It’s important to plan outfits where the top and bottom complement each other.
If you’re wearing a loose shirt, try pairing it with tight pants, and if you’re wearing wide-leg pants or a full skirt, consider partnering it with a fitted or cropped top.
Make it stop. A sale shouldn’t always be a cue to buy something. If you have been waiting for a particular product to go on sale, sure, pick it up, but if it’s a random dress you want just because it is on discount, ask yourself if you’d buy it if it wasn’t on sale.
You have your answer.
But think twice about pairing intense hues with black, which "can look dated”.
For something punchier, try two colors that are beside each other on the color wheel, such as coral and orange.
