Experiment With Different Styles 


A great tip when choosing your outfits is to experiment with different styles. Don’t be afraid to mix and match different pieces together or layer items such as scarves or jackets over lingerie sets. Try on different combinations until you find something that suits your taste and helps capture the look and feel of the type of photos you want to achieve. And don’t forget accessories! A statement necklace or headband can add just enough detail to make any outfit stand out.

Coordinate Colors and Textures for Dynamic Photos


When selecting clothing for your boudoir photoshoot, try picking colors and textures that complement each other well. Choosing coordinating colors will give your photos an eye-catching dynamic quality. 


For example, if wearing lingerie sets in black and white seems too plain for you, then try mixing various shades of gray for a unique twist on classic neutrals. You can also add texture with lace details or velvet accents for interest!
