1. Wear red, green, and/or a neutral color

When you think of Christmas, what colors come to mind? That’s right! Red and green. They are classic Christmas colors. A Christmas outfit, party, photo, card, or anything must have some red and green.

Neutral colors like white, black, or gray are great complimentary colors because they go with anything.
