LET’S TALK NECKLINES

NECKLINE.jpg

One of the most challenging parts of preparing for a headshot session is trying to decide what to wear. Overall there are no strict rules, but there are many factors to consider in order to ensure that you look your best on your new headshots.

Be sure to choose outfits that are appropriate for your type of work and industry position.  If you are unsure, then go more conservative with a classic neckline that’s flattering.

A V-neck elongate shorter necks. We want to create balance. If you feel insecure about your neck, go for a turtleneck like Diane Keaton. I personally love that look. It frames the face wonderfully.

Mixing up necklines will add variety to your shots, so try not to bring all of one style.
I love to see your collar bone and shoulders, so off-the-shoulder and sweetheart are my favorite necklines. Whatever you choose, try to make it more interesting than the basic crew neck.

Food for thought: Certain necklines can evoke different moods.

An off-the-shoulder top tends to appear vulnerable, while a square neck or high neck denotes power.
