The biggest fashion conundrum is 'what goes with what?' What kind of jewellery to wear with certain outfits, what are the best colours to coordinate, and the combinations to be avoided, what shoes to wear with different trouser styles, what's in fashion and does it really matter? And how do you maximise your looks without blowing your budget -- and your wardrobe space?
