When coordinating clothing items, make sure that only one is the focal point. Another thing to look for is the style of each piece and how they blend harmoniously together. Color and texture are also very important when pairing.
This is why I love separates more than a one piece dress for instance. You can get more wear out of them and you can create so many different looks if you know what to mix them with. In this outfit I went for a semi casual cocktail dress look.
