1. For a slimmer look, form fitting is definitely best! Look for figure-hugging clothes. Avoid blousy or boxy tops as they will make you look bigger on camera.

2. Think textures. Textures like lace, ruffles, and ruching add visual interest without overwhelming. Look for textured tops in solid colors. Avoid patterns as they may detract from your face.

3. Bring a variety of colors-- something light (ivory, white, pastel), something dark (black, charcoal gray, navy), something with a pop of color (something that brings out your eyes is best.)

4. Look for layers. Add a form-fitting jacket or slim fit knit cardigan to cover and slim arms.

5. Consider longer sleeves. 3/4 length and long sleeves are universally flattering and slimming. Sleeveless is great on toned arms or pair with layers (see above) to slim arms. Avoid cap sleeves.

6. Bring coordinating bottoms. Bring pants or skirts that match your favorite tops; that way if your knee or hip is in the frame, you'll be stylishly covered. 

7. Look for flattering necklines. Scoop, cowl neck, or v-neck are great options. Avoid high neck tops as they may make your neck look cut off in pictures.

8. Select jewelry that speaks to your style. Subtle? or bold? You choose.

9. Come with clean, manicured nails. Hands come into the frame a lot with portraits. Neutral colors, simple buff, or French manicure are recommended.

10. Bring appropriate undergarments. For example, strapless bras so your straps don't show, seamless panties and shapewear in appropriate colors.

1. For a slimmer look, opt for slim-fit shirts and jackets.

2. Keep patterns to a minimum. Print ties and pin stripes are ok.

3. Look for layers. Add a form-fitting jacket or V-neck sweater to vary your look.

4. Bring a variety of colors. Something light. Something dark. A pop of color to bring out your eyes.

5. Long sleeves are always preferred over short sleeves for a clean, polished look. Prefer casual? Rolled sleeves do the trick!

6. A collared shirt and suit is a must for stylish professionals.

7. Bring coordinating bottoms. Many shots are 3/4 in length.

8. Bring coordinating shoes and socks. Footwear may come into frame with seated poses.

9. Prepare your favorite accessories. Watches, cufflinks, glasses, and pocket squares should be clean and presentable.

10. Come with clean, manicured nails. Hands come into frame a lot, so make sure yours are camera ready.
