The Best Colors to Wear to a Sunflower Field
Since most sunflower photoshoots are going to take place in the fall, definitely keep a fall color palette in mind. When deciding what to wear for pictures in a sunflower field, think navy, orange (burnt orange and corals will both work!), deep shades of teal, plum, beige, brown/camel, and burgundy. Consider avoiding olive. Even though it’s a go-to fall color and might seem like it coordinates well, the green is likely to get lost among the stems of the flowers. Mustard and other shades of yellow can be hit or miss, so only go that route if you’re feeling good about it!
You Can’t Go Wrong With White
Unless you have very pale skin and are worried about a white top or dress washing out your skin tone, I highly recommend considering an outfit with at least one white piece in it. Whether it’s a charming blouse, a white denim jacket (read about my favorite one here), or a whimsical dress, there’s something about the crisp, fresh look of white that pops so well in a sunflower field. Don’t worry about if it’s after labor day or not. You won’t regret choosing white for your sunflower field photoshoot or other fall picture ideas. Here are some options to consider:
Family Outfits for Sunflower Pictures:
If you’re doing family sunflower field photos, this is the process I recommend for choosing outfits! Pick 2-3 colors to work with and focus on. Depending on how many people will be in the photos, either have everyone wear solid colors, or balance out the number of people wearing prints with the number of people wearing solids. That way, you’ll end up with outfits that look coordinated instead of outfits that clash. For example, having everyone in a mixture of navy, light blue, and white would look beautiful as far as outfits to wear to a sunflower field.
When in Doubt, Wear Denim
Where you’re planning your looks for seniors photos or planning or outfits for this year’s family portraits, you can’t go wrong with denim. The blue hue and texture of denim fabric never fail to be complemented by the golden glow of sunflowers for a sunflower portrait session. For something edgy and chic, try a head to toe denim look like a denim jumpsuit. Or, for a classic look, pair your favorite pair of jeans with a fall colored wrap top for an elegant, understated outfit.
Best Dresses to Wear in a Sunflower Field for Pictures:
As you can tell from these photos, I opted for a tiered coral maxi dress for the outdoor pictures I took at a sunflower field, but here are a few other options that would look just as lovely:
What to Wear for Sunflower Senior Pictures:
If you’re opting for a sunflower field senior picture session, you want to make sure you’re showcasing your personality! For an on-trend and current look, opt for something fun like a dress with statement sleeves or a free-spirited maxi dress.
Finding a Sunflower Field Near You
If you’re wondering, “where is there a sunflower field near me?”, I recommend looking into local farms as they often offer pick-your-own flowers in the spring, summer, and fall. You’ll most likely find options for sunflowers in the late summer and into fall. It’s rare to find. You can also look at websites for local photographers. They will often blog about recent sessions and often disclose where they were shot at. So, if you find a blog post of a sunflower field photoshoot, you might be able to catch the name of the nearby farm or sunflower field that they went to.
