WHAT TO WEAR: Chic Family Photos

Here we are at the cusp of Fall. Cooler temps, Friday night lights, and must we not forget- family photos for holiday greetings. Whilst conceiving the perfect setting and attire for family portraits, I immediately head to publications that ooze sophistication and class for inspiration. Those of which are typically Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, even Architectural Digest. Whether you imagine your family donning elegant ensembles of satin and velvet or prefer something more relaxed, there will be inspiration for both. Explore with me several different ideas to ensure your family photos don't become an over-styled, chintzy snapshot, but family heirlooms you will treasure from here forward.

Where to begin... What is your vibe? Causal/Dressy? Tailored/ Natural? Feminine/ Avant Garde? Next, choose your color palette. If classic is the goal, choose tonal outfits with contrasting patterns and textures. Imagine creams, beiges, and whites or greys and blues. If you prefer to make a statement, choose colors that are high-contrast, like black or navy and white, perhaps even a pop of red.

 

NEXT.. MIX TEXTURES, but don't get crazy with prints {and wear something that covers your knees--trust me..}. Mix unexpected materials like satin and cable knit or pair denim with gauzy ethereal materials like Embroidered Cotton or Guipure lace. The juxtaposition of masculine and feminine details are what give images the "WOW" factor. It can be overwhelming putting together outfits for the entire family. We suggest choosing your outfit first. Keep scrolling to see our staff picks for the picture perfect look.
