Now that we’ve explored some ideal colors, let’s talk about the types of outfits that work well for fall family photos:
Coordinated But Not Matched: Choose a color scheme that complements each family member’s skin tone, and coordinate outfits without everyone wearing the exact same thing. You don’t want to look matchy, matchy or like twins but rather that you have styled everyone in a similar vibe.
Layering: Fall weather can be unpredictable, so layering is key. Sweaters, scarves, vests, and cardigans not only keep you warm but also add depth and texture to your photos and make you look like you stepped out of a catalog.
Textures and Patterns: Incorporate different textures (such as chunky knit, suede, or plaid) and subtle patterns to add visual interest to your outfits without being too distracting. Have one person in your family in a printed pattern and use that to tie the colors and style to everyone else. Pro tip : Trip to avoid having more than 1-2 people in a pattern to avoid your outfits being too busy on camera.
Accessories: Don’t forget about accessories! Hats, scarves, and statement jewelry are fun ways to add personality to simple, classic looks.
