What to Wear to your Winter Photo Session

I'm really proud to present this guest post from fashion blogger Sarah of Ivy Lane. I started following Sarah on Instagram which then lead me to her blog. Oh my gosh, I loved it! She has such great style and I love how she expresses herself. Sarah has a skill that I do not possess – she is great at assembling outfits (although I must say in recent times, I am improving!) . Sarah is my guest blogger for each change of season, giving you information and ideas for styling your photo session. Lucky us! If you’d like to leave a comment below to let us know what you think of our What to Wear blog posts, we’d both love to hear from you. You can check out Sarah’s blog here. I’ll hand over to Sarah now:

'Winter can be a tricky season to shop and dress for but in my opinion it doesn't have to be! Dressing for winter can be made easy with just a few little touches. I like to follow these 4 guidelines when I'm having a meltdown on what to wear in winter. * Choose winter colours likes black and dark grey as well as navy and cream, stripes if you wish. * Add a heeled ankle boot to dress up any casual outfit * Choose beautiful fabrics like cashmere & silks so even when it feels like its a boring outfit, the fabric will make all the difference and; * Last one - when in doubt of your outfit feeling dull, add a scarf! Whether it be bright & colourful or a thick warm block colour, either will do the trick for another element to your look.

So now that I've said that I have just realised that I only really followed those rules for the women and kids looks (sort of). As always though, men do have it easy when it comes to... well just about everything! In fashion it doesn't take them much to look good, a nice shirt and pants and they're done! #notfair!

Anyway...here are some outfit ideas for your winter photo shoot. As always, try to keep things simple and timeless as you'll have these photos forever! (no crazy trends in other words).

Hope you enjoy, Sarah x'
