What’s twice as nice and requires half the effort?
Now that restrictions have ended and we’re trying to distance ourselves from loungewear (rather than people!), this simple trend has made a huge comeback.
For those who don’t know, co-ords (short for co-ordinates) is a matching two-piece outfit – in which both parts feature either the same fabric, colour, or pattern. Or all three!
Yes, there are lots of things that could technically be described as a co-ord set – tailored suits… PJs… bikinis even. But it’s a trend in its own right and one that has gathered serious momentum over the last few months, as we’ve finally begun to venture out of our homes.
In fact – according to the global fashion shopping platform, Lyst – online searches for ‘co-ords’ has risen by 47% since April 2021, with a particular focus on athleisure twinsets. And it’s easy to understand why.
So, here at Tokyo Laundry, we’ve jumped on the bandwagon.
If anyone knows how to do athleisure co-ord sets well, it’s us. Our online store is now fully loaded with matchy-matchy styles for men and women. Take a look today. Embrace this simple post-pandemic trend and get back out there in style.
Men’s co-ord sets
If co-ords weren’t easy enough already, we’ve gone and made it even easier. As part of our men’s multipack range, we’re now selling the top and bottom halves of the co-ord together – as the two-piece they’re meant to be.
Choose from a diverse range of matching hoodies and joggers in grey marl, charcoal, navy and more. All crafted from ultra-soft brushback fleece and finished with subtle yet iconic Tokyo Laundry branding. These are ready-made twinsets and they can be thrown on with just about any t-shirt and trainer combo to create an effortlessly stylish look.
But our men’s co-ords offering doesn’t stop there. Lots of matching styles can also be found throughout our menswear department, particularly in our men’s t-shirt range and jogger shorts collection. So why not have a look round? See if you can spot any pairs and create your own co-ordinated style.
Women’s co-ord sets
When it comes to women’s co-ords, you can’t just whack on a black t-shirt and black leggings and call it job done. That’s cheating. You need to invest in a two-piece with a statement design or distinctive features – and the styles in our womenswear range certainly meet the criteria.
Matching sweatshirts and joggers are available in a wide range of on-trend colourways, including understated hues of grey and navy and pastel shades of pink, blue, and coral. They’re sold as separates rather than a set. But they’re identical in design and feature bold, eye-catching branding, which makes it obvious they’re meant to be donned together.
Simply style with your favourite canvas trainers to create a ‘don’t care’ yet super chic look. Or if you fancy taking co-ordination to the next level, choose a zip-up hoodie, find a matching short-sleeved tee and turn that two-piece into a classy three-piece set instead.
