Senior Portrait Outfit Tips For Guys

  • Avoid slogans and logos, they look dated (and might not be allowed anyway!)
  • Neutral colors and navy are timeless and look good on just about everyone!
  • Make sure your clothes fit right. I know this sounds silly, but it’s important. If you aren’t sure, ask someone!
  • If you want to look slimmer, wear darker colors, avoid horizontal stripes, and opt for layers.
  • Dress up and down. Bring one classy outfit (for mom and grandma) and one casual. You might be surprised which on you like best!
