I'm Not Surprised This Trend Keeps Selling Out—It's So Easy to Wear

We're all for an outfit that gives us extra time in bed each morning, and there's one trend this summer that is seriously snooze-friendly: the co-ord. This season, matching pieces have been reinvented. Most importantly, though, co-ords are an already-built outfit that requires little to no styling. Zara is currently offering tons of co-ord sets, so there is no shortage of chic two-pieces out there. Keep scrolling to see and shop our five favourite co-ord options right now.

1. Trouser and Crop Top

Co-ords are no longer just miniskirts and matching tops. In fact, one of our favourite iterations of this trend this year is a crop top worn with matching trousers. It labels Nanushka and Staud are into this too.

2. A Co-Ord That Looks Like a Dress

Any Who What Wear UK reader will know that dresses are big news this season, so we love co-ords that look like dresses (but are twice as clever as they can be worn separately). Laura Jackson's striped Lee Matthews co-ord is sadly sold out, but lucky for us, Zara has dozens of dress-like options.

3. A Wedding-Appropriate Maxi Skirt and Crop Top

Co-ords don't have to be reserved for the beach or music festivals. Here, Jessie Bush shows that the two-piece has been elevated this season. This outfit by Zimmermann consisting of a maxi skirt and a matching crop top is perfect for wedding season.

4. Knitwear Times Two

ASOS told us that knitted co-ords keep selling out almost instantly, and this microtrend is certainly gaining momentum. You can either opt for a cosy trouser set like Monikh, or if you're feeling braver, wear one of the many knitted shorts sets on Zara right now.

5. Duster Coat and Trousers
