Nicole Warne: How to Wear the Co-ord Trend

Co-ord trend looks creatively fashionable and perfectly polished. If you’re having trouble with mixing outfits and coordinating colors, let’s take some inspiration from Nicole Warne, a Sydney-based blogger behind the Gary Pepper blog, in dressing with a sense of understated elegance and a simple yet refined fashion style.

Nicole loves playing with different colors, prints, and textures, but doesn’t like to overcomplicate things. So, for the easiest take on co-ord trend, opt for matching sets in creative prints to spice up your street looks effortlessly. Besides the well-known co-ord combination crop top and pencil skirt, there’re lots of options, like trousers and blouses, skirts and boxy crops and shorts and blazer. Nicole opted for classic prints like stripes, floral, plaids, checks, and even novelty or quirky prints. If you choose to wear bold, vibrant prints, keep the rest of your outfit simple. Just polish your outfit with a neutral pair of shoes in the shades of black, brown, white, gray, or go for a shade similar to your printed pieces to keep your looks coordinated.

If you’re not a fan of matching patterns and prints, then simply opt for a solid colored ensemble to match your printed piece. For instance, Nicole simply goes for a blue-colored blazer to match her striped pencil skirt and a yellow cardigan for a yellow baroque dress. This way, you keep your looks simpler but still, statement-making.

Pairing ensembles with similar shades looks creative and stylish too. Be inspired by Nicole’s outfit combination of a neon yellow blazer with a pair of neon yellow wide-leg pants, and knitted top with fruit design, and a pairing of white lace blouse with white palazzo pants. The result is well-coordinated outfit with a great choice of coordinating colors. Still, if looking for a great pair seems challenging for you, then simply opt for a green coat and match it with classic green pumps to make a statement like Nicole did.

Tricky but creative, wearing the co-ord trend by teaming similar textures, structures, and silhouettes are stylish. Like Nicole, she opted for a white drapey and diaphanous top for a high-fashion statement. But, instead of taming its structure with a fitted pencil skirt or a shift maxi skirt, she doubled the statement by going for a similar skirt with diaphanous structure and drapey feel. Still, the result is stylish and creative even if it’s in the muted shade. To make it look more street syle-friendly, go for knitted outfits that can still make a statement when styled accordingly. Aside from the soft, warm and comfy feeling they give us, the knits are the best fabric when it comes to texture.

If you wish to double the fun in wearing the co-ord trend with eye-catching prints, interesting cuts, and ribbed textures, you’ll certainly be one of the greatest street style stars to admire.
