You can mix patterns, but there is an art to it, so be careful! Make sure that if you mix patterns, like a striped tie with a check shirt, that the scale of patterns are not the same. If you are going to mix patterns, you want them to be very distinct from each other, with a common thread like one color.
Collars for both men and women should be chosen to compliment the scale of neck, shoulders and face.
For men: Think carefully about pleats versus flat front pants. Pleats can add a lot of excess and unwanted volume. Flat front pants are a cleaner look but in the wrong material can be too revealing.
For Women: When purchasing trousers, consider the pockets; if you are rounder in the hip and rear you may not want pockets, or find horizontal pockets. If you are smaller in the rear, vertical pockets and back pockets can be great.
