Co-ords have made casual summer dressing oh-so-easy. Not only are co-ords easy to style — because they come pre-styled, in a way. But matching sets are the perfect ’90s throwback (think Cher’s snazzy yellow checkered co-ord from Clueless or Karisma Kapoor’s fits from Dil Toh Pagal Hai) and make for great day-to-night ensembles. Moreover, they can also be used as separates when needed.  

The matchy-matchy aesthetic is fun and breezy and can also make a statement. The best part about this trend is that it has taken over ethnic styling and athleisure wear as well! And A-listers sure do love a well-matched co-ord set. If you’re still on the fence, here are some looks that can influence you.

Easy going loungewear and athleisure

Going to the gym or just hanging out with friends at home? Well, then loungewear or athleisure co-ords are the ultimate choice! Dusk Attire’s dreamy pyjama and robe-style co-ord is peak brunch attire. Aastey’s sports bra and gym tights combo is comfy and also works for errand runs. 

Deck up the ethnic way

Ethnic co-ords are spunky and can be your go-to staple for summer weddings. Instead of heavy sequins or zardosi work, you can go for some homegrown artisanship or handlooms. Khushi Kapoor’s Arpita Mehta co-ord set, for instance, features a Sand Butti print skirt and bralette and a classic mirror work jacket, that breaks the monotony.

Keep it casual

If you’re vibing with monochrome fits this summer, casual co-ords can be your biggest fashion allies. Mimi Chakraborty’s lavender, tie-up co-ord set by Misaki Clothing pares down the resort wear memo to make it more versatile. While Obleka’s blue co-ord set features a straight-fit shirt and relaxed pants which offer an anti-fit silhouette. 

Party co-ord style!

Crazy about funky prints? Then these co-ords will be a dream come true for you. PHUE’s blue waistcoat and wide leg pants co-ord set screams high-fashion, while Advait’s abstract printed cropped shirt and skirt co-ord is playful and fun. 

For the sun and sand

The co-ord has been a breakthrough for resort wear because it’s much easier to make a statement in them. From wrap skirts and scarf tops to kimono sets and co-ordinated two-pieces, the co-ord trend is taking swimwear by storm. Guapa’s Maui scarf bandeau and Maui A line mini co-ord set are made from cupro chiffon and will have you island-ready in minutes!
