When using attributes and variations what is the suggested method when one has several products and each product has different color options.
For instance, let's say a store had Hats, Tees, and Pants. The hats options are red, green and blue. The Tees options are black, white, and grey. And the pants color options are orange, purple, and yellow.
Would it be best to make one attribute called Color and put all of the colors in it, then go to each product and remove the colors not needed?
Would it be best to create three separate attributes (Hat colors, Tee Colors, Pants Colors), with each one containing the color combo above? Then assign the attributes appropriately.
As well as several others, but all articles only assume you have one set of colors for all products.
Grateful for any suggestions out there!
