Trend // Mix and Match Coordinates

One of the hottest trends to take off this spring is matching separates. It's all about coordinating your entire outfit and there has never been a bigger range of matching separates to choose from! All across the high street you can find simple tailored separates to more casual cropped outfits in bold and sometimes wacky prints. Whether you want to sharpen up your working wardrobe or liven up your street styling, there are coordinating outfits to suit everyone's taste and comfort zones.

If you are looking to ease yourself into the matching separates trend, go for a boxy top or jacket and matching tailored trousers in muted tones and patterns for a more refined yet fresh look that isn't too overpowering and suitable for working environments. Once you feel more comfortable wearing head to toe coordinated outfits, it's your chance to experiment with the range of patterns available such as stripes, animal print and florals; again you could play it safe with a ditsy print or go all out in an acid coloured statement print. The matching separates trend also lets you play with proportions and is a great way of wearing crop tops without flashing too much flesh by pairing it with high waisted bottoms. Matching crop tops with high waisted shorts or skirts will also be ideal for the summer months and will be easy to incorporate into your holiday wardrobes.

This trend really does place you in control; you choose how you want to wear it and how far you want to push the boundaries. If you still aren't sure about wearing matching separates together, try swapping either the top or bottom coordinate for a plainer alternative - that way you can still buy that coordinated outfit but swap around wearing just the top or bottom each time. If you are feeling particularly daring, mix your coordinates again, but this time with equally bold separates - clash different textures, colours and patterns together in one outfit to create an eye-catching style that all the fashionistas will be lusting after. This will give you a chance to really experiment with your wardrobe; having just 2 or 3 matching suits and outfits and mixing between them will provide you with numerous outfit choices to choose from - whether you want to mix or match your coordinates is up to you!

I've picked some of my favourite coordinating suits and separates that have caught my eye and even in that small selection there are so many varying colours, prints and styles - there are literally so many ways to work this versatile trend and I can see it holding out strong right into the summer months!

What do you think to the Mix and Match Coordinates trend? Will you be trying it out this spring?

  1. I love the co-ord trend at the moment! I'm liking the black and white striped one the most :)


  2. I adore this trend so much! You're so right, it's really versatile. Not only can you wear the separates together but you can piece them out and match them with different things. It's such a vintage concept i love it!
