You can’t decide what to wear for your LinkedIn Headshots in London.

You hate having your photograph taken anyway and you only want to do this once.

I am with you!

I help you achieve multiple looks from your LinkedIn Headshot in London by supporting your posing, facial expressions, moods, and your wardrobe choices!

It’s also why every digital image your purchase comes in both colour and black and white. You’ll instantly have two different looks from one image. I also provide the digital image in multiple formats ready to upload to LinkedIn, the web or social.

Choosing your clothes carefully can help make sure you’ll want to use these photographs years from now.

Here’s the advice I give every client when we talk about what to wear for your LinkedIn Headshots in London.

1. Start with the clothes you love.

Do you have a work outfit that makes you feel good? It fits you well and you feel at your best when you’re wearing it? Start there! If you don’t love the clothes, you’ll hate the photograph.

2. Avoid busy patterns.

Remembering that fashion trends change all the time, I recommend avoiding busy patterns for your LinkedIn headshot in London. Try tops with only one colour. Bring a second outfit if the work outfit you love the most has a busy pattern.

It’s always better to avoid wearing tops with other company logos, though I can remove a logo on a shirt in post-production.

3. What do you want the viewer to think?

Who’s looking at the profile? Are you aspiring to move forward in your career?

Are you going for open and friendly? Professional and trustworthy?

Your choice of clothes can help suggest these things to your audience.

Maybe these LinkedIn headshots will be used in more places, like your slack work channel, conferences or company website.

You may want to try a casual and a formal look so bringing a suit jacket to your LinkedIn headshot in London can quickly take you from casual to traditional in an effortless way.

4. Colours that work well for you.

Think about colours that suit you. Do you love deep blue tones, earth tones, neutrals, pastels or vibrant colours? What’s the colour of the outfit that always gets a compliment from other people?

Dark colours are slimming, while a pop of colour can help your photograph stand out. I’ll support these choices by thinking about the mood of your session and the backgrounds that will compliment your wardrobe.

5. Accessories.

I’m going to contradict myself in this recommendation because both of the following ideas have worked for clients in the past.

Here’s one view on accessories.  Wear zero, or simple and small jewellery. This will make sure that when people look at your LinkedIn headshot they focus on your eyes and the connection you are making with them (the magic we create in the studio).

The second view is that a big statement piece can bring a pop of personality and colour into the photograph.

Either way, make sure you love the jewellery, or that it has sentimental value so that you’ll want to use these photographs for years to come.

6. The shoes.

It’s a headshot, you don’t need to care about the shoes! Well, maybe you do. My advice on shoes falls into two camps when the shoes aren’t going to be in the photograph.

Option 1: Wear comfy shoes! When was the last time you put on professional shoes since 2020 anyway!

Option 2: Wear shoes that make you feel like you can take on the world. I’ve met people who have these shoes and when they put them on, they immediately feel confident and ready for their photoshoot. I’m still looking for mine btw!

7. Bras and other underwear.

You may need to bring a few different bras to pair with your outfits. Make sure they are the right colour and look good with the top. For any other underwear, make sure it’s comfy and discreet.

8. If in doubt.

Bring it.

I recommend at least three different tops and a suit jacket to all my clients.
