The goal of a profile picture is to present you. On Facebook and Instagram, you want to look good. On LinkedIn, you want to look professional. On dating sites made for casual dating, you want to look hot enough to make everyone stop scrolling because of your profile photo. You see, regardless of the media, a profile picture is very important. You can leave the first impression only once, and that’s why you need tips about outfits we’ll provide today.
If you want to choose a great outfit for your profile photo, following the trends is crucial. Imagine you want to find someone for a casual fling and choose to take advantage of online dating. First things first, check the trends before taking a pic you’ll upload for everyone to see. Some people register on a casual dating site and explore profiles of local users prior to filling in their own. Only after learning what others wear to look attractive, sexy, and approachable, they start taking their own pictures. Being informed can help you not only to get likes but also to meet new people and win a perfect match for a casual date.
And it works in any other situation, as well. When you learn to scan others’ looks, you can be sure you’ll choose the best outfit for every photo. Just don’t forget to keep pace with trends.
Fashion Intelligence Keeps Your Social Life Alive
Understanding and following fashion won’t just help you look good in photos but also keep your social life alive. How? When you follow the trends, you get in touch with people who share your interests. You start noticing the same people again and again. One thing leads to another, and you start talking (in person or online). The process is pretty similar to dating, but instead of romance, you get friends on your fashion intelligence level.
Picking the Best Fashion Trend for Your Profile Picture
You may feel and look amazing, but your profile picture won’t grab a lot of attention. At least not positive attention. To prevent that from happening, follow the advice below.
Understand Your Motive
Not all profile pictures are created equal. And that’s good because every profile picture has a different goal. Maybe you want to show everybody your new outfit. Maybe you want to highlight certain attributes to attract new people or show your exes what they are missing. Maybe you’re looking for a new job, so you want to look as professional as possible. Or you got a kid, and you want your first uploaded photo to be amazing and up to date with the latest fashion trends.
Motives for uploading new profile photos are almost infinite. That’s why knowing what you want to achieve by showing off a new photo is very important. If you don’t understand your motive, you’ll choose an outfit and picture that won’t bring the results you want. You’ll feel bad because of that. You may even think there is something wrong with you and ruin your self-esteem. All of that because you didn’t stop for a second and asked yourself: “Why I’m I choosing this picture?” Be honest with yourself, and you won’t make many mistakes, in fashion or life.
Possess a Good Sense of Fashion
Nobody is born with a good sense of fashion. People learn about fashion on the way, the same as everything else. Of course, some people are gifted, so they understand fashion easier than others. Regardless of the category you fit in, you can develop a very good sense of fashion. You can do it by following celebrities because they are trend-setters. Websites and magazines about fashion are gold mines when it comes to sharpening your sense of fashion.
Know What Suits You
Knowing your motive and understanding fashion won’t help you if you can’t look at yourself objectively—the same as you look at somebody else while judging their outfits. Knowing what you can pull off and what you should burn into ashes is a difference between average and extraordinary. Once you find what suits your body type and your personality, you may even start having outfits for different moods. All of them will be amazing, and all of your profile photos will cause heart attacks.
