1. Coordinate colors and styles but don’t match! Guys, make sure you match the overall feel of your girl’s outfit. If she’s wearing a dress, make yourself look a little nicer. If she’s rocking some jeans and boots, then funk yourself up with a snazzy tie and nice leather shoes.

2.  Find the perfect balance of color and pattern. Don’t over do it with patterns, but sometimes all solid can be a bit boring as well.

3. Jazz up your outfit with a cute pair of heels, funky necklace or nice bag. (if you plan on wearing heels, also bring some comfortable slip-ons for walking around.

4. Variety is the spice of life! It is always best to bring a few different outfits so you can change up the photos.

5. Most importantly: Be comfortable and have fun with it!
