Photography by Angie Monson


  1. Coordinating colors
  2. Layer up with colors and small patterns that pop
  3. Textures like wool, knits, and corduroy add warmth to photos
  4. Mix it up with plaids and solids
  5. Utilize accessories: cardigans, belts, jewelry, fun socks, and hats


  1. Matchy-matchy: remember the all denim in the 80’s?
  2. Big brand logos
  3. Neon colors—they create a color cast and do not print well
  4. Large patterns and distracting accessories
  5. Hats that shade or hide your eyes
