These Shirt-and-Shorts Co-Ords Make Getting Dressed So Much Easier

If there's one thing I know to be true, it is that choosing what to wear in the morning can be a difficult task. I'm always looking for new ways to simplify the process and eliminate the perpetual choice paralysis. This is why I am a huge advocate of the recent co-ord trend, which basically does the decision-making for you.

From Sleeper to Bondi Born, Zara to & Other Stories, several brands have created stylish shirt-and-shorts coordinating sets that make getting dressed that much easier this season. Between the floral patterns, linen fabrics, and frilled iterations, there is a style out there for every aesthetic, which means that no matter your preference, there is likely a co-ord for you.

And it seems I am not the only one who is championing the trend, as several influencers have been seen wearing coordinating sets already this summer. The beauty of a shirt-and-shorts set is that the items can be worn together to create a fuss-free, foolproof outfit, and each piece can also be worn individually as a part of alternative outfits, allowing you to experiment with other styles.

Best Short and Shirt Sets: @emmanuellek_



Style Notes: This set has summer written all over it, not only because of its linen fabric but also because of its cheery yellow hue. 

Style Notes: For a minimalist approach, opt for a shorts set in a neutral tone, just like Brittany Bathgate has done here. 

Style Notes: Sleeper makes chic sleepwear that is just too nice to wear solely to bed. Rachael Clifton proves just that by wearing the brand's yellow lounge set for a day at the beach. 

Best Short and Shirt Sets: Stine Goya



Style Notes: Never one to shy away from colour, Zeena Shah opts for this matching pink set by Stine Goya, which is just perfect for sunny summer days.

Style Notes: This Cult Gaia shorts set is perfect for the beach over your swimsuit, lounging on the sofa or park hopping on the weekends.

Style Notes: Another fan of the Sleeper set. Styling the co-ord with one button done up is an instant way to add edge to the style.
