THIS is the week that ‘co-ords’ took the stress out of dressing!


Hey busy-girls! Looking to bag yourself a bonus lie-in? Yeah you are.

Then behold the co-ord, the easiest trend, like, evs. It takes the stress out of what-goes with-what wardrobe dilemmas, giving you more time to snooze.

It’s a look celebrities are ALL OVER: from J-Lo in a tropical bralet and shorts, to Kim K who keeps hers simple and ‘klean’ in block colours, or Taylor Swift who favours a printed combo.

So what’s so special about a co-ord? It’s all down to fashion maths. Either wear them together or mix and match with other wardrobe staples to maximize your wearage! You could wear the top and some ripped jeans one day or the shorts with a plain vest or tee and blazer another day. In fact, this might just be your holiday packing pal – twice the looks for the price of one. Boom.

Top tips for nailing a co-ord in any season:

  1. Make sure if you go for a crop top, it stops in the right place – you want to highlight your best bits and those abs you’ve been working on all year.
  2. If you’re mixing prints – make sure they don’t clash. Take spots and stripes, say, or pick colours that co-ordinate, literally.
  3. Use the co-ord to your advantage – if you’re blessed with hips, balance them out with peplum or flared trousers. Bootylicious bum? Celebrate in a skintight skirt!
  4. Can’t pull off a print? No sweat! There are plenty of block coloured co-ords out there.
