What to Wear to a Corporate Headshot

Mar 15, 2018

It’s been said that clothes make the man, and research shows that to be true. What we wear affects how others perceive us, and even how we perceive ourselves. Aris Affairs Photography suggests what to wear for a corporate headshots in Prescott.

Men in Suits: When choosing a suit for your professional headshot, pick one that fits you well and doesn’t bunch up when you button it or sit down. Choose a classic dark color like navy blue or gray, and a shirt and tie that match well with each other and the suit.

Men’s Shirts: Avoid bold patterns or colors as they are distracting. Herringbone patterns and tight grids can distort the photographic image. If you’re not wearing a tie, choose a non-white shirt for best results. Button-down shirts look better under a jacket or sweater. Darker shirts should have some detail so it doesn’t appear as a head floating on a boxy shirt. If you unbutton a button or two, be sure no undershirt shows.

Neckties: The shade of your tie should fall between the color of the suit and the shirt: a light shirt, dark suit, and tie color somewhere between the two. The tie should not be too reflective or shiny.

Women in Suits: Choose a classic look or business-oriented outfit that doesn’t reveal what decade it’s from in your photo. Avoid bold, distracting patterns and colors, the exception being where a small part of the pattern shows beneath a blazer or sweater to give a pop of color. Professional headshots look better without bare arms, however, if you choose a sleeveless blouse or dress, take a blazer or sweater along to give yourself more options.

Colors and Collars: Patterns such as herringbone or tight grids cause camera distortion and should be avoided. Thin stripes are acceptable. Stark white should only be worn under a jacket or cardigan, and v-necks generally look best. Don’t choose a neckline that is too high or too low; turtlenecks tend to make people look like they have no neck, and no cleavage should show.

Jewelry: Keep it small, classic and not too flashy or reflective. Earrings should dangle one inch or less from your earlobe.

Now that you’re ready for your headshot, we look forward to helping you establish the professional image you’ve been looking for. For professional headshots in the Prescott area, contact Aris Affairs Photography at 928-642-4049 to make an appointment.
