The Co ordinates
So when you see the fashion world adorning an outfit that looks or has identical prints on the top as well bottom, which in our childhood was taught as “matching sets” to us, actually has a term known as separates or coordinates. It is a set of clothing that is designed to match or complement one another, in style or color.
Separates are something that works on all body types. Be it from Kim Kardashian hourglass body to a Disha patani athletic body if talking more realistically. From undertones to bold tones they are all around us. You need the right eye to understand the print, style and color for your body.
It does not matter if you feel you are way too healthy to pull it off, because you can actually make a set of coordinates with two pieces of outfit that you have in your wardrobe. The only thing you have to keep in mind is that the fabric should similar as far as possible.
In our post the separates Noorin decided to go for was a high waist skirt and a crop in a neutral tone from koovs that worked wonders for her curvy body. The color complimented her skin tone and the fabric was not restricted in its stretches. And to bring out an edginess to the look she went for a brighter color footwear that fashioned appropriately. Keeping it simple yet glamorous.
For me, I decided to opt for something that would flatter my body and overall personality.
I chose a beige and gold combination in culottes and a box top that i picked up from a retail store named Idiva in lokhandwala. I decided to pair them with black heels for the swank. For skinny people i personally feel light colors work really best in such monochromatic looks as it gives a boost to the personality and saves them from acquaintances constantly telling you of how you’ve lost extra weight. Which by the way i feel one should completely ignore.
The benefits of such outfits are that they not confined to a day or a night look in particular. You are free to pull them off for any event or occasions. There are no rules to this look.
To sum it up i would say that you invest at least in a pair of separates/coordinates as they are going to be around for about a year.. And not necessarily buy it from a brand. You can look out in small retail stores that have varied range or look up online.
