You may feel overwhelmed or just totally disinterested in spending money and time shopping for lingerie. No problem – you definitely don’t have to. Below are some classic examples of effortless style and five looks for your boudoir shoot that don’t require a trip to the mall.
01. The Bodysuit
French Bombshell Brigitte Bardot and OG Barbie knew what was up – Bodysuits look great on pretty much every body. If you’re tummy conscious a bodysuit can be a great choice help to conceal the midsection but also flatter the curves of your waistline. Super versatile and can be both sexy and casual. Best part is; you probably already own one.
02. The White Button Up
Audrey Hepburn was celebrated for her classic, sophisticated style and this is a perfect example of the beauty of simplicity. The white button up is a closet staple for many women – It’s versatile, clean and focuses the attention on you not what you’re wearing. Oversized works best for this look. It makes for an effortless and comfortable start to your session.
03. The Slip
Another easy option for one of your boudoir outfits. Slips come in many different cuts and styles. Stick with basic black or nude to keep things simple or you could look for a vintage one with lace embellishment like the one Elizabeth Taylor is wearing here.
04. The White Sheet
White sheets are super fun to play with and create ultra artistic shots in boudoir sessions – it gives the idea of nudity without having to “bare it all.” I love styling with them to create unique looks for my clients.
05. Your Birthday Suit
Yep, I said it. Get naked. The female body has been the subject of some of the greatest works of art out there so let’s join them.
Clothed or not my style is more implicit than explicit. I shoot in a way that emphasizes women’s power and confidence through posing + playing with various lighting techniques to create timeless, tasteful photos that could only ever be considered art. Think editorial; Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue style portraiture – cool, effortless, chic.
