Taking Outfit Of The Day shots are not effortless, even if they may look like they are. In fact, it takes a lot of patience because you need to take note of lighting, the angles that best suit and flatter you and your look, and the poses--which are always the hardest one to master. You may have a signature pose but having a few more up your sleeves is a great way to show your followers variety.


Learning from Clozette's community of fashionistas, here are 5 poses you can use to step up your OOTD game. 


--------------------------


The Stand Still

Starting from the most stoic pose of all, "The Stand Still," is one way to stop traffic. A bold, blank stare and a front profile of your whole look gives your followers a full view of the outfit. 

Side View

Another dramatic look is a shot of the side view of your outfit. This gives your viewers a portion of your look and is best if you want to give them a clearer view of your accessories. It's also the go-to angle if you want your readers to know how the pieces fit on you.



The Look Away

"The Look Away" is the perfect OOTD pose option for those looking to create that though-provoking photo. "The Look Away" can either be looking to the side or looking down while showing the body's front profile.



Candid

A candid  OOTD shot demands a skilled photographer (or someone's that's just really great at timing) as it tries to capture a raw and moving photo of you and your OOTD. This can stretch from wacky to a chic, paparazzi type of shot depending on your movement. Try walking, swaying your skirt or dress, or slowly doing your signature poses and let your photographer do the clicking. 



The Cross Over

"The Cross Over" is a no-fail way to get a flattering shot. Just place yourself in front of the camera and cross one leg in front of the other for the illusion of longer legs. It's up to you to experiment with your face and hands for an elegant and sophisticated OOTD shot.

A few years back, white wasn't as popular as black. But nowadays, it seems that people have embraced white and its many stylish versions. Since the rise of the monochrome, basic, and laidback trends--white has been the go-to colour for any outfit. It's versatile and can make anyone look fresh in an instant.


To give you a lowdown on how to wear white according to your style, here are 5 no-fail pairings to choose from! 


--------------------------


Laidback Chic: White Polo + Denim Shorts

For those days you feel like taking a step back and letting the inner effortless chick in you take over, you can pair a classic long-sleeve white polo with denim shorts. It has the perfect balance of "chic" because of the polo's structure, and "laidback" because of the shorts' length and denim texture. A perfect off-duty look than can be dressed down with sandals or dressed up with heels. 

Boho: White Sleeveless Top + Maxi Skirt

Flowy white sleeveless tops are perfect for that boho, gypsy vibe. Tuck it in a simple maxi skirt to make it look put together for formal events, or tuck it out for an more relaxed boho flavour. You can also experiment with flowy crop tops or off-shoulder tops for a feminine touch. 



Preppy: White Polo + Overalls

Go loco with the preppy style by matching your overalls with a structured white polo. It automatically makes you look sophisticated yet still very classy and fun all at the same time. Add a monochrome twist to it by pairing your white top with black pieces so the white can pop.



Feminine: Crop Top + Skirt

Make your crop tops look classy by paring it with a chic, high-wasited A-line skirt. It will flatter your upper body shape without showing too much skin. The skirt also adds a touch of femininity to the look--just make sure it's not too short to keep the look sophisticated. Experiment with bejewelled necklaces and other skirts to infuse your personal style to it. 



Boyish: White Shirt + Ripped Boyfriend Jeans

Borrow from the men's section for a change and make it your own! Pair your crew neck, or v-neck shirt with a pair of ripped boyfriend jeans for an edgy, boyish style. For an added sporty touch you can wear your trusty white sneakers or go the femme route with a pair of fierce lace-up heels.
