What to Wear Wednesday…with Stephanie Newbold

It’s WTWW and this week we have Stephanie Newbold Photography joining us!

“One question every senior client asks me is, “What should I wear?” My answer is always “Whatever
looks good on you, fits you well and represents your OWN style”. Even though Tucson is Arizona’s
second largest metropolis, it still has a laid back, casual, college town vibe that’s reflected in my seniors’
wardrobe. Today’s post is about layering using fun jackets and vests, and different fabrics and textures
to help your seniors create a pulled together look while still embracing their own unique style for their
portrait session.

Mixing different fabrics helps my seniors create a personal and stylish look. I love how Cecily layered this
long, shearling and suede vest over her floral knit dress. It adds texture and dimension while creating a
stylish, contemporary look. Using the vest’s neutral colors and fun collar shape over the dress keeps the
look “layery” and feminine without looking bulky and it definitely plays well with Cecily’s natural style.

With over 350 days of sunny weather per year, we tend to hold on to our summer pieces all year round,
making them do double duty in the fall and winter. Layering a simple summer dress with a military style
button up, long sleeve shirt styles it down a bit for a more casual look.

This military style jacket and studded ankle boots add some personality for a fun, urban look. Jacqi’s
sundress looks great worn with ankle boots, especially when topped with this military style jacket (or
you could even use a blazer or cardigan).

The same trick works for shorts or shorter skirts — add a pair of patterned tights and boots and layer
with a hoodie and denim vest.

If your senior chooses to wear several layers on top, keep the bottom half of the outfit long and lean. I
love Caitlin’s skinny jeans and tee, layered with the long crochet sweater and boots. It adds a little urban
flair to an otherwise simple look.

A denim jacket is always a great option for a fall look, and I love this hippy chic version paired with
Sadie’s floral dress and boots. It’s a great reflection of her style and adds some visual interest to her
outfit.

A fun option for adding a touch of denim is to swap the jacket for a denim or chambray button down. I
love this one layered over a simple tee or tank and paired with this gold brocade mini skirt and cowgirl
boots. The fabrics, textures and patterns complement each other without being overwhelming. Haley’s
gold brocade skirt adds just the perfect touch of glam to the casual chambray shirt and tee.

Layering with jackets, vests, sweaters and shirts give you lots of options to help your seniors embrace
their casual style, and combining different patterns and textures gives you lots of options to add a touch
of glam or a hippie chic vibe. Have fun with it and help your seniors add some chic to their casual!”

Wow Stephanie! Such a good post! These seniors all look comfortable but amazing in all of these looks. And I’m obsessing over Cecily’s hair!
Thanks so much for the tips and photo candy!

Stay Stylish!
