This week, we’re learning how to style your own co-ords. What  exactly are co-ords? When your top and bottom perfectly coordinates. The beauty of the summer’s new trend is that, when you buy a co-ord, you essentially get three outfits in one.

Styling Your Co-Ords

Step 1: Well, of course you should wear the duo together. Make a statement and make it loudly by showing the world that sometimes it’s okay to be matchy-matchy. Though, be sure that the print is flattering for you and appropriate for the season and the weather; ie: don’t wear colorful palm trees on a rainy night. It’s good to have options– co-ords for the daytime, co-ords for outdoors, co-ords for a date. Not all combos come in crop-top/skirt form like the one above.

Step 2: Ditch the top! No, no, we’re not condoning a topless day out on the town. Just a little switcheroo to make the outfit (and your money) go a bit further! Instead of a head-to-toe black and white ensemble, maybe you want to throw a some color in and wear it differently. Your new addition can make the outfit more dressy or more casual– like the look below– depending on the occasion.

Step 3: Swap the pants for a skirt, the skirt for some shorts, or the shorts for some pants. Because sometimes usually, polka dots on polka dots can be a bit overwhelming. Swapping out your bottoms allows for much more wiggle room for multiple occasions. You can wear the same top to a concert one week, and a job interview the next. Just substitute that destroyed denim for a pair of tailored pants and you’re ready to go!

For our extra-daring fashionistas, take a co-ord top and co-ord bottom from two different sets and fuse the two looks. Black and white doesn’t just match with black and white. Have some fun with color. Throw in a mix of prints and shades to create an eye-popping effect.

Don’t be afraid to do some additional coordinating with your co-ords, and your summer will look brighter than ever!
