Coord sets - the fashion trend that’s here to stay
A coord set is an outfit where the top and bottom have the same colour and print. It’s coordinated, basically. And the bottom can be trousers, jeans, leggings, joggers or even a skirt. If it matches the top, it’s a coord set. And it is all the rage right now.
The look is certainly not new - Bollywood divas have been immortalising the coord look at least since the 70s, when chequered bell-bottoms were seen with matching tops. And not just Bollywood - it’s pretty much an international trend.
The coordinated look is steadily making a comeback now, with several Bollywood actresses seen sporting various types of coord sets. Tees or hoodies with matching leggings or joggers are a favourite airport look of the rich and famous. Such an outfit is super comfortable to wear on a flight. Plus it saves one from the confusion of pairing different pieces.
But coords are a lot more than an airport or gym look. With the right fit and fabric, they can look formal and glamorous too.
Ananya Pandey is known for her bold and playful sense of dressing. She is often seen sporting the coord look, which suits her very well. Here she is wearing a denim and cropped jacket combo for a relaxed, casual look.
Kriti Sanon in a sporty green coord set is looking cool as a cucumber. And it looks super comfy too.
Kiara Advani in a sleek purple coord set is a vision to behold! Coord sets are not just comfortable - they can be glamorous too. The matching blazer and pants give a very edgy, business-like look while the peppy choice of colour keeps things light and fun.
The best thing about coord sets is the amount of fun one can have with different colours and prints, like Shilpa Shetty in this shaded green number.
Coord sets are a celeb favourite when it comes to lounging at home, going out for a meal or catching a flight. Soha Ali Khan looks super chilled out in this funky purple coord set with Goofy print.
The great thing about coord sets is how they can be moulded to fit any look. Sleek pants with blazers or crop tops give a formal look and are great for attending dinners and parties, whereas the relaxed-fitting joggers with matching t-shirts or hoodies are perfect for working out or a day of chilling with friends, or just relaxing at home.
