If you're the type who's always at a loss when it comes to co-ordinating outfits, these guidelines will make it easier to dress, especially during a morning rush.

When it comes to color-co-ordinating clothes, many people just like to play it safe with black. It’s easy, simple, and it doesn’t require too much thought because many things go with black including the color itself—and not many other colors can do that well. However, black can get a tad boring if you’re wearing it day after day. These guidelines will make it easier to wear a variety of colors more frequently.
