12 cool summer co-ord matching sets to wear in the sunshine

The stylish matching sets for women we're loving right now...

True story - some of my friends call me the Co-ord Queen because I just love a matching set. My wardrobe is made up of so many shorts and blazer co-ords, bright coloured suits, and lately, I'm all about cool casual separates that match.

For the heatwave I'm totally wearing my co-ord ensembles and so I thought I'd shop the high-street in case you wanted to join me, Not literally, of course - well, unless you want to!

These co-ords are ideal for lounging in the garden, or you might pack one in your suitcase for your mini staycation. Summer dresses are wonderful, but a pair of shorts with a matching top is the easiest fool-proof outfit for summer. 

You could choose from cool, lightweight linen (the Marks & Spencer set looks extremely easy to wear), or you might fancy something a bit more daring with various prints.
