Tip #1 : Wear colors in your season
Did you know that you are a certain color season? Yup! You're either a winter, spring, summer, or fall. It's all based on your color of hair, skin tone, and eye color. When you wear colors that are in your color season palette, it's super flattering on you! On the contrary, if you wear colors that aren't in your season...well, you could look pale, tired, and just plain blah.
You can take a fun Color Quiz to find out which season you are.
Then, once you find out which season you are, choose the jeweled and bright colors in your color season palette. These types of colors look the best on video. Examples of jeweled colors are navy, emerald green, burgundy—those rich colors. Bright colors, like turquoise and fuchsia also look good on video.
As an example, I'm a winter. Here are some photos comparing the differences between colors that are in my season and those that aren't:
A quick tip for the men out there, if you’re wearing a suit on camera, navy suits definitely look handsomely stunning. If you need to wear gray, black or khaki colored suits, make sure you wear a colored shirt or tie that falls within your color season. This helps you look more alive and great on camera!

Tip #2 Wear Solid Colors
Wearing solid colors not only looks great but it will also help you stand out in the video. Try to avoid patterns and shirts with designs and text on them. It over complicates the shot because, really, your goal is to pop in the video as the center of attention. Make sure to wear a different color from the background. If you’re not the one planning the film shoot, make sure and find out what the background is going to be so you can wear the right thing.
Tip #3: Wear fitted clothing
Okay, I’m not talking about skin tight clothes. (Although if you want to and have the body for it, go for it!) What I’m talking about is wearing fitted clothing so they don’t hang, sag, bag or stick out and away from your body. In other words, you don’t want to look frumpy.
Here’s a fun little hack. You can use clothes pins to make your clothes more fitted. Like this top I'm wearing in the photo below. I absolutely love the color, but this looser style isn’t very flattering.
Let’s pin it in the back...
And, voila, so much better, right?
Before you push record, you also want to make sure your clothes are straight and that nothing is showing that you don’t want to be seen. Men, straighten that necktie. And, women, remember to tuck in those straps.
Tip #4 You can accentuate your look with jewelry
I love statement pieces because they look great on camera and you can actually see it as opposed to pendant necklaces that are small and, seriously, they seem to always be in a crooked position. The main thing here is that you don’t want it to be distracting, so avoid jewelry that makes sounds when you move, like the clanking of bracelets. My favorite jewelry to wear on video are statement earrings!
