- Pair odd dark colors.
- Pair a classic with a subversive.
- Match your tights to your boots.
Put dark colors that aren't matchy matchy together. Think of pairing colors like chocolate brown with purple. This may seem a bit off but when you actually try it out you will be amazed at the results.
You can instantly dress up your classic tailored jacket by putting on your loudest print tee underneath it. You can also get the look by wearing a turtleneck in a bright color under your dressy jacket.
If you are wearing dark boots try pairing them up with dark, opaque tights too. This will seem more glamorous and make your legs look longer.
This trick also works with light colored boots and light or sheer stockings.
