Do you have a co-ord set that you have worn several times or maybe just once and didn’t know how to restyle? Then you are in luck because I’m showing you how I restyled my co-ord set.
I love co-ords. I mean, who doesn’t? You get two pieces that can be worn together or separately for the price of one.
There are different types of co-ordinates and I bought a few of the skirt and top combos over the years, though, I have done away with most of the blouses but kept the skirts. I purchased my burgundy co-ord set from my favorite store to shop two years ago. I hadn’t been interested in wearing it lately, because I didn’t want to show skin so I only admired it in my closet.
A thought came to my mind to style it with a bit of layering last weekend and it worked. I tried to pair it with a camisole and a basic white tee but those two options weren’t flattering enough. I went to my brother’s closet for some options and I took a white shirt. I wore it under the top and voila! As the shirt was clearly not my size, I folded the sleeves until it fit my arms. I think the colors complemented each other perfectly and brought some brightness to the entire outfit.
I paired the outfit with gold sandals and a gold purse to give it the right edge it needed. I accessorized with a gold wristwatch, gold bracelets, and pearl earrings. I couldn’t think of anywhere else more befitting to photograph the look than the street.
What do you think of the look?
Purse: Tommy Hilfiger
