For example, if you wear a red dress, you need not apply a red lip color or wear red shoes with it. Go for neutral tones if you can’t think of any other color to team it with. Stick to solids since they are easy to mix-and-match; tone-on-tone works well too. However, if feeling particularly adventurous and bold, try color-blocking.

Take a fashion-savvy friend’s help or the store stylist’s assistance if confused about the look. Choose with care.
