HOW TO DO PATTERNED CO-ORDS
By Lakeisha Goedluck, 27 March 2018
Breaking news: it’s still OK to wear matching pyjama-style sets outside of the house. For 2018, it’s all about standout co-ords – whether brightly coloured or in a striking pattern, they’re the perfect blend between luxe and laid-back. So, if you’re game to jump on the matchy-matchy trend, here’s a street-styler at Stockholm fashion week to expertly show you how it’s done.
The key to this trend is to go bold or go home (let’s ignore the fact you’ll be dressed like you already have gone home). A vibrant 80s-flavoured number is a solid shout, especially when teamed with a colourful coat. And for an in-your-face final flourish, eccentric accessories are the way to go.
To nail the look yourself, opt for a striped set in a brilliant-blue shade. A rose-pink borg coat will bring contrast and cosiness, while simultaneously adding a structural element to your outfit. Up the 80s vibes with clashing finishing touches – a canary-yellow bag and metallic chunky-soled sneakers should do the trick.
