I Think These ‘Instant Outfits’ Are the Best Things to Buy This Summer



If you thought that co-ords were appropriate for the under 21’s heading out to V Festival, think again. This season we’ve been inundated with rather grown-up summer co-ords that are practical for every day. The glory of these matchy-matchy pieces is the full outfit is already styled up and ready to go for you, not to forget you can also create additional outfits wearing each piece separately. It’s really a win win situation.

It was Faithfull The Brand that initially put me in full holiday mode with their variations of crop tops and matching linen trousers that suddenly made summer sets desirable. Rixo and Nanushka also introduced matching prints within their collections that enable you to shop numerous pieces that can be styled as sets. Their prints feel much more elevated and suited to everyday wear, and not just for the poolside or a party setting. If prints are one-step too far for you then & Other Stories has a super chic answer in the form of an all beige trouser and tank duo that’s an ideal travel look (minus the styling-stress).

We’re not alone either, keep scrolling to see how our favourite girls are wearing this trend for summer and shop some of our top co-ords.

Style Notes: A white linen co-ord is the height of chic. A straw sun hat is always the perfect partner to linens and this season we’re spoilt for choice. 

Style Notes: A printed short and shirt set is the original summer co-ord and it’s back this year. Team with fun, colour clashing accessories for the ideal vacay-look. 

Style Notes: Opt for a grown up co-ord by wearing matching chunky knits as Monikh has. A great travel look for long haul flights or a comfortable weekend look.

This print gives us Princess Diana vibes.
