Old meets New: Coordinates

Updated: Jun 28, 2018

Hi Everyone!

It has been a long time for me. I guess I did somewhat of a hiatus. It has been difficult balancing working, blogging, and raising my son. I have been in the process of furthering my career and I am happy to say that the hiatus paid off! So let the blogging begin again.

I am starting a Old meets New (Vintage (then) and Current (now) ) series which will highlight style from the past that are reemerging now. For this series, I want to focus on style trends in the 80’s that you can find in stores now. Majority of the trends that were worn during that time period have reemerged. 

The trend that I’m highlighting in this post are Coordinates. Coordinates are basically matching tops and bottoms. Because I like vintage, I wanted to show you that majority of current trends are redos. Below are pictures of a colorful vintage coordinate set from the 80’s. I paired it with vintage purple pumps circa in the late 1970s to the early 1980s.

As you see, coordinates are an easy go-to outfit for me because I am busy all the time and I need clothing that is simple and unique. Adding simple accessories is all that you will need because most coordinates are unique in their own way. Search your favorite stores, I'm sure you will find coordinates that you like. If you're sure where to purchase a set, try stores like Forever 21, Nasty Gal, ASOS, Zara, H&M and Boutiques. Most have sets that are very affordable and fashionable.

Happy Shopping, I hope you find your favorite coordinate!

Always remember, Simplicity makes a Statement.
