A basic color palette and go from there. It can help to have one person be the "Star" in the photo who carries a pattern in their outfit while keeping everyone else's outfits more simple. You can do this with a neutral and a few colorful brights or maybe a softer palette that has different tonal ranges of the same shade.
Colors are everywhere around us and bring things to life. Why not bring your images to life as well. Be sure the colors you use coordinate with each other and you don't end up looking like one big rainbow family. Choose 1-3 colors for your group portrait, ones with similar tones that go nicely together and have everyone work within that color palette. For example: dark green, navy, and burgundy- all dark jewel tones. Or tan, a lighter olive green and denims - all lighter, softer tones. If one person is wearing a print try to avoid putting someone else in a competing pattern. When thinking about texture, choose different ones that will give the photos more interest such as lace, corduroy, denim, etc. Avoid large logos because again these will distract attention from the subject. We want your faces and emotion to show.
Dress for the season and location
Coordinate and complement but not matchy-matchy
Layers and textures add detail and depth.
