Women wear wool
coat-dresses or dresses with simple necklines, tailored
blazers, or jewel-necked sweaters. Solid colored blouses
with slacks are also fine, if appropriate. Keep
accessories simple and classic.
Men should wear
starched, solid, pastel shirts with trim collars and
navy blue or charcoal blazers/suit coats. Patterned ties
are fine if not too busy. Socks should match slacks.
Broadcast-quality video will
record color differently from what your eyes see. Deep
to light blue, forest or emerald to light green, purple
and yellow are camera-friendly colors. In general, avoid
red, black or white.
Busy patterns can also be hazardous to the picture!
Fabrics including cotton,
heavy silk, and wool work best. Light silks or polyester
sometimes rustle and can cause problems for the
microphone, especially if it will be hidden out of sight
on the person speaking.
Jewelry should be matte (not
shiny) and kept to a minimum.
If you have contact lenses
and can wear them instead of glasses, that is preferred.
