Do and Don't: Adjacencies

DO: Mannequins showcasing the dress collection is fully supported by merchandise found adjacent to it, sharing the same colour story and similar styles.
DON'T: A feature display such as the one shown on the mannequin sets an expectation that items similar to it can be found in adjacent units. However, in this case, the adjacent racks show casual T-shirts. Where can one find similar dresses? Waaaay at the back of the store, nowhere near the display.
