what to wear for senior pictures – picnic fashion trend
Posted on April 25, 2012 by Jen Basford
we are SO excited to get started on our 2013 seniors this year! and to help you get ready, we’re bringing you the hottest upcoming 2012 fashion trends to show you what to wear for your senior portraits at 3 girls photography.
our first 2012 fashion trend is picnic. this is a REALLY fun trend for spring and summer because it does a great job at telling a story with fashion. the colors, fabrics, and silhouettes capture the warmth of the sun and new beginnings, which gives your senior portraits a fun, playful, and carefree feel to them. picnic is a very simple, country feel that is both feminine and ladylike for girls, and youthful and masculine for guys.
the dominant color in Picnic is cherry red – but you’ll also see a lot of white, french blue, mint, grassy green and periwinkle. Some really great prints to bring to your senior session are gingham, plaid, checks, florals, handkerchief prints, extra large floral patterns, and polka dots. this trend is VERY easy to integrate into your spring and summer wardrobe for senior portraits!
guys will love the throwback to a past era with this look. you’ll see softer colors, plaids, neutral jackets, longer shorts, polo shirts, chinos, denim shirts with bow ties, colored pants, striped or check camp shirts, and preppy shoes.
great places to purchase picnic theme clothes are the Gap, forever 21, abercrombie, H&M, anthropologie, francesca’s, and gil’s. you’ll find a lot of this trend woven throughout many of your favorite stores’ spring and summer lines!
it’s never too early to start shopping for your senior portraits at 3 girls photography. it’s all about the experience – and it only happens once in a lifetime.
peace and popsicles!
