Nothing is more rewarding than seeing our gorgeous members rocking their best Gwynnie Bee looks on the #ShareMeGB feed.
We love featuring our members so much, we’re launching an outfit of the day contest called #12DaysOfGB. Submit your best Gwynnie Bee winter look photo by tagging it on Instagram and Facebook with #12DaysOfGB (and don’t forget #ShareMeGB too!). Every day, we’ll choose one winner to receive gift cards and GB subscriptions.
If you’re ready to take your snaps to the next level — and win one of the cool #12DaysOfGB prizes — we’ve got 5 tips to help you up your outfit game. Follow these tips and who knows? We may even feature you on our own Instagram or here on the blog.
Ready to win? Read our tips below and start snapping:
1) Make It Your Own
Style and accessorize. Some dresses may stand alone, but we want to see your unique take on a look. We love to see your personality come through.
2) Location, Location, Location!
Consider your backdrop. When in doubt, a solid-colored wall will create the perfect canvas for your winning #OOTD to shine.
3) Lighting is Everything
Nothing beats natural, outdoor, lighting. Aim for soft, diffused light over direct sunlight or shadows.
4) Play Around
Show off your personality! Smile, play, have fun — it looks much more natural than a forced pose and feels more like you.

5) Work Your Angles
Shot straight forward at eye level shows off your whole outfit without distortion. A hand on the hip can be very flattering to curves, and try angling your hips away from the camera to create a nice S shape. Practice makes perfect!
A few final Pro Tips:
- Grab a friend. Ditch the selfie sticks and mirror selfies and switch off playing photographer.
- The best filter is #nofilter. Avoid using borders, heavy editing, and collages.
- For a true #OOTD, try to show at least 3/4 of the outfit.
- Beware of shadows, double images, and reflections. Nothing should stand out but your perfect style.
