Avoid Matchy Matchy
You want to coordinate, not match. That means colors and styles that go together and don’t compete with each other.
Mix Styles & Textures
Use different styles and textures of clothes, for example, a knit sweater, a button-down shirt, a jersey blouse. Neutral bottoms are always a safe bet: dark denim, gray, khaki, brown, or black.
Accessories & Pops of Color
Accessorize with a pop of color. Scarves, bracelets, belts, necklaces, ties, hats, etc. Of course, you just need one or two of those per person! One caution is to avoid super trendy accessories.
Utilize Colors & Tones
Multiple colors are fine, but stick to three main colors and their different tones. Tones are a great way to stay with a similar color but mix it up so you aren’t all the same.
Remember Little Details
Avoid using graphic tees, sunglasses, sneakers, chipped nail polish, and white athletic socks (don’t think socks won’t show!)
