Street Photography Fashion Ideas For You

nc efi placeholder

When planning a street photography outfit, it’s important not to get caught up in trends or fashion. Instead, focus on what works best for you and your body type, and make sure that it is comfortable and functional so that you can move around easily as you shoot. Here are some tips I’ve learned over the years:

Choosing comfortable clothes

When choosing the clothes you wear for street photography ideas, comfort is key. You want to be able to move freely and easily without feeling restricted or uncomfortable in anything you’re wearing. It’s important to remember that if you are going out on a cold day, wearing layers can be a good idea so that you can add or remove them as needed throughout the day.

Another thing that is important when choosing comfortable clothing is making sure that it doesn’t get in your way when taking photos! If something feels like it might get caught on something while trying to take photographs, then it probably shouldn’t be worn until after shooting has been completed (or at least until another time).

Choose a color scheme and stick to it

You should choose a color scheme that matches your personality, but don’t go overboard with too many colors or ones that clash. If you’re going for the “edgy” look, try wearing dark red pants with a black shirt and white shoes–and maybe even throw in some silver jewelry if you want! But don’t wear all black with bright neon green sneakers–that doesn’t make sense!

Don’t wear anything that distracts from your subjects

When you’re photographing people, there are a few things you should avoid wearing. First of all, loud colors and patterns tend to draw attention away from your subject. You want your outfit to complement the environment and not distract from it.

Secondly, don’t wear anything that draws attention away from your subjects or their surroundings–this includes accessories like hats or sunglasses (unless they’re part of your character), as well as jewelry that clinks against each other when you move around too much!

Keep the main focal point of your outfit

When it comes to street photography fashion, there are a few things that you should avoid.

  • Bright colors: If you’re going for the classic look, avoid bright colors and patterns. You don’t want your outfit to be distracting from the scene in front of you.
  • Logos: Try not wear anything with logos or other words on it, these can also distract from what’s happening around you!
  • Too much color/pattern: Your outfit should have some color but not too much (this goes for black and white as well). It’s best when everything in an outfit blends together nicely so that no one piece stands out more than another piece does; this will create harmony between all elements of your look which will make them flow together nicely instead of clashing against one another like two different styles would do if mixed together improperly.”

Avoid anything too flashy or attention-grabbing

  • Avoid loud colors.
  • Avoid bright colors.
  • Avoid too many accessories, especially those that are flashy or attention-grabbing (like big earrings, necklaces and bracelets).
  • Clothing should be simple and clean cut; avoid clothing that is too tight or baggy.

Wear clothes that flatter your body type

  • If you’re tall, wear high heels. The higher the heel, the longer your legs will appear and the slimmer they’ll look.
  • If you’re short, wear flats or even better: flats with platforms! They make legs look longer while also creating an illusion of height.
  • If you are heavy (or simply don’t want to show off some extra pounds), dark colors like black or navy blue can help hide problem areas like arms and thighs while highlighting other parts of the body like cheekbones or collarbones in a flattering way.
  • Finally, if being thin is one of your main goals when dressing up for street photography events then bright colors are going to be your best bet! Bright colors attract attention so they’ll draw eyes towards where they should go: toward what makes us beautiful, our faces!


The most important thing to remember when dressing for street photography is that you should wear what makes you feel comfortable and confident. If your outfit doesn’t flatter your body type or colors don’t complement each other well, it may not be worth wearing at all. The goal here is not necessarily to look like a model on the runway but rather someone who knows how to dress themselves well enough so that they don’t distract from their subjects or environment when taking pictures in public places!
