Matchy-matchy two pieces are what the sartorial world called co-ords today. Recently, they have become the best trope in fashion. Although they were designed to be dressed together, they work equally great apart, more versatile than your cocktail dress or office suit and more practical than jumpsuits. Either you wear co-ords separately or matchy-matchy, they can be worn in many different looks and I’m just loving the co-ords trends. But how do we avoid looking like we have just stepped out from bed in pyjamas?? Because wearing matching sets can be quite tricky at times if you don’t pick up the right styles according to you body. So, here are some style tips for nailing this season co-ords trend. Read below:
WHAT I’M WEARING: I’m wearing zara’s co-ords, you can find here — Asymmetric Jacquard Skirt & Striped Jacquard Sweater and Kurt Geiger’s bag: SAFF HORIZ LONDON TOTE, White Sock Boots from HM (Sold Out) given some alternatives down below. Yellow jacket from Vintage Store (find alternatives below).
Here are some pretty co-ords I’m eyeing for Spring.
How to Style Co-ords or Matching Sets?
Chose the Right Size: Just because you are size 8, don’t simply pick up the sets that the store has displayed together. Experiment with sizes. Small size may fit you perfectly on top but size medium or x-small may fit better in bottoms depending on your body shape. Usually the co-ords can be purchased separately, so make sure you choose the perfect fit for both top and bottom.
Look for Versatility: Choose a style, colour and print carefully, so that they can be mixed and matched with your wardrobe. If the co-ords only work as matchy-matchy set, you may not get the full benefits of this trend. When buying a set, think how you would style them on their own, so it’s essential to love both pieces.
Pick a Flattering Shape & Cut: Different styles have been designed to enhance or conceal where required to flatter one’s shape. So, ensure to chose the cut and style you would be comfortable and compliments your personality. For instance, If you have a big bust, avoid tops with ruffles and frills because they will make you look bigger by giving extra volume to the bust area. A tailored jacket is a great idea for women with narrow shoulders to add some structure to your frame.
