Remember the days when we were kids and our mums used to dress us in matching outfits? A lot of the time they’d be covered in sickeningly sweet butterflies or flowers and we all swore never to be caught dead in them again once we were old enough to dress ourselves.

Well, we’ve got news for you: Co-ords are back, and we can’t get enough of them.

Despite pledging never to don anything that dorky again, co-ords are bigger than ever. From Kim Kardashian to fashion bloggers, it seems as though everyone is jumping on the matching band wagon.  It’s a trend you can’t afford not to try! With summer finally here, it’s time to rid your wardrobe of the heavy coats and knits and treat yourself to some new purchases. Whether you’re a monochrome manic or crave a burst of colour to your wardrobe, here’s how to kill it in co-ords.

The Monochrome Edit

Summer is the season of dressing less like a mummy and more fun and flirty. While bright colours aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, that doesn’t mean you can’t look fabulous. Our favourite this season is the Love and Lemons Black Matador co-ord. Inspired by traditional Spanish lace, the pair comprise of a crop top and tasselled skirt that is designed to get you noticed.  Pair with ankle boots for a laid back daytime look or wear with heels for stylish and sophisticated evening wear.

However, if channelling your inner sporty spice is more your thing, then you love this Adidas co-ord. Coming in both leggings and shorts, crop tops and t-shirts, this co-ord allows you to mix and match for your own personal style and comfort. Throw on a pair of trainers for easy to style look where two become one.

Flash Flood of Colour

It’s always fun to inject a bit of colour into our wardrobe from time to time, especially during the summer time. And no one does colour like Ruth Erotokritou. As worn by the gorgeous Megan Mckenna, this multicoloured knit co-ord is the perfect summer addition to your wardrobe. Comfortable and lightweight, the co-ord can be mixed and matched with other items in the collection to be tailored to your unique sense style. Wear with sandals for the perfect beach outfit or a pair of heels for understated glamour.
