When you are deciding on your color scheme just start with one color or outfit and work with that.
The one outfit will be your inspiration for the rest of the clothes.
There is a big difference in what to wear when you are going to the beach or to the park & forest. For the park/forest we will look for contrast and for the beach soft tones will work the best.
Tips for color schemes when you go to a green area like a forest or park:
Light and neutral colors always work good for my editing style. The light colors will create a contrast against the green and darker backdrop that we have while shooting in a park or forest.
Match with the colors of the season: for spring and summer take a neutral color and combine that with bright and contrast full colors like pink/yellow and bright blue. For fall and winter: take a neutral color and combine it with red tones, dark blue tones and darker yellow/orange will work nice. This will give a warm feeling to the image.
For a park or forest I also recommend long jeans to protect yourself from nasty bugs in the grass or trees.

Tips for color scheme when you go to a beach area:
For the beach pastel tones are a very good match.
Don’t make it to neutral and combine with pastel and soft tones
Airy and comfortable clothes and shoes are a GO for a beach session so you can move around free.
Take some comfy shoes or flipflops so you can walk easily in the sand or play in the water.
