If there's one thing I know to be true, it is that choosing what to wear in the morning can be a difficult task. I'm always looking for new ways to simplify the process and eliminate the perpetual choice paralysis. This is why I am a huge advocate of the recent co-ord trend, which basically does the decision making for you.
From Ganni to Stine Goya, Faithfull to & Other Stories, this season, several brands have created stylish shirt-and-shorts coordinating sets that make getting dressed that much easier. Between the polka-dot patterns, linen fabrics, and frilled iterations, there is a style out there for every aesthetic, which means that no matter your preference, there is likely a co-ord for you.
And it seems I am not the only one who is championing the trend, as several influencers have been seen sporting coordinating sets this summer. The beauty of a shirt-and-shorts set is that the items can be worn together to create a fuss-free, foolproof outfit, yet each piece can also be worn individually as a part of alternative outfits, allowing you to experiment with other styles.
So from Sleeper's linen set to Ganni's checked two-piece, keep scrolling to see and shop shirt-and-shorts sets we are loving this summer.
See how influencers are styling the trend:
Style Notes: Never one to shy away from colour, Zeena opts for this matching pink set by Stine Goya, which is just perfect for sunny summer days.
Style Notes: This Faithfull the Brand set has summer written all over it, not only because of its linen fabric but also because of its cheery yellow hue.
Style Notes: For a minimalist approach, opt for a shorts set in a neutral tone, just like Brittany Bathgate has done here.
Style Notes: Sleeper makes chic sleepwear that is just too nice to wear solely to bed. Rachael Clifton proves just that by wearing the brand's yellow lounge set for a day at the beach.
Style Notes: Cult brand Ganni knows a thing or two about creating a trending item. It's created a few printed co-ords lately, ranging from checks to polka dots.
Style Notes: This Cult Gaia shorts set is perfect for the beach over your swimsuit—or for lounging on the sofa and weekends park hopping.
Style Notes: Another fan of the Sleeper set. Styling the co-ord with one button done up is an instant way to add edge to the style.
