Rich & Deep Colors
Solids are better than Patterns. Logos or large phrases on shirts are typically a no-no... Remember that poorly selected clothing can take away from pictures. The right selection is just as important as posing, light, and location. So what should we wear? Executive director at Pantone Color Institute, Lee Eiseman, states "the best colors are deep reds, teals/turquoises, and other shades in the blue-green family (the most universally flattering family of all colors). Rich and deeper greens, purples, and blue are all good. If a neutral is preferred, gray is the best, even better than black. Earthy and warm browns are good. Black and white together can offer too much contrast as well. Mid-tone or more vibrant rose-pink tones and corals are flattering."
Just scrolling through my Instagram feed, I immediately see a pattern - Blue... That has been BY FAR the most popular color selection and most flattering amongst my clients.
Below are a few other looks that are just as flattering - Black & Neutral. Let's take a look:
