Here are few points to keep in mind so as to look great in co-ords:

1. Mind the Gap

There should be a minimal midriff showing up, to look elegantly stylish. The wide baring looks shoddy and can actually drive all attention from co-ords to your belly.

2. Waist it Simple

Keep the waistline simple! A simple co-ordinate, itself is chic enough. Avoid adding unnecessary detailing such as belts, pleats, frills etc. Also, keep away from overstated structured silhouettes. Instead, look out for chic prints, high quality fabrics and textures.

3. Fitting Matters

Absolutely! It is important to consider silhouette and fitting. An unfitted pair of coordinates can take down the whole look. Make sure that both counterparts are well fitted and flatter your body. A pencil skirt looks great, but with an ill sized top, it looks inevitably shabby and cheap.

6. Flat belly

Flat belly is a must to carry co-ords well. A ‘muffin’ top can spoil the entire look of the ensemble. The only co-ords that is not significantly affected by your belly is – a pair of matching blazer and trouser. If you don’t have a flat belly, just avoid crop or shorter tops co-ords.

Mismatch the Matching Set

Be a little creative and add your own personal spin. If you feel the ensemble is too much coordinated and you are not convinced to carry the trend, then here’s a solution – Mismatch the co-ords for the relaxed look. For instance, why not team a printed pencil skirt with a top in a hue picked from the print. This way you can play safe and avoid it looking busy. Remember, there should be a common string between the ensemble otherwise the essence of the co-ords will be lost.
