OK I’m struggling with what to wear on my engagement photos..we’re doing dressy and HOPING for snow. I don’t mind being cold for a few pictures so the short/long sleeve thing isn’t an issue. Our shoot is the 26th so I need to get this pinned down ASAP
I do have red hair and pale skin so I’m worried the black might wash me out but I’m not willing to totally rule it out yet.
If the dress is shorter (not mid length) I will be wearing tights and boots. If not probably just a nice heel.
Body type is small frame, short torso, long legs.
Halp mehhhhh. I’m so stuck.
1. Purple dress.
2. Black dress with brown belt.
3. Green lace
5. Black with brown dots.
6. Black with white collar.
7. Green with wite dots.

I think the green dress will look great with your hair, and skin.

@Jamieg: haha which green? only reservation I have about green is that its always the “go to” color for redheads and I’m wondering if I should go a little more outside the box.
im really overthinking everything at this point -_-

I think both the purple and green with white dots would be great given your physical description! And if there was snow on the ground, those colors would pop!
What are you thinking of doing on your lips? I think a deep pinkish red would be amazing with either dress!

I love both the purple and the green lace. I honestly wouldn’t consider any of the others for e-pics. I voted for the purple, because I think it’s more classic and elegant.

@rosegoldie: yeah it’s the dead of winter here in PA so if we don’t have snow it’s going to be dead forest lol so I def think a pop of color would help that.
If i do the purple I would probably go a deeper color on the lip ..green I might stick to a natural pink.

@Brielle: I feel that way about the purple too. Love that it’s structured. Do you think tights with boots for that dress or hose with a nice heel?

I would stay away from black with pale skin. I had some family recently do pictures and they all wore black. Her kids looked great, they have olive skin tone, where as she with pale skin, the black was too harsh on her skin, not very flattering.

@smarie13: yeah I have nightmares about my skin matching the snow in pictures LMAO

Definitely the purple! It’ll be so striking and classic against the white snow. I wanted to vote for the floral dress, too, because I think it makes such a great statement (blooming in winter!) but the purple is my top pick, hahah.

@Laurenskii: I like the green lacey one. And I DEFINITELY wouldn’t worry about wearing green being too obvious for a redhead. When the pictures turn out pretty, people aren’t going to be like well duh, it’s because she’s wearing green with red hair….
the only one I think definitely not to is the floral. It goes a step above trendy to where it’ll look dated like…. 5 months from now lol.
Second fave is the purple one, although all I can see on that one is that it gives the model a hip-py appearance so you may feel it gives you more volume on your lower half than you would like. But maybe you would like it? I dunno lol

@Brielle: +1 I really like the purple (the shape/cut of the dress is great) and the green lace. Can you do an outfit change in between? I find the others (especially the ones with Peter Pan collars) a bit childish, to be honest.

@Laurenskii: I love the green lace but I would vote for the purple. It’s classic and will look lovely for years to come!

@peonyinparis: I like the collar but I think child/nun on it too lol
@Andthepupmakes3: I don’t think I’d mind the extra hip since I have none HA!
@letigre: ONLY thing I’m worried about with the purple is it’s a little low cut.
