Let’s talk photos. I get a lot of inquiries relating to pictures, so today I’m going to fill you all in with a little tip: When it comes to taking great fashion pictures, not all trends are created equal. Some styles are made for photographs, while others look best in real life or in motion. Think of how often you’ll see a celebrity’s outfit online and feel underwhelmed by the pictures, only to get your life once a video or gif surfaces of their entrance. To get the most out of an outfit, it’s best to know which medium can best capture the look.
My challenge to you is to incorporate the 3 photogenic trends below into your next few Instagram pictures and see how they improve your feed. The best part is they are all accessories, so they’re easy to obtain if you don’t already own them.
