INSPIRATION AND ADVICE

STYLISH GUYS IN COLOUR CO-ORDS

By Lakeisha Goedluck, 30 September 2017

A few years back, the idea of a two-piece combo would've instantly brought back memories of awkward childhood outfits. However, in 2017, the sartorially savvy know that co-ords are where it’s at. For a standout ‘fit that requires minimum effort, take a look at these guys in seriously slick matching sets for inspiration…

Oversized outfit

For AW17, it’s all about rocking oversized garms. To switch up your silhouette, opt for loose-fitting threads in bright colours as this guy expertly demonstrates. Follow his lead and go for a cropped, boxy jacket to really play around with shape. Understandably, he’s kept his accessories to a minimum, but peep the silver chain on his trousers which adds a punk element to his ensemble. Extra points for the aquamarine bowl haircut.

Camo cuts

Alongside the likes of houndstooth and tartan, camouflage is one of those timeless prints that you can don all year round. As it’s quite a striking pattern, make like this fella and go for a set in subdued colours. But notice the orange ribbon detailing adding a flash of colour, and how his turtleneck nicely offsets his loose-fitting bomber and wide-leg trousers. For a strong utilitarian finish, military-style boots are the one.

Short-sleeved steeze

It may be getting colder outside, but there’s no need to abandon your short-sleeved pieces just yet. As this street-styler shows, summer-ready co-ords in vibrant colours can brighten up the gloomiest of days. To make this look appropriate for autumn/winter, try wearing a white long-sleeved polo neck underneath or layer up with a longline overcoat in a dark shade. Throw on a leather belt to subtly divide the two halves and pop on some clean white kicks to keep things fresh.

Bold button-up

Now this guy looks proper cosy. This cobalt co-ord is just what you need for winter, as it’s easy to style with additional layers. Wear it buttoned up for a more refined look, and add in a stripy scarf that features the same shade as your garms to show that you’ve got skills when it comes to colour-blocking. Don’t forget your sturdy coat and heavy-duty boots to finish.

Novel neutrals

This fella’s combo is a work of art. Literally. His longline overcoat and matching off-white trews with rolled cuffs serve up serene, minimalist vibes, but it’s the Jackson Pollock-esque paint splashes that make his look. A classic white T-shirt worn underneath keeps his 'fit laid-back rather than too loud, especially when paired with equally popping creps.
