Wardrobe Inspo for Your Picture-Perfect Winter Photo Session
Although it may be getting colder, winter can be a wonderful time for a photo session. Whether you’re capturing family memories, celebrating love as a couple or embracing the magic of maternity, JENNAKPHOTOS is here with some tips to help you select the perfect winter wardrobe for your session:
Embrace winter colors
Swap out the warm earthy tones of fall for a winter color palette. Think cool blues, icy grays, deep burgundies, and rich emeralds. These colors evoke the beauty of the winter season and create a striking contrast against snowy backgrounds.
And don't shy away from neutrals either! Creams, whites, and soft pastels can create an elegant and timeless look in winter settings.
Play with patterns & fabrics
Incorporate plaid, floral, stripes, sparkles or corduroy to add texture and exude winter chic! This is also a fun way to showcase your personal style.
Cozy textures and fabrics will keep you warm and have you looking seasonally stylish. Embrace chunky knits, faux fur accents, velvet, and wool. These fabrics add depth and visual interest to your outfits while providing warmth when the temperatures drop.
Accessorize for winter charm
Enhance your overall look and capture the essence of the season with scarves, beanies, hats, bow or boots. Don't forget about statement jewelry or a touch of sparkle to add a festive feel to your photos.
Embrace your favorite winter pieces
If you have favorite winter pieces in your wardrobe that make you feel confident and comfortable, don't hesitate to wear them for your photo session. Whether it's a cozy sweater, a fashionable pair of boots, or a beloved plaid shirt, these items can help showcase your personal style and allow you to feel your authentic self.
If you're looking to refresh your fall wardrobe, there are plenty of great, affordable options available. Stores like Old Navy, Target, Gap, Baltic Barn and H&M offer a wide selection of stylish outfits for the entire family. For children's outfits, Carter's and The Children's Place provide adorable and age-appropriate options. And if you're short on time or seeking convenience, Amazon is a go-to for last-minute outfits with easy returns.
When planning outfits for your photo session, remember that coordination is key. Your goal is a cohesive look, but you don’t need (or necessarily want) everyone to match perfectly.
Winter weather can sometimes be super chilly (and sometimes even warm!), so be prepared for varying temperatures. Dress appropriately by layering up for colder days or to have a plan B outfit in case of drastic weather changes.
The number one rule is to dress comfortably so you (and your loved ones) are not distracted thinking about your clothes!
