How important is it for seniors to absolutely own their fashion style during their senior portrait shoot?

It is very important! Your style defines who you are at that moment in time.  It shows everyone who you are and what you love without having to say anything!



What are the current fashion trends?

White is BACK!! White on white, white with denim, white + black, lots of white! It's perfect for summer.  Also, 70's style is making a come back with funky patterns!


What brands will they find at Kieu's?

For denim, you can find pieces by Flying Monkey, Just USA, and KanCan.  For basics, NikiBiki and they are super comfortable!  We also carry our own Kieu's line!


What are some tips for seniors to keep their wardrobe classic, yet modern for their senior portrait session?

Start with classic shapes; like an A-line dress.  If it's a solid color, add a statement piece to make it more modern.  Or another fun way to accomplish the classic yet modern look is to choose a classic shape in a funky pattern. 


What colors are hot right now?

White, pastels, and neutrals. Also, pairing navy and black together for a play on classic colors.


What is the best way to dress up blue jeans?

Adding a fun tank or a kimono is a great way to dress up blue jeans! To make destroyed denim look more dressed up, I'd recommend a pair of wedges or really fun sandals.

We do a lot of social events; a big one is Twitter Tuesday specials. We also like to give out tips and outfit ideas on our Instagram!


For accessories, what is in right now?

Hats with destroyed denim! For metal, gold or mixing metals.  One of the biggest accessory trends is to stack a bunch of delicate pieces.
