- Be Tonal: Black, gray, and white are all universally flattering.

- Crop Up: Pairing a same color or patterned crop top and skirt is one of the easiest ways to pull off this look.
- Go Simple: Jumpsuit or a croppy-skirted combo a little too bold? Try an oversized tee. It’s easy to transform into a monochrome outfit.
- Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize: Flow may be the main characteristic of this look, but breaking it up with contrasting accessories can do wonders.
