Summer Engagement Outfit Ideas for Her and Him

June 6, 2018 | nicole

The sun is out and we’ve rounded up a whole slew of summer engagement outfit ideas for her and him to help you beat the heat and nail your engagement session! When it comes to choosing your engagement outfits, there are a few things you want to keep in mind, no matter what you wear. First, you want to coordinate, but not match. Rather than wearing the exact same colors, choose a color palette of complementing hues. Find pieces that speak to each other through color with tone, warm versus cool, and sticking to shared neutrals. Second, consider how the pieces will move when you’re wearing them. Movement in fabric makes for beautiful photographs, so find pieces with elements that flow as you move like long skirts, fringe, scarves, etc. Third, be sure to pick outfits that won’t wrinkle as you go from sitting to standing during your engagement session. Removing wrinkles is typically not part of your photographer’s editing process as it requires a heavy amount of retouching to make look natural. Save yourself time and money by looking for wrinkle-free fabrics. Lastly, don’t forget to show off your personalities! Print, color, silhouette, and accessories are all ways to make your personal style shine through in your engagement outfits.

We already mentioned the importance of movement in your engagement outfits and ladies, you’re in luck, because loose and flowing is totally in this summer! Whether your dress is mini or maxi, there are tons of flattering, flowing styles to choose from in your favorite color or print. When it comes to separates, we recommend contrasting volume in your top and bottom by choosing a looser fit for one and a tighter fit for the other. For instance, pair culottes with a fitted crop top, or a flowy blouse with a slim-fitting skirt.
