Selfies are such a fun form of self-love. There’s something about capturing yourself on camera that’s not only light and playful, but confident and powerful. However, as simple as selfies should be, there are several challenges that can get in the way of achieving the ideal photos (lighting, shadows and background clutter, oh my!)
That’s where the new Selfie Wrld installation comes into focus, inviting you to capture your creativity, strike a pose (or several) and smile as the likes roll in on your latest selfie portraits, boomerangs, TikToks and more. Stations feature backgrounds that range from colorful and nostalgic to minimal and modern – as well as fun props, the perfect lighting, phone holders and privacy in each room.
Now, first things first. Before you embark on your selfie journey, you’ll need to plan your wardrobe so you can dress to impress. Selfie Wrld features private dressing rooms so you can showcase multiple styles to achieve your vision(s).
Here are some of our recommended looks for several top Selfie Wrld rooms.
Snag a cheeky holiday sweater at Forever 21 for a fun and festive Yuletide photo shoot. Paired with Santa Baby-worthy red lips and sparkly eye makeup, this can make for an epic holiday card photo. Or, if you’re on team Holiday PJs, opt for a cozy soft set from Aerie for a cute “holidays at home” themed picture.
With the power of a ring light and a simple yet mesmerizing background, all you need is an effortlessly chic look. Our pick for this room is the eternally cool combination of denim and leather. Head to Levi’s for some classic straight leg jeans and top off a simple solid cami or shirt with a black biker jacket from All Saints. Accessorize away for a complete ensemble.
The key here is to let the background do the talking. The playful set of swings and bold splattered paint backdrop are best complemented by a crisp, clean and comfortable look. We’d wear basics from Madewell or overalls from H&M for fun on-the-playground vibes (this is a great room for the kiddos). Bonus points if you add vibrant lipstick or eye makeup (check out Morphe!) for a punchy pop of color to match. All that’s left to do is swing!
For a set that appears to have been taken from a trendy lounge, we suggest dressing as if you’re ready for a night out on the town. Throw on a shimmery, luxe ensemble from Zara and a pair of party shoes from Aldo for a glitzy photo ideal for sharing on New Year’s Eve. No one will know if you actually stayed home on your couch (and, let’s face it: 2020 put us through a lot of feelings, so we wouldn’t judge!).
This Milkshakes & Dreams backdrop screams “Pink Ladies,” but you don’t need to go full costume to achieve a nostalgic look! Visit the Marie Robinson Salon for a retro ‘do, hop into a vintage-inspired dress from Free People, then stop by MAC or Morphe for a classic red lip a la Marilyn Monroe or a delicate eye wing and strawberry lip tint that would win Audrey Hepburn’s approval.
