There are several different tricks celebs use to look more photogenic. (Remember squinching?) Well, A-lister's specific fashion choices have a lot to do with how they come across in photos, too—especially when it comes to the prints they wear. To give you a sense of the specific patterns celebrities tend to wear to look better in pics, we tapped stylist and photographer Alex Sweterlitsch who takes unique snaps of influencers and celebs for his Instagram account, @fashioninstant.
Keep scrolling to check out the three prints celebrities wear to appear more photogenic in photos, and get inspired for your next pic!
"While I think vintage-inspired patterns are fun to look at, floral and tapestry prints can photograph super flat or unflattering once worn on the body. I love what brands like Gucci and Coach have done in terms of collaging or blocking these prints—definitely not your grandma’s vintage dresses." — Alex Sweterlitsch
On Selena Gomez: Louis Vuitton dress, bag, and boots.
"Think sporty stripes or grid patterns, graphic prints are the best at silhouetting and streamlining the figure. They can highlight parts of the body if worn tight or draw your eyes elsewhere when worn loose. These prints look best in bright colors or black-and-white." — Alex Sweterlitsch
On Taylor Swift: Louis Vuitton dress; Mark Cross Grace Large Box Bag ($2495).
"Not only is tie-dye super trendy right now, I think it’s a great way to incorporate prints and add dimension if you normally wear solid colors. Stick to subtle, soft neutrals and rich hues in silk or cotton fabric, and it can look elevated rather than bad festival fashion." — Alex Sweterlitsch
On Jaime King: Sonoma Goods for Life dress.
