What should I wear on camera?
Updated: Jan 20, 2021
Who made the rules of what to wear for an on-camera media interview, business presentation, video conference call, video shoot or public speaking engagement?
Conventional sources tell you to wear something conservative when on camera.
Do you have a media interview? A navy suit is your safest (although most boring) bet. Are you speaking in front of an audience? Where is that (dull, forgettable) black dress in your closet?
It is an odd thing that when all eyes are on you, the temptation is to dress to blend in to the curtain drapery or backdrop.
Let’s take a lesson from Queen Elizabeth. When she is in the spotlight, it is her goal to make it easy for people to spot her. Sophie, Countess of Wessex is quoted as saying, "She needs to stand out for people to be able to say 'I saw the Queen.'"
The same principle applies when YOU are the one on camera or on stage presenting.
Do you want people to think you are a member of the audience who accidentally wandered onto stage or do you want to be seen as a confident, dynamic, sought-after expert who has something interesting to say?
This is your opportunity to STAND OUT and make a memorable impression.
