Co-ordinating in Florals

Hey guys! Well, yes I know you've been wanting to read a bit of poetry and sneak into my kitchen recipes since a long time but what all I fed you this whole month was crazy fashion, but I promise I'll deliver you some good recipes and poems very very soon! But for now, I really wanted to introduce you to a style I've recently discovered (though its been on the ramp past a few years) but my job is to bring to you new styles through this blog, so here it is... a perfect set of co-ordinates or as we call it co-ords!

co-ordinates : | zipdown spaghetti : ZARA | heels : Inc.5
bag : Flea Market (Nepal) | watch : Felix | earrings : Gifted

This is a trend not all of you will love, but I have to admit, it’s one that I am very keen on! Matchy-matchy in co-ordinates, the season’s coolest combo. Quit clashing and update your look with uniform dressing - I'm talking of top to toe textures and plenty of printed pairings. For the trendiest two pieces, team tops – a boxy crop is best – with tailored trousers, shorts with shell tops and printed blazers with pencil skirts for a polished yet pretty take on the 2-in-1 trend. Recently reading the stalker magazine from, I came across lots of matching separates coming into the SBL website and researching upon the look I found out that its something that isn’t going anywhere! All the high-street stores from River Island, Zara and Oasis to Misguided and ASOS, all have some great styles in so there is no escaping this trend!

So because I never shy away from trying new styles, I got my hands on this pair of lemon yellow, floral printed cotton blazer and pencil skirt! Choosing from the wide range on is always a difficult task and I took about 20 minutes debating with myself but finally grabbed this set of co-ords. Its a pretty one and indeed colorful so perfect for a summer day-out or a light brunch session! I teamed it up with a black spaghetti inside and a pair of black low heels to keep it matching with my black danglers, after all its all about coordinating from top to toe! Only the color I added to match those blooming flowers on my skirt and blazer set was a red wrist watch & a maroon, vintage sling-purse, which is about a 25 years old, damn it! I wasn't even born when my mom got it from across the borders! Well, that's how I completed my look and the best part is that I realized I can carry it from day to night and attend day-meetings and a get together in the evening because neither these co-ords looked over-the-top not made me look under-dressed for any of the events!

Now, I'll just give you some quick tips on how you can nail this matchy-matchy trend :

1. You DON’T have to go for crop top and skirt to style this look. I know the thoughts of wearing a crop top make a lot of us very nervous, but there are lots of styles now that are not crop tops!
2. Pick a print, colour and style that you love and that can be mixed and matched through your current wardrobe. If you go for a printed co-ord set you can pair it with block colours and vice versa plain co-ords look great teamed with prints and colours.
3. It is so important when buying a set that you love BOTH parts of it. You need to get wear out of them as a matching set but also on their own. It it’s a skirt and top; think about how you would wear them on their own, same goes for a blazer and shorts or trousers!
4. Keep your bodies well toned and that bulging tummy tucked in while you choose to go in for a sexy pair of co-ords because hey, nobody is guilty of blaming you for the rest, else!

Matchy-matchy sets make choosing an outfit stress-free, while mix and match separates take the trend to a DIY level, so you can put your own spin on co-ordinate dressing. So, check out stalkbuylove's co-ords collection and look twice as nice in a two piece! This season we’ll be calling on the co-ord day or night; because hey it’s time to meet your match!
