It can sometimes be tricky for some people, color matching being sometimes a way to a fashion disaster. Because of this it is always better to pick the smallest color details and try to match with that. For example, if you have a white dress with a small black embroidery you can choose a black necklace or bracelet to match it. Another way is to choose a color that does not have anything to do with the outfit, but still suits the theme of it. For example, if you wear a black dress, you can pair it with a red bracelet or red brooch.
