What Colors to Wear For a Beach Photoshoot - Summer Style

As we jump into this styling guide we have to set a few ground rules. These are just opinions, if you love something that we recommend against then go for it! These are your beach family photos!

We recommend staying away from the uniform look. You know the one, all khaki pants and white polo shirts. Or all in one color bottom and everyone in the same color top. If you want to look like the photos were taken in the 90s then go for it. (There are some instances where having everyone in one color does look great). Use your own judgement.

Ok. Time to get into our favorite suggestions!

This combo always looks great. Feel free to swap out the pink for another pastel color. You could use turquoise, coral, or yellow. It even looks great with no color at all, just having the navy blue and white really pops.

I know this can be scary for some, White dress? If this is a little hard for you to pull off then just switch some colors around. There’s no hard and fast rules to this.

The red white and blue is a classic nautical beach look. Especially in the north east. Think Maryland crabs and Maine lobster boats. 

Some form of this combination is probably the one we see the most. Blues are incredibly popular and then add some touch of pink or red and white. This is the base of every great color scheme. Don’t like the white? Just switch it out for a khaki or tan. not a fan of red or coral? Just flip it to more of a pink. You can’t go wrong with a form of this color scheme. You can go nuts and add in navy along with the white or khaki and pink or red. It’s hard to screw this one up.

Yes I know I said no solid colors. However if you are feeling adventurous and think you can pull this off then go for it! It can look great in the right situations. If you know you all look great in white then this can really stand out in a family photo. If you have a little bit of doubt about this then you should stick to one of the above color schemes.
