As if it wasn't challenging enough for us to select an everyday outfit seven times a week, now you've gotta select several special outfits that are stylish and convey your personality in an attractive, yet timeless manner.
Forget how you want to be remembered in your yearbook, better yet the real question is: How do you wanna FEEL when looking back on the memories that your Senior portraits will usher in?
The best decisions take time and a little know-how. Same is true with your Senior session wardrobe. In addition to tackling full ensembles, there are all sorts of little odds & ends you KNOW you'll need to put on your mental checklist (yes, the chipped mani & pedi go on that list too).
The things you write down or read are the things you remember best. We've gathered together some very helpful pointers in our LKP SENIORS digital magazine for you.
Between your mom reminding you to be sure your clothes are laundered, ironed/steamed (yes, please bring clean, wrinkle-free clothes) and our conveniently helpful tips, you should be all set & ready for your closeup!
Some of the items you need MAY be at the mall or a boutique. However, they may also be in an attic trunk, at a vintage shop or in the back of a friend's closet. Get creative and just be you!
Remember the more classic your selections, the more timeless your images in the end. And it always helps to choose some standard wardrobe essentials (they are crucial pieces), and then pop your personality in with HOW you wear them or which shoes you pair with them, or what accessories you layer on for a taste of HERE & NOW & YOU!
(For instance, here's a tip: Take Essie's pale shade of polish in 'Ballet Slippers.' It's classic & timeless + goes with EVERYTHING. No lie, even the Queen of England will wear nothing else on her nails!)
For further help phone a friend, ask parents for their opinions, or feel free to ask us for assistance in planning the perfect Senior session attire. You never know, WE might even have the perfect piece stashed in the LatchKey Style Closet in our office that will complete your little number. We want you to not only look good, but FEEL incredible on the day of your session. 💛
