I can feel autumn creeping into the city, with the temperature slowly dropping and the leaves starting to turn, and I am excited for all the new layering options I can reintegrate back into my wardrobe. One trend I have seen throughout the spring that’s still trickling into fall is the co-ords trend. From athleisure to beachwear to dressy occasions, co-ords are the way to go for an effortlessly cool style option for any occasion! I am most excited because co-ords are great for layering, and are sustainable because you can break up a co-ord piece to mix and match with other items in your closet!
Once again I popped into BChic Consignment to see what they had; I instantly fell in love with this piece. In a time where minimalism is praised, I still find myself piling on the bangles, bracelets and earrings every day to give my outfits more texture and sparkle. I paired this co-ord with the sequined purse to momentarily put to bed my maximalism styling and let the two pieces speak for themselves with minimal accessories. What really drew me in were the charming details: the slit in the skirt and the lightweight material of the shirt let these two items be stand-alone statement pieces. Together, they create an eye-catching outfit for a fun or formal fall occasion.
I would like to thank BChic Consignment for continuing to open their doors to me and letting me wander through the store, with a huge, huge thank you to Lynn Heick. She is the woman behind the lens in every blog post, and has the patience to take the pictures I display. Lastly, I would like to thank my boss at The Parlour for letting me use our salon as a location to take these photos.
I hope you are enjoying the last of our summer weather, and that you could find inspiration from this post and try out the co-ord trend ! Let me know what your thoughts are on co-ords, whether you think it’s still super cute or if I look like someone’s great aunt, or maybe both!
