So I was exploring ZARA yesterday and I discovered something while wistfully adding things to my cart — I'm obsessed with co-ord sets. For those who don't know what that is, they're matching sets of a top and either pants or a skirt. The can range from formal to casual, and you can pair the pieces with each other or mix and match them with the rest of your wardrobe. I wanted to share my top five co-ord sets for spring/summer, in no particular order, with you today in hopes that you're just as obsessed with these instant outfits as I am.
Jacquard Wrap Top & Trousers - $72
Everything about this styling is a huge yes, and I can say from personal experience that this set is super comfortable. I may have purchased it last night in preparation for my trip to New York in June. Sorry, mom. At least I didn't get the bag, shoes and earrings... yet.
Side Stripe Top & Joggers - $82
This one still sits in my ZARA cart, but how athleisure-chic is this look? ZARA does a great job with their online styling, but this green set speaks for itself. It's ten times better, and chicer, than wearing your gym clothes out to achieve that athleisure look.
Oversized T-Shirt & Jogging Pants - $66
Guess what? ZARA has it in black. And now so do I. This is another perfect set if you're going for an athleisure look. I tucked the top in when I tried it on so it didn't look like I just rolled out of bed. I picture this set working perfectly with the ugly dad sneaker trend and some bold earrings.
Satin Crossover Blouse & Wide-Leg Trousers - $100
I'm not a pink girl, but how perfect is this satin set for spring/summer? It would be perfect for a wedding with some heels and gold jewelry. The top would also look great with jeans for a more casual look. The great thing about these sets is that they're so versatile; they don't have to always be worn together as pictured.
Long Blazer with Belt & Flared Pants - $199
This last option is a suit but who cares? It's still a matching set and this mustard color is beautiful. I've been obsessed with this look ever since Danielle Bernstein of WeWoreWhat wore this outfit during NYFW. She paired them with Gucci's take on the dad sneaker trend and switched out the belt taking this look from high street to high fashion, in my opinion at least. I bought the pants for work/interview purposes and wait with bated breath for the blazer to go on sale.
What are your thoughts on the co-ord set trend? Let me know in the comments and share some of your favorite looks as well!
