Updated: Nov 13, 2023

I've spent the last 15 years of my life in front of the camera. I've had messages from viewers telling me they love my outfit, and some not so nice messages telling me they hate it and I look unprofessional.

Also in my 15 years in front of the camera, I've had the privilege of working with on-camera consultants on numerous topics, including what to wear and what to avoid during an on-camera appearance.

If you are going to appear on-camera, it's important to consider what you wear as it can affect how you are perceived by the audience. Here are some tips on how to dress on-camera:

  1. Wear solid colors: Avoid patterns or prints, as they can be distracting on camera. Solid colors work best, especially darker colors like black, navy blue, and dark green.

  2. Avoid bright colors: Bright colors can be too intense on camera and may cause the camera to pick up too much contrast. Instead, opt for muted or neutral colors.

  3. Dress appropriately: Dress appropriately for the occasion or the topic you will be discussing. If you're discussing business or finance, wear something professional, like a suit or blazer. If it's a more casual setting, you may be able to dress more casually.

  4. Pay attention to your accessories: Avoid wearing flashy jewelry or accessories that may be distracting on camera. Keep it simple and understated.

  5. Keep your makeup and hair natural: For women, keep your makeup natural-looking and avoid anything too bold or trendy. For men, make sure your hair is neatly styled and avoid using too much product.

  6. Pay attention to the background: Make sure your clothing contrasts with your background. If you are on a white background, avoid wearing white, as it will make you blend in too much.

Overall, it's important to be comfortable in what you're wearing, as it will help you appear confident and at ease on camera.
