts or any cotton outfit if its colors are washed out and lost their vividness. Any lint or fuzz on it – please leave it at home.

4. If you are a working pro model or just an aspiring model who participates in photo shoots very often, find the time to get all your “photo” outfits out of your closet and take pictures of yourself wearing every piece (in the mirror), or just lay them out on your bed (better on you and in the mirror, though). Then upload them all into an album on the web, so you can always send the link to it to your photographer and they will pick what to bring to your shoot. Not only will you have to pack and carry less stuff, your photographer will be able to pre-visualize your looks in advance.

5. You will need some outfits even if you’re shooting nudes – implied nudes often look even sexier, so you might as well give it a chance, so do bring something.

6. Your outfits are there to be a part of your look, not to be the main part of the image, so keep that in mind.

7. WHAT LOOKS GOOD 

Anything that you can open up, drop off your shoulder, low-cut garments, etc.

8. PATTERNS & INTERESTING FABRICS

Outfits with simple geometric patterns often look great. Those patterns and figures however should not be overbearing, just clean and simple. Stripes, crinkled fabric, polka dots and so on.

9. LET’S TALK ABOUT STYLE

Everything that is not baggy will look flattering on a slender figure. Molded & trumpet gowns, pencil skirts, etc.

11. CASUAL & BOYISH

And the opposite style to add variety to your looks would be casual, boyish – that looks hot!

Especially if you add sleek boyish hairdo with side parting.

NOTE: Please don’t bring miniskirts. They almost always look vulgar in photos. Bring above the knee skirts, sale skirts, pencil skirts, to the knee skirts, maxi skirts, but not miniskirts.

13. VINTAGE & ORIGINAL GARMENTS

If you have some vintage garments, something original or  exclusively made by a fashion designer – that’s awesome! But since it’s very important for the photographer to be on the same page with you about such looks, just let him or her know and discuss details in advance.

14. KNITS & LACE

Anything knitted or with lace always looks cool! Just make sure the colours are not washed out and there’s no lint on the garment.

15. WET CLOTHES

If water is going to be involved in the shoot, make sure you bring clothing that can get wet without getting damaged. Anything that will stick to your skin when wet is great. And, well, don’t forget to bring a towel!

16. LINGERIE

This is simple – it must be sexy! Note that matching panties/bra sets are not sexy, they are too simple. Your photos most likely will look like a lingerie ad. Bring beautiful lace nightgowns, chemises, corsets, stockings, garter belts and all sorts of vintage and pseudo-vintage lingerie.

17. STOCKINGS, TIGHTS, LEGGINGS

Bring everything you have – they add that special touch to any look. Washed out colours are fine in some cases, but lint, little holes with runs – nah!)

18. PROPS & ACCESSORIES

Additional interesting props & accessories are always great! Look around, dig in your treasure chests in the attic. Any interesting glasses (regular or sunglasses), hats, ribbons, wigs, gloves, belts, masks, any neat shiny thingies – bring them all!

19. FABRIC TEXTURE

Recommend to your clients to pick tops, blouses and dresses that are made of silky, shiny, shimmering fabrics – such garments always look great in photos. They reflect light better than cotton fabrics, and help add depth and contrast to the images. Shadows look much darker than the lit parts of such outfits, so ditch your cotton top and bring the one that shines like a million stars.

Remember, that things that you would wear to work should stay home, and things that you would wear to a wild party should come to your photo shoot with you icon smile 21 Ideas For What To Wear To A Photo Shoot Omaha Image Productions

20. JEWELLERY

Bring all funky, chunky, elegant, vivid, shiny, original stuff you have: necklaces, bracelets, earrings, rings. Jewelry and accessories are very important and add so much to female portraits, make them sophisticated and eye-catching.

21.  SHOES! 

Make sure to chat with your photographer about what type of shoes you need to bring. If you’re shooting beauty, you might not need any, but definitely ask your photographer about it!
