What to Wear for Fall Family Photos: 5 Stylish Outfit Ideas
We blinked and it’s full-on fall! With the changing leaves and beautiful sunsets, the scenery is prime time for an outdoor photo session. And that means you’ll need a great outfit. Luckily, we’ve got plenty of fall family photo outfit inspiration.
When selecting your look, keep a few guidelines in mind. First, choose something you’re comfortable in. It seems obvious, but stay away from silhouettes, colors or heel heights that may throw you off your game. You want to feel (and look!) like yourself, as that ease will translate through to the photos.
Second, pick a foundational color (often a neutral) that will tie in everyone’s outfits without being too matchy-matchy (let’s keep that trend in the ‘90s). And third, keep your color scheme simple— two or three shades per person (or one small print or pattern) is ideal to ensure the outfits are cohesive rather than distracting.
Read on for five great fall family photo outfits styled by the EVEREVE pros.
1. A Plaid Sweater + Straight-Leg Jeans
Of course we had to start with a plaid sweater—it’s quintessentially fall! The beauty of plaid is that it offers a few colors to tie back into your family’s looks. We love this large buffalo check in neutral tones— it’s soft, seasonal and something you’ll continue to wear well into winter.
For a look that captures the current trends, you can’t go past the of-the-moment shacket. We offer the piece in a variety of colors, but recommend sticking to a more neutral option for photos since the shacket is a statement in itself. As it often has a relaxed fit, pair the shacket with slimming silhouettes such as a dress, skinny jeans or vegan leather leggings.
3. A Gorgeous Blouse + Straight-Leg Jeans + Lug Sole Boots
Blending comfort and style, a beautiful blouse is sophisticated, chic and easy to dress up or down. Keep your pick within fall’s warm color palette and you’ll have an ensemble that’s easy to coordinate with the rest of your family.
4. A Turtleneck Sweater + Skinny Jeans + Knee-High Boots
The turtleneck and relaxed tunic length make this sweater feel fresh, especially when paired with tall boots. The brown suede boots are an elevated option that will complement other rich hues such as pine green or burgundy red.
If you’re one to play up accessories, reach for a cool felt hat. It instantly transforms any look, giving you just the right amount of edge. But be sure to wear it a few times before the shoot— you want to feel comfortable and confident in it.
Embrace the chaos! Getting children, husbands and pets to all happily participate in photos (at exactly the same time) can be a challenge, so don’t sweat each and every shot. It’s often the candid images that capture personality and sweet moments in time, and end up being the ones you’ll look back at and cherish the most. Have fun!
