8 luxury co-ord sets to make it easier to get dressed this spring

by Erin Lindsay
05th Mar 2020

Spring has sprung, but our motivation to get dressed is still stuck in the dark. The co-ord, though, is here to be our saving grace

Anything that makes getting dressed in the morning easier gets my vote. Don’t get me wrong, I adore clothes — I love putting together outfits, and saving every colourful thing under the sun to my Instagram — but when you’re dragging yourself out of the leaba at 6:30 am, motivation to style a wickedly-cool-while-simultaneously-looking-like-you-didn’t-try-too-hard outfit is at an all-time low.

I just want something to throw together that instantly looks, well, put together. And the runways agree — midi dresses have been all the rage the past few years on the high street, with ease-of-styling the main thing on every fashion girl’s mind. And now? We’re returning to the co-ord to save our lazy dressing ways.

Yes, co-ords are seperate pieces, but that doesn’t mean trying to come up with an outfit to pair them — a top-and-skirt combo (or trousers, whatever you’d rather) is as easy as a good midi to put on, but gives you the freedom to mix things up as well. If you’ve got a gorgeous printed co-ord, pair the bottoms with a white t-shirt one day, or the top with your favourite blue jeans. You’re adding a litany of new options to your wardrobe, while keeping the one paired outfit as a standby for days when you can’t even put your shoes on the right feet.

High street options are aplenty, but this time round, the luxury options by way of Net-a-Porter caught our eye. Co-ord sets from Maje, Alexa Chung and Faithfull the Brand have us very excited for summer, to style them up in a variety of ways.
