Going on a trip with your friends and want to take one of those insta-famous photos that are color coordinated and just seem like everything? Here are some quick tips to get that perfect insta-colored group shot.
Is there a specific location you are planning on taking these photos? Check out Pinterest and IG for great spots in your choice city and see if there are any particular colors or color combinations that stick out.
Select a color scheme
Are you sticking to one solid color, a color family or do you want to drive a color blocking theme? Decide based on the setting, which color scheme will work best and which colors are really going to have y'all flexin’ on your complexion.
Spread the message
Hit up your friends and tell them the game plan. Give them the color options and theme, and plenty of time to find the right fit to really set it off.
Look at the options together
Once you are together at your destination, look at everyone’s options. Is there a fit that’s cute but doesn’t necessarily fit the mold? Try swapping different pieces of clothes with your friends to find other outfit possibilities so that there isn’t one sore thumb sticking out.
Hit the streets and as Beyoncé or the Queens would say “Slay”: Be unapologetic (but not completely disruptive) with your photos. Be sure there’s great lighting and everyone has their poses ready to go.
Remember that just because you’re rocking the same color doesn’t mean you have to wear the same shapes and styles. When everyone is wearing an outfit that is quintessentially them the more confident and powerful the photos turn out!
