  1. Choose outfits that are classic and won’t become quickly outdated.

  2. Wear a color that is contrasting and flattering to your skin tone.  Choose darker or mid-tone colors because they tend to put more emphasis on your face and eyes. 

  3. Avoid lighter colors or those that are too similar to your skin tone because they tend to wash you out.

  4. Avoid bold plaids, and patterns like floral prints, checkers, polka dots, and stripes. These patterns can detract from your face and make the photo too busy. 

  5. Choose jewelry wisely to enhance and fine tune your outfit. Jewelry adds a complementary accent to your outfit, and draws attention to your face.  If jewelry is not worn, your photo may look unfinished, plain and boring.

  6. The size of your earrings should be no less than the pupil of your eye and should not be too bold, flashy or dangly as to distract from your face.

  7. Choose outfits with modest necklines and preferably sleeves. Too much skin can detract from your desired professional look.

  8. Hair should be cut and styled in a flattering style.  

  9. Makeup should be moderately applied. 

  10. Make sure clothes are wrinkle free and fit properly.
