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

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

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.
