Do you ever wonder just how it is possible that celebrities always look so perfect in their photos? Even paparazzi have to lurk for hours in hopes of taking that one not-so-flattering photo since celebs always look so good. How do they do that? Number one: they have a team of experts whose job is to style and prep them every time they step out of the house. Number two: they have picked up a few useful tricks to always look good on photos, and the right clothes are at the very top of that list.
Regardless of the occasion, black clothes will make you look stylish beyond measure. Men in tuxedoes and black suits, or jeans paired with black shirts, and girls in their eponymous little black dress – trends which never go out of style. Not only is black an elegant colour, but it also looks amazing in photographs. It slims you down and accentuates the colour of your skin.
What is more, any accessory paired up with black clothes pops out even more than usual, since black emphasizes other colours wonderfully.
Oversized sweaters are amazing: they make girls look delicate and feel protected at the same time. They can easily be paired with skinny jeans and comfy boots in order to hint at nicely shaped legs, but still cover up a bloated stomach (yes, sadly there is such thing as too much pumpkin spice latte). Sweaters are great because both men and women can wear one item and rock two completely different looks.
However, while girls look sweet in an oversized piece, boys should make sure their sweater fits well. If you wear one that is too tight, you will look uncomfortable and appear bigger than you really are. All in all, nice sweaters compliment practically every frame and make you look great in photos.
Boys and girls, pay attention: shirts can make all the difference between a perfect photo and an awkward, unflattering one. Not only are they the best choice for a popular smart casual style for both sexes, but in a blink of an eye they can be turned into a playful and casual item if need be.
Undo the first button or two to elongate your neck, ladies, and roll up your sleeves to show off those muscular forearms and elegant watches and bracelets, boys. These useful tricks will make you look relaxed and graceful in selfies and photos taken by a photographer or a friend.
While you will most certainly not wear an unbuttoned coat when it’s raining or snowing outside, wearing it right will make you look like a celebrity in a blink of an eye. This season it’s all about beige coats Kim K loves so much, but which in return require that the rest of your outfit be minimalistic and monochromatic.
Men usually wear a loose scarf around their neck which both looks great and keeps them warm. Unbuttoned coats also photograph beautifully and add an air of mystery and elegance to any look. Go full celebrity-mode by adding a pair of big, dark sunglasses and some leather gloves; you will look like you’re on your way to a red carpet event.
Remember, you usually look best when you’re feeling comfortable and relaxed. Choose to wear your favourite colours and natural materials as often as you can, because it will greatly boost your confidence. Also, try to find your own style which will reflect who you really are – this way, you will be fashionable but more than that, your confidence and radiant smile will be noticeable on every single photo.
