An orange printed jumpsuit. Pointy-toed white pumps. Shoulder-skimming earrings and blue eyeliner. In the abstract, those things all sound rather intimating, no? Yet, styled together on Solange Knowles last night at Intermix's 20th anniversary celebration, the four elements totally worked—and not just because the singer is tall, lanky and has really great hair. (Although all of that certainly helped.) No, you too can easily pull off the look by following the tips in the slideshow below.

1. Make the onesie your outfit's main focus.

The key to making head-to-toe pattern work—whether in the form of a jumpsuit, maxi or brocade suit—is to accessorize judiciously.

Avoid big chunky necklaces, especially if you are petite: earrings or a few bracelets are a much safer bet.
