Style Guide

These styles are not typical senior portraits outfits.

These couture looks elevate and create fashion-forward designer styles to enhance this unique photo experience.

A 2022-23 fashion trend.

Ignore the rules of fashion, and definitely avoid the matched set.

Instead blend together an outfit from printed pieces to create a different, fun, and artistic ensemble.

This is not a clown outfit, but a legit style that bends the fashion rules.

This InStyle article explains "HOW TO" mix prints successfully.

Mix Prints Style Board

Take a traditional goth outfit (short article about elements of a great goth outfit), and add a pop of color.

Finish off with embellishments of leather and mixed metal jewelry.

Really add to the look with temporary tattoos (available through Amazon).

This style is inspired by the TikTok fashion icon Sammi Jefcoate.

She does a great job of layering so that certain parts of her outfit peak out. Watch some of her summer, spring, and winter videos for inspiration.

Even though she is female and likes the feminine style, it is possible to take the same concept and make it masculine.

Do not go with an all-black outfit.

Brit Color Pop Goth Style Board

Straight from 2023 British Vogue runway shows, this look is relaxed business attire sans the shirt.

In essence, the style is a suit, in all different varieties.

For the men, no shirt -- though suspenders could be a nice touch.

For the women, a bralette, corset or cami.

For both, the jacket provides coverage for modesty.

The style of suit is up to your preference and style.

  • loose-fitting & slouchy
  • slim-fit or snatched waist
  • double-breasted
  • pin-stripe, soft-tone, or bright color
  • Bermuda shorts, capri, wide-leg, or slim-fit leg

Dress shoes, combat boots, or high-heeled sandals would all be appropriate for this look.

Finish off the look with a few choice pieces of jewelry, neck scarf, beret, or sunglasses, and a handbag or briefcase/satchel.

Sans the Shirt Style Board

British GQ is raving about the color purple.

Specifically, the Pantone color of Violet Meadow, hex code #765686.

For this look, you have free reign to create an amazing outfit in shades of Violet Meadow.

Two rules:

  • Be adventurous with your styling.
  • Avoid clashing purples.

After that, everything is up to you.

Violet Meadow Style Board

For this style, we want to collaborate with you --> the rep who is wearing the outfit!

If you book with your local OneCollective photographer 6 weeks prior to the photo event, you and the other registered reps design the look.

You submit your short style description with inspirational images, and all the reps and photographers who are registered for the event vote.

The most favorite style fills the last look.

Complete this form to submit your ideas. You can submit more than one.
