The snow is starting to melt, and temperatures are beginning to rise. With spring on its way, it's time we begin to take a look at our wardrobe. Replacing bulky sweaters, wool coats and dark colours with lighter colours and fabrics along with more fitted silhouettes.
When we have clients booking their corporate portraits they often ask what to wear. Here is our best guide for Spring 2020 to ensure you are on-trend and eye-catching!
Jewel tones and pastels are big for spring. Pants suits or skirt suit coordinates in bright popping colours. Ankle crop pants are a big trend and would pair perfectly with neutral-toned shoes.
Lights neutrals still have a place in our closets, light greys are favourable to pair with a coloured blouse for a bright pop.
If you want to update your corporate portrait for spring, we suggest a colour backdrop with basic or gradient lighting that contrasts with your outfit.
Keeping in mind bright pops of colour, we suggest solids or floral prints to bring the feeling of spring inside, even if the heat or ac is on full blast.
Simple silhouettes and light blue also lend themselves to a more airy feel. A simple tee would fit in nicely for casual Fridays.
If you want to sport vibrant prints or a more casual feel for your business portrait, we suggest choosing a white backdrop or outdoor options. In Downtown Toronto, most streets have a neutral and interesting background to help you stand out for your best portrait.
Light Neutrals are in for spring. They look clean, simple, and free of the heaviness of winter wear.
Looking for something a bit different, give chambray a shot. Chambray suiting offers a simple but bod alternative.
If you want to update your business portrait, we suggest you opt for a bold background, think blues, greens or grey. You want to stand out and draw the eye into your portrait.
We suggest a slim fit, printed and pastel button-up paired with comfortable chinos for a more casual look.
We suggest an outdoor portrait on a nice sunny day to update your corporate portrait or LinkedIn headshot with a more casual vibe. We may not have leaves on the trees yet, but that doesn't stop a bright sunny sky from creating the perfect backdrop. Alternately if your office is in downtown Toronto with a city view, an in-office business portrait against a window will give your portrait life.
