CHELSEA PEERS: Co-ords make life just a whole lot easier

Do you think wearing a co-ords outfit is a little cheesy, don’t think that you’re the type of dude that can pull off a matchy-matchy set, well let us help rethink the way to wear co-ords. It’s a case of matching like-for-like, same-to-same, so that your look is complete, and also you can wear likewise with other items in your wardrobe. It’s like twinning, you know, creating a look totally different, but just the same, a little extraordinary than your usual look and certainly more ultra-luxe.

Think about the combinations that you can make with co-ord sets, there is no limitation, think where wearing a co-ords set would look cool, anywhere, for a chilled shop in town, in a bar, lunch date, barbecues, you know, you really don’t have to think about it, it’s that simpleness of just not worrying about what clashes, and actually your outfit will be good-to-go in a second, now that’s a plus. 

Try – hoodies and shorts, shirt and shorts, t-shirt and joggers etc, the list can be endless as long as they match. Co-ords sets are versatile ensembles as they channel all of the menswear lines, but now with a knockabout summer edge.

For dressier summer events, a casual party where celebration is the name of the game, choose sets in toned-down neutrals or pastels, don’t go for bright or garish prints  or you’ll stand out like a sore thumb. Opt for the Mens Textured Beach Shirt, a lush long sleeved, in a soft-texture fabric, button up front and it’s a boxy shaped shirt in this great neutral colour. That of course is great for mix-and-matching with the Mens Textured Lounge Shorts. These shorts are in a super-soft textured fabric, as the shirt, with handy side pockets and a drawstring waist.

If you’re wearing a set of shirts and shorts, and you want to tone it down abit, think about breaking it down with a crisp white tee for a subtle effect, and we know that in the warmer months it’s nice to have the shirt unbuttoned, but by wearing a tee you can still show off your six-pack without showing too much flesh. It’s a great way to ramp up the summer fashion stakes. I mean co-ords can be smart, casual, sporty or relaxed, even mighty outrageous or anything in between. 

This  great shirt and shorts are easily split up, the shirt will work well with jeans or chinos, and in cooler months wear it as an overshirt open and  loose with tailored trousers, and the shorts are great with a summer tee and some sandals. Winter months, wear them to bed.
