Plaid Perfection: How to Wear Plaid for a Photo Shoot

We know you love your plaids, and so do we. But let's be real, sometimes going all-out plaid for the whole family can be a bit overwhelming in photos. Fear not, we're here with some style tips to help you wear plaids tastefully for your next photo shoot with Kate Buckles Photography.

  1. Mix and Match: Instead of going all-in with plaid, mix it up! Choose one statement plaid piece – maybe a stylish shirt or a cute skirt – and pair it with solid colors or subtle patterns. This way, your plaid becomes the star, and the rest of the outfit plays a supporting role, creating a balanced and visually appealing look.

  2. Neutral Companions: Opt for neutral tones to complement your plaid. Earthy colors like beige, gray, or denim can tone down the boldness of plaids and bring out the delicate moments in your photos. Neutral tones also allow the focus to be on the joy and laughter captured in each shot.

  3. Accessorize Wisely: Add a touch of flair with well-chosen accessories. A simple, solid-colored scarf or a classic leather jacket can elevate your plaid ensemble without overshadowing it. Accessories are a fantastic way to bring personality to your photos while maintaining a stylish balance.

  4. Coordinate, Don't Match: If you're planning a family or group shoot, coordinate your outfits without going for the matchy-matchy look. Choose a color palette that complements your plaid choice and encourage others to do the same. This creates a cohesive look without everyone donning the exact same pattern.

  5. Layering Magic: Layering is the secret sauce to a well-styled plaid outfit. A denim jacket, a stylish vest, or a cozy cardigan can add depth and texture to your look. Plus, layering provides opportunities for candid, laughter-filled moments as you play around with your outfits during the shoot.

  6. Consider the Setting: Think about the location of your shoot. If you're surrounded by vibrant nature, choose a plaid that complements the scenery. For urban settings, opt for a more modern, chic plaid look. Matching your outfit to the surroundings ensures that your delicate moments are harmoniously captured.

Remember, the key is to let your personality shine through while maintaining a sense of style. With these tips, you'll not only look fantastic but also create a backdrop that perfectly captures the joy and laughter that make your photos truly special. Click HERE to book!
