Wardrobe guidelines for hosts

We are delighted that you will be filling an On-Camera Host role for HxGN LIVE Global 2023!

There are numerous considerations that go into an on-camera video production, and wardrobe selection can be straightforward if certain guidelines are followed. Certain patterns, colours and shapes ‘perform’ better than others, and we want to make sure that you look your best.

Please consider the following:

  • Business casual attire
  • Refrain from wearing fabrics that wrinkle easily
  • Keep jewelry to a minimum, avoiding large, noisy or reflective pieces
  • Natural makeup - avoid dark and/or glossy shades
  • Please be aware of how your attire sits when in seated and standing positions
  • Please avoid:
    • Plain white because on camera it exposes in high contrast to other elements on the screen
    • Black and dark tones
    • Glossy or metallic fabrics that may reflect and appear distracting on camera
    • Fabrics with tight patterns like stripes, herringbone and houndstooth
  • We recommend:
    • Opting for pastels and pale (gray or light blue) tones, if possible, as these tend to photograph well on video camera.
    • Medium-earth tone colors like muted greens / blues and browns
    • Please avoid warm tones like pink, red, orange

We are looking forward to the event and appreciate your time and talent – thank you!
