Gah somebody with fashion sense help me out!

so i dont know anymore about all 4 of us (me and my 3 girls) wearing matching cream sweaters/jeans for our holiday pics. A.) they're super hard to find and B.) i think the matching theme might be too boring.

but what can i do as far as color coordination for 4 people? i was thinking, have two of them wear a solid color dress (one red, one silver or black maybe) and the other in a multi colored plaid dress. or some kind of outfit where they all have the same colors on (red and black for instance) but not the EXACT same outfit, like one of them wearing a red sweater/black pants or skirt and the other wearing a dress with red and black in it.

but then what would i wear? granted im only going to be in one or two of them shots but still i want it to all tie in together.

  • maybe i can still go with the white sweater/jeans for me because no matter what they wear it'll still match?

  • First, I would find the plaid dress. Plaid dresses normally are black and red, and either have a third color of white, silver, or gold. Depending on what that third color of the plaid dress is, is what I would wear. Personally, I would wear the black and have two of the girls dresses is black and what ever the third color of the plaid dress is.

  • What color would look best on YOU? And on all of them? Go with that. I notice when someone takes a picture in a color that makes them look good or bad.

  • My personal opinion - my favorite family shots are the ones where everyone looks like themselves, and doesn't look like they tried to dress for the picture. I'd put everyone in their favorite outfit, whichever one that is, thus greatly reducing your chances of ever ending up on Awkward Family Photos.

  • Actually I did check it out at TJ Maxx for you yesterday.... there were various forms of cream sweaters. You could go with a bright accessory or shoe. Maybe a red scarf or various red accessories.

    Or call the photography studio and ask them for suggestions...
