Pick a palette of 3-4 colors.

Think in terms of tones: blue tones, earth tones, neutrals, pastels, etc. Everyone can express their own sense of style within the chosen color palette.

  • Avoid obvious brands, logos, advertisements, and busy patterns.

  • Avoid neon and bright colors.

  • Stick to solid, muted colors–earthy tones, muted gem tones, monochrome, beige, and taupe are great examples.

  • Keep colors complementary as opposed to completely matching (e.g. all white shirts and blue jeans).

  • Keep accessories and jewelry simple, or skip it altogether.

  • Wear your hair how you like it, but typically stay away from ponytails. Typically, the looser and more flexible the style, the better!

  • Avoid baseball caps and sunglasses.

  • Consider the season, weather, and environment.
