If there's one trend I'm loving this season it's the co-ord trend, and as you can see I'm especially loving it when it comes in the form of a full midi and crop or a little short suit. To be honest this trend is way out of my comfort zone, as I've never been one for the "matchy matchy" look or lots of colour, I have a very monochromatic wardrobe so if I do wear any colour it tends to be teamed with a simple black skirt or jeans. I keep seeing pretty patterned and floral co-ords popping up everywhere at the moment though and I find myself lusting after them more and more.
As much as I love the midi skirts and matching tops, I think it might be a little easier to dip my toes in the co-ord waters with a little short suit, as this can be broken up with a simple white vest or sleeveless blouse. I'm especially loving the Oasis one, as the kimono style jacket gives it a more casual and comfy look and it could be easily dressed down with a pair of flat tan sandals as well as dressed up for night with a few statement jewels and heels.
What do you think of the co-ord trend? I'd love to see if or how you'll be wearing it this summer.
