“Choose two or three main pieces, and complete with little accessories to get a clean picture. Also, keep harmony between clothes colours.”

“First: It's all about proportion: Balance out larger items with extremely small ones to create some scale in your flat lay.
Second: Create a full look: A fun way to share my #ootd is to create a whole flat lay. Feature your fave pieces of your look and include statement pieces like a great shoe or a pair of shades.
Third: Use a step stool: If I am getting larger items in my phone shot and I want to include everything, I pull out my step stool I usually use to grab things in my closet to take the perfect shot from above.”

“Forget about making the clothes photographed too perfectly—the flat lay should reflect your bedroom floor, not a store display. Fold tops messily, cuff jeans how you would actually wear them, and place shoes in opposite directions.”
Follow Angel Food Style
“Use a white or bright background to help show the true colours of your products. If you don't have one, get crafty and make one using white paper (sometimes I'll use the backside of wrapping paper).
