As we're sure you're aware by now, we can't get enough of co-ords, matching sets and coordinates; however you wish to call them. Co-ords are a fashion trend that will never outdate, in our opinion, as they've been a recurring resurgence! The trend isn't just made for the style-conscious millennials, it's been a thing that dates back to renaissance fashion in the 1600's; when Elizabethan ladies wore separate matching bodices and skirts (see Image A). Then some other iconic past examples include tailored skirt suits of the 60's (see Image B) and daring double denim of the 80's and 90's (see Image C & D). It's bizarre to think that double denim has become a controversial concept of the 21st century, yes it's not for the faint hearted, but honestly there's nothing cooler than embracing your inner popstar!

Trends may come and go, but it's evident that co-ords have made a strong appearance across several generations and potentially many more to come. Co-ords are more than just a trend, they're a form of self-expression and empowerment as they give us the opportunity to curate our own personal style. Co-ords enable us to create seamless looks whilst also giving us the freedom to wear them as separates, where we can experiment with additional accessories and colour. Essentially, we are given the control to produce multiple outfits from one humble set. With today's desire for sustainable fashion, co-ords work in favour as they reduce the risk of excessive shopping and they encourage us to make do with what we already own. Co-ords are fun, functional and convenient; so we're here to show you the very best of our newest collections...
