What should I wear to an acting audition?

Acting Tips for Aspiring Actors

What to wear to an acting audition can depend on a few different factors, including the type of audition, the role you're auditioning for, and the company or casting director's preferences. However, here are some general guidelines that can help you make a good impression:

1. Dress appropriately for the role: Consider the character you're auditioning for and choose an outfit that reflects that role. For example, if you're auditioning for a lawyer, you might wear a suit or professional attire. If you're auditioning for a character who is more casual, you might wear jeans and a t-shirt.

2. Dress simply: Avoid wearing anything too distracting or flashy that might take the focus away from your performance. You want the casting director to be focused on your acting, not your clothing.

3. Dress comfortably: Auditions can be nerve-wracking, so make sure you wear something that makes you feel confident and comfortable. Avoid anything that is too tight, too loose, or might make you self-conscious.

4. Avoid logos or branding: Stay away from clothing that has large logos or branding on it. You don't want to appear like you're trying to promote a brand or distract from your performance.

5. Research the company's preferences: If you have any doubts about what to wear, do some research on the company or casting director. You can check their website or social media pages to get a sense of their style and preferences.

Remember that dressing appropriately and professionally can help you make a positive first impression, but ultimately, your acting skills and performance are what will make the biggest impact.
