Chic and comfortable co-ords to kick start your summer wardrobe

by Holly O'Neill
21st May 2020

The lazy way to look luxe? Wear a cosy, matching co-ord

Who would have thought the humble tracksuit would be the most trending item of the first quarter of 2020? Having exhausted all the loungewear I own, my appetite for real clothes has started back up, but I just want to wear clothes that require absolutely no effort but feel like summer.

Enter, the co-ord; satisfying in equal parts for the ability to take all the faff out of figuring out what to wear while also making you feel like a well-dressed toddler.

Right now, the high street is heaving with them. There’s a soft ribbed knitted camel duo from Topshop that is essentially luxury loungewear, a ditzy daisy print set from & Other Stories that looks straight out of the Watermelon Sugar music video, plus a host of brightly-coloured crisp and airy twin pieces.
