If you’re looking to refresh your wardrobe for fall, you can’t go wrong with a set of co ords. If you’re not familiar with the burgeoning trend, it refers to a coordinating top and bottom, whether it’s a blazer and skirt, crop top and culottes, tee and trousers, or any other set. It’s basically an entire outfit put together for you, with no work required on your part (well, you should probably pick out shoes). You can wear the matching pieces together for an extremely put-together vibe, but you can also maximize your budget by pairing each item up with other pieces in your wardrobe.
So whether you’re going back to school this fall or you want to update your office wear, consider a co-ord set. Many retailers are now not only carrying this trend, but even giving co-ords their own page on the online store. Zara, Asos, Missguided, and Forever 21 are just a few of the stores that offer tons of co-ord sets that will fit into most people’s budgets — since nobody wants to spend a lot of money on a trend that they’re not too sure about. Don’t worry though: Once you get your first matching set, you’ll never want to go back to picking out the right top to go with your pants ever again.
Here’s a round-up of 13 of the cutest co-ord sets that you can wear this fall no matter what your budget or size, from cozy ribbed sweater sets that you can wear to the office to co-ords with fun patterns and textures that you can pair with a warm jacket for a night out.
1. Cozy Stripes
These kind of look like comfy pajamas, but they’d be more than appropriate to wear to the office with a cute pair of T-strap ballet flats and some delicate jewelry. Then you can go home and nap in them!
2. Curve-Hugging Knits
This set manages to be super hot without showing much skin. Wear it on a date this fall when you want to look sophisticated and stylish but still show off your rocking bod.
3. From The Office To The Couch
This is another set that has a strong pajamas/loungewear vibe, and we’re all for it.
4. Sophisticated, Next-Level Sweats
5. Pantsuits: The Original Co-Ord Set
6. Colorful Stripes
7. Florals And Leather
Don’t be afraid to play with fun patterns! That’s half the beauty of co-ords: no need to worry about clashing patterns.
8. Winter Whites
Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day? This feminine blazer and shorts set (available in both regular and plus-size) would look great with black tights and a cat-eye: very mod.
9. Sporty Set
This adorable set will go with literally all of your fall shoes: Converse, ankle boots, ballet flats, Stan Smiths, you name it.
10. Play With Texture
The color, texture, and cut of this set will all contribute towards giving you a fresh, unique look this fall.
