Coordinates are my favorite to wear. I love matching from head to toe and for my outfits to literally to be “grab and go.” People need easy to grab outfits, but also need the freedom and creativity to think outside of the box while styling, and that’s what a coordinate gives you.   Being "matchy-matchy" has been around for years, and it may seem tricky to pull off, but it’s actually the total opposite. If you think about it the outfit is pretty much already put together for you. All you have to do is find a great shoe and the perfect accessory, and boom; you are set and ready walk out of the door. But, it's all about doing it right, which can take an outfit to a new level of chic.

Coordinates can be worn on a day-to-day basis, whether it's to the park or a date night. Below you'll be able to learn how the simple change of a shoe or purse can make or break the "coordinate" look.

So, let me paint this stylish picture.

Imagine that you are going to an NBA game later on tomorrow night and you want to be sporty chic, but you have meetings and errands to run during the day, You have two outfits to pick from. You can wear an all-denim outfit, which will include jeans, a denim flannel, and a denim jacket or you can wear black sports set, which includes a black sports bra and black leggings, that you will top off with a black oversized bomber jacket.

During the day you can pair each outfit with converse, Jordan’s, Adidas, or even some Fenty Puma Slides, which a cute sporty backpack to match and a New York Yankees Hat.

The transition from day to night is easy.

Take off the flats and put on a heel, a simple single strapped pump will do or you can even wear a thigh-high boot, change the backpack and wear a cute Chanel bag, and keep the hat on to keep it sporty and chic. See simple!

Coordinates are also a great addition to any wardrobe because they can be worn as separates. You can get multiple wears and outfits from just one coordinate.

Below are two different coordinates that I love to wear.

This coordinate is from Pretty Little Thing. I paired it with a black heel and a purse with a huge statement.

This coordinate is from H&M. I paired it with a nude heel and the sam purse. 

Below are more coordinates that are perfect for any occasion.
