- Do not wear stripes, heavy patterns, single color outfits, or tank tops.
- Do go for 3 quarter length sleeves as they are always flattering to your arms and waist, and make sure pants/jeans fit.
- Layers can look awesome, just make sure they aren't bulky.

Think about the location, where the picture will hang in your home, as well as your personality. Keep it simple, the focus should be on you and not your clothing. Try not to wear something with a bold pattern or logos. If you want a formal, traditional look then you may want everyone wear similar tones. White and khaki or jeans are fine when it is a very large group, it keeps it simple. I don't suggest black or very dark clothing as they tend to make the heads look like they are floating and sand will stand out when stuck to it. If you are wanting a more fun relaxed photograph then you may choose bright funky colors, layers can look great, just make sure they fit.
