Trend Report: Matching Co-Ords
Now that January is FINALLY behind us (good riddance) we can really start really thinking the Spring/ Summer season ahead. With that in mind, we are going to be working away through all the big Spring/ Summer (SS15) trends that will be making fashion waves this year!
Spring/ Summer 2015 Trends: Co-Ords/ Matching Separates
First up… Co-Ords or Matching sets. The dress has taken a back seat this season and right now it’s all about separates – Skirts/ Tops/ blazers/ trousers/ culottes/ shorts!! And matching ones for that matter!
This is a trend not all of you will love, but I have to admit, it’s one that I am very keen on! Towards the end of last year we saw lots of matching separates coming into stores and it’s a look that isn’t going anywhere! All the highstreet stores from River Island, Zara and Oasis to Misguided, ASOS and Warehouse all have some great styles in so there is no escaping this trend 😉

How to Wear Co-Ords
Here’s some top tips and style advice for nailing this season “matchy matchy” trend!
- You DON’T have to go for crop top and skirt to nail this look. I know the thoughts of wearing a crop top make a lot of us Irish ladies very nervous, but there are lots of styles now that are not crop tops!!!
- Pick a print, colour and style that you love and that can be mixed and matched through your current wardrobe.
- If you go for a printed co-ord set you can pair it with block colours and vice versa plain co-ords look great teamed with prints and colours
- It is so important when buying a set that you love BOTH parts of it. You need to get wear out of them as a matching set but also on their own. It it’s a skirt and top., think about how you would wear them on their own, same goes for a blazer and shorts or trousers.
The Style Fairy’s Best Buys
I love this two piece set from ASOS – This is so dressy, perfect for an occasion. Looks like a dress but you’ll get lots of wear out of these pieces separately too! Imagine this skirt worn with just a simple cami top in navy/cream/ baby blue/ green/ purple! Fab!!
Flashing a little flesh with this next ASOS two piece, but not a lot. Gorgeous colour combination
This is just a small selection of options available in River Island, they have some other fab options, see them all here.
