When I was in TV news full-time, the thought of what I would wear was a daily issue. But what I shouldn’t wear became fairly automatic and not a big consideration.
As I prep my clients to go on TV, I’m reminded that the topic doesn’t come naturally for most. Here are some quick tips: avoid black, avoid white, avoid black and white together. If you must wear a dark jacket, be sure to wear a bright blouse or colored shirt underneath. You want some color lighting your face. Avoid crazy patterns. Everyone should own something in royal purple. For men, a great tie. For women, a blouse or jacket. It makes all skin colors look great!
Most importantly, wear something that makes you feel confident. That kind of glow always looks good on TV.
