Stepping into a room and feeling that dreaded awkward silence as all eyes fixate on your outfit choices – we've all been there! But fear not, for we've got you covered. In this blog post, we'll unveil our Top Wardrobe Tips for Your Video Shoot, ensuring you'll shine with confidence and style. So, let's waste no time and dive straight into these essential tips that will guarantee you get it right!

What Not to Wear

Busy Patterns and Stripes

Avoid wearing clothing with busy patterns, bold stripes, or intricate designs. These can create distracting visual elements on camera and take the focus away from your message.

Large Logos and Branding

Steer clear of clothing with large or prominent logos and branding. Visible brand names may inadvertently overshadow the video or documentary's content and messaging.

Shiny or Reflective Fabrics

Skip clothing made from shiny or reflective fabrics, as they can cause glare or undesirable reflections under professional lighting.

Ill-Fitting Outfits

Opt for well-fitted clothing that flatters your body shape. Avoid outfits that are too tight, too loose as they can detract from a polished appearance.

Noisy Accessories

Refrain from wearing noisy accessories such as jangling bracelets, clinking jewellery, or anything that creates distracting sounds during filming.

Overly Casual Attire

While dress codes may vary based on the nature of the video or documentary, it's best to wear outfits that are reflective of your position or role, and at the same time allow you to look at your best. Avoid overly casual attire like t-shirts, sweatpants, or beachwear, especially for a corporate setting.

Revealing Outfits

Dress modestly and avoid clothing that shows too much skin, as it might not align with the professional tone of a corporate video or documentary you're producing.

Wrinkled or Blemished Garments

If you are expected to make outfit changes throughout the video shoot, then ensure that you've prepared, ironed, hanged and protected your outfits the night before.

What to Wear

Solid Colours

Solid-coloured clothing that complements your skin tone and contrasts with the background are always preferred. Classic colours like navy blue, grey, and earth tones often work well on camera. If you have an alternative or are struggling, check with the producer to ensure your outfit choice works with the set design and tone of the video.

Neutral and Subtle Patterns

If you prefer patterns, opt for neutral and subtle designs that don't overpower your appearance or distract from the content.


Keep accessories simple and elegant. Minimalist jewellery and accessories can add a touch of sophistication without overwhelming the frame, but may also not be neccessary.

Dress for the Occasion

Consider the context and setting of the video or documentary when choosing your outfit. Formal attire may be suitable for certain corporate videos or documentaries, while business casual could work for others.


Above all, prioritise comfort in your outfit choices. Feeling at ease in your clothing will help you appear more confident and natural on camera.

At Cuecard Productions, we believe that dressing appropriately for your corporate video or documentary shoot can enhance your confidence, on-camera presence and elevate the overall production value.
