There is a certain type of small businesses wherein you will need to show off certain “looks” to entice people to do the same or something that’s remotely similar to it. Whether it’s about fashion designs, interior designs, or anything that others can either copy or draw inspiration from, a lookbook may be something that you can put to good use. Why should you use one? As mentioned earlier, it helps potential customers to gather up ideas, but that’s all it does and that’s what makes lookbooks different from catalogs, because the latter is actually used for placing orders.
With lookbooks, they are basically books that contain images of models showcasing trendy clothes or accessories, or it could also feature the interior aspects of a house to show what’s trendy when it comes to interior designs, and they are primarily made for scanning or “looking” purposes, hence the name. Catalogs, on the other hand, have the same contents with the exception of prices indicated on each product or set of products. Whatever purpose you’re going for, these lookbook templates may come in useful, so don’t hesitate to download any of them.

But this time around, let’s dig deeper into what lookbooks are and why they are relevant in our society. For those in the clothing industry, lookbooks are their tools for showcasing their collection, whether these are new or simply season-appropriate. However, since lookbooks are for “looking” purposes only, they do not directly influence readers to buy from their collection, but rather, inspire them to copy the style or invite them to visit their physical stores where they can purchase those pieces.

On the other hand, since we also featured lookbooks in this article that are intended for use by interior designers or those in the home improvement industry, they can also make use of lookbooks to showcase certain furniture pieces, decorations, wallpapers, paint colors, and everything related to beautifying homes. Just like lookbooks used by fashion designers, their’s don’t exactly tell readers to buy those specific pieces that are being featured on the lookbook, it simply inspires them to emulate the style or to gather ideas in order to pull off their own style.

Adding white space to a design can help in creating an organized look wherein the elements on the design are easily distinguishable from the others. Adding a lot of white space—and we do mean a lot—can create an even cleaner look which is perfect for those who prefer minimalism. However, if you do this with your design, you have two choices for your elements, you can either have them in contrasting colors to make them stand out, or you can also copy the lookbook template above by having the elements desaturated so they would blend in with all the white space. Either way, they WILL look good on your lookbook so don’t worry about it.

With regards to the cover page of your lookbook, it is very important to indicate the name of the stylist or the business itself and a logo if available. Other than those two elements, you should also indicate the name of the collection to give readers a first impression before they even start to go to the first page of your lookbook. If you have noticed from the templates that we have shown you, many of those featured specific seasons or years which are something that you may or may not include. And of course, an introductory cover image which can help in giving readers an idea on what to expect from the collection, though some designers would also prefer to use solid colors for their cover pages as opposed to actual images.

Enough with the cover page, let’s proceed to the internal pages of the lookbook. What are lookbooks without images of the featured products? There wouldn’t be anything to “look” as if there aren’t any photos, and this defeats the purpose of using lookbooks in the first place. When adding photos or images on the lookbook, you can either go with editorial style photos—those that are taken during photo shoots—or just simple photos of only the products, though many businesses prefer to use the former. For each featured product, you may want to include the name of the style, a serial or style number, type of material used, the available colors and sizes, and a wholesale price (optional). You may also see magazine portfolio templates.
Lastly, for the back cover of the lookbook, you may also want to add another full-page editorial style photo or you can just stick to a solid color for a much cleaner look. And on top of that layer, you can add another business logo, but make it smaller than the one that you used for the front cover. And then for the most important part of the back cover page, the business’ contact details which includes the URL for the company’s website or a URL for the social media page, phone number/s, email address, and maybe a QR code if there is one.

1. DO use high quality, professionally shot photos of the products or the models showcasing the products, and to achieve this, hire a professional photographer. This is very important since photographers know how to make every shot count, which is something that you would want to achieve when trying to show off your collection through lookbooks, every shot should count.
2. Aside from just hiring a professional photographer, DO hire a professional model as well. Seem costly? It doesn’t have to be. By professional models, we’re not talking about Victoria’s Secret Angels or those that you see on television, there are actually a lot of professional freelance models that you can find through social media or the internet, in general. Hire these models since they are well trained on how to make any product look good in front of the camera.
3. If you think those are the only two people that you will need to hire, you’re wrong, unfortunately. If you want to make the most out of your lookbooks, you would want to hire a professional hair stylist and makeup artist to fix up your model, so DO it. Oftentimes, you’ll be able to find a professional makeup artist that does hair styling as well, but if you are unable to do so, then you’ll probably be forced to hire one for each task.
4. If you plan on making your lookbook from total scratch, DO NOT attempt to do the graphic designing yourself. Just because you know how to work with Photoshop, it doesn’t automatically make you a graphic designer, let the professionals do it. However, if you’re working with downloadable templates such as the ones we are providing here, then feel free to edit them yourself.
5. As much as possible, DO NOT make the entirety of the lookbook using Word because the end product will look cheap, low quality, and unprofessional. You may probably use Word for certain aspects only such as adding textual elements, but for the rest of it, use programs which are capable of rendering high-quality results.
