Optimize your phone camera's settings.

You don't need an expensive phone to shoot a great photo. We recommend this Android phone, OPPO Reno8 T 5G. This phone's camera system boasts a 64-megapixel primary camera and an impressive 44-megapixel front-facing camera. It can capture high-resolution images with plenty of detail and clarity, making your outfit photos stand out on social media. Additionally, the phone's ultra-wide lens and macro lens give you more creative options for capturing different angles and details. Laureen Uy uses this phone to take most of her OOTD pics!

Choose the right background

The background of your photo can make or break your outfit shot. Opt for a simple and uncluttered background that won't distract from your outfit. Or, you can pick a background with colors that complement your look. For example, a field of flowers to match a dress outfit.

Use props

Add extra texture to your pics by using accessories like sunglasses, hats, and jewelry. You can also include food, coffee, or a cocktail drink. Play around with different props to see what works best for your outfit or vibe.

Edit your photos

Even the best photos can benefit from a little editing. If you're feeling like a pro, try apps like Lightroom, and VSCO to adjust the brightness, contrast, and color of your photos to create a cohesive feed. If you want film cam effects, go for NOMO or Dazz Cam. We're also partial to Prequel and Foodie because of the various filters available.

The bottom line

Remember, after mastering all these tips, the key to a great outfit photo is confidence. You have to communicate with the camera so the pic would have a ~vibe~. So put on your favorite outfit, strike a pose, and be yourself!
