What should I wear for a headshot?

Dressing For a Headshot

When getting your headshots taken, keep your clothes simple, avoiding logos or loud colors and prints. Since the photo will be black and white, black and white clothing may appear too bold. Keep jewelry to a minimum, and makeup simple. Style your hair as you would normally. Avoid completely new ensembles or very trendy outfits as styles change. Wear something nice that you will appear comfortable in. Make sure that collars and necklines frame your face well.

Headshots are moving away from black and white. Most headshots are now shot in color. Also iron your clothes the night before.
