Something about this statement makes me chuckle. Like on the days you don't wear them, you 'tried' but missed both legs?;)

I'm glad you laughed. That's how I meant it and it took three years for someone to get that joke. :)

Brenda typically wears something business casual-like. Works for us.

It's very dependent on the photographer.

If they are considered amazing, they can show up in anything. If they are drop dead gorgeous, they can show up in anything. In my experience, women have a LOT more leeway with what they can wear. Lindsay (my wife) is really, really pretty and almost always wears a more elegant/simple Anthropologie dress. I can think of many occasions where her attire has been a positive.

So I think girls can wear just about anything as long as it isn't too flashy, too revealing, or too casual. Don't look frumpy. Don't look unkempt. And look as good as you can.

all black. can't ever go wrong. You look like a vender. You blend in the background. Maybe one day I'll try a color shirt....but for now... black seems to work. (plus it slims down) lol

Black leggings or black skinny pants, solid muted color or neutral colored top, usually tunic length so no risk of back skin showing when I'm crouching a lot, will just wear a couple layered tank tops if it's hot, black blazer if it gets chilly in the evenings. knee-high flat-heeled leather boots (Frye boots.. most comfortable for an entire day shooting) or TOMS ballet flats, I see regular TOMS worn by a lot of photographers I work with who swear they are the most comfortable shoes to wear several hours shooting a wedding, but I can't bring myself to wear them, I think they're ugly LOL.

It's not quite "dressy casual" but I also don't show up looking dumpy either. I come comfortable and ready to work all day long.
