No fashion professional can avoid this trend in summer 2023: Co-ords are one of the biggest trends of this year's summer season. And this despite the fact that the fashion trend has actually been around for ages. Co-ords is a set consisting of a top and matching trousers or other bottoms.
So we already know the co-ord trend from pantsuits, bikinis and pajamas. But now you can wear two-piece suits in any form and for any occasion - as can be seen, for example, on "Barbie" star Margot Robbie (32) on the red carpet: in a sexy combination of a pink and white checked bustier top and matching mini skirt.
Ability to combine is everything with this fashion trend: the term co-ords refers to an outfit that consists of two or more pieces that are perfectly matched. The term is an abbreviation of "Coordinated Outfit" - which translates as "coordinated outfit".
Typically, a co-ords outfit consists of a top, matching pants, skirt, or shorts. You can also complete the outfit with a matching coat or jacket. Similar to the monochrome trend, the individual parts should definitely match in terms of colour, pattern and style and create a harmonious overall picture.
Co-ords have become a popular styling option among fashion experts as they are very easy to style and with just a few moves and decisions you can create a stylish and coordinated outfit. Co-ord sets are now available in a wide variety of fabrics and patterns.
If you want to prove your sense of trend this summer, it is best to invest in a shirt and shorts combination made of linen - either in muted colors such as cream white or beige or in bright colors such as red, orange, green or yellow. The alternative to this is a co-ords outfit with a floral pattern, such as a maxi or midi skirt combined with a crop top.
