ok so I'm gonna show you babes how to make the perfect outfit layout - well at least my idea of perfect. If you do follow me on Instagram, you would have realised I love taking pics of my clothes, a few people have even asked me if those are really my pics or are they just reposted from another user or site.
Answer is, yes, all pics belong to me and I can spend over 30 minutes creating an outfit layout. I hate anything to look less than my idea of perfect, and even after taking the pic, I'll deliberate for like 2-3 days before finally posting it (i'm a bit weird I know but it shows that i put in my best for you guyyyyyyyssssss )
Anyway, today i'm featuring the pretty romper my sister bought from Scape last weekend. My iphone is kinda horrifying when taking pix, it PMSes sometimes so bear with the bad quality till i get a new phone (i do have a camera but hardly use it)
Featured clothing item!!
Sometimes people ask me, what's the point in taking outfit layouts, it's just clothes and you're not even in it. The point is.....I love my clothes and i hope that by taking all the pretty outfit layouts, some others would be inspired to recreate their own layouts - it's really quite fun- and also inspire their dressing!
So how is an outfit layout actually taken? Check out the pic below...This is when you don't put in any effort, just put the clothes on floor. It's easy to spot the outfits that take effort and those that don't. Outfits that take effort doesnt necessarily need to have so many details, becuz just the clothing item alone need time arranging, especially for skirts.
I didnt intentionally mess up the pic above, but I'v seen pics like that - poor lighting, ugly flooring, messy details. Anyone could create an outfit like that.
Here's how I do mine... Start off by arranging the main clothing item i.e. the romper, when you lay it on the floor, there'll definitely be creases and so on. So that has to be arranged properly, skirt need to be spread out and the back of the skirt part has to be hidden behind the front.
Note how I arrange the creases so it doesn't look uneven or crumpled. Lighting should also be good, preferably sunlight and there should be minimal shadows.
After you have arranged the clothes, you can start by adding details such as necklaces and other accessories. An outfit does not have to be an ideal outfit for wearing out, becuz it's just a picture and all you need is for it to look good. Thus, you can even use bracelets as 'necklaces' or just flowers would look pretty!
And for the bag, align it neatly with the outfit. For this outfit layout, I'm using an inspired Chanel infinity bag sponsored by Shop Kysse.
(see previous post for more pics)
I always like outfit layouts with alot of details, so here goes the bracelets, sunglasses etc.
You can add other stuff like iPhone cases, pretty perfume bottles, magazines and so on. Not many people bother with alot of such details, becuz it's all external and not really the focus. But for me I don't like it if the outfit has too much 'empty space'
And here goes........ the finished outfit! you can also get cheap flowers from Daiso to add in cuz it'll fill up 'empty spaces' and also give the outfit layout a sweet touch.
Oh and I always filter my pics cuz somehow I think it looks better with filter. For my outfit layouts, I always use the filter valencia.
After applying filter.....
And finally, put the 2 pics side by side for your easy comparison. The right side definitely takes way lesser time, but i'd rather spend that 10 mins fussing over it than just deliver something anyone else could reconstruct easily.
I hope those who like fashion would've enjoyed this post and get th idea of how i do up my outfit layouts! ^^ thank you for reading~
