Get the look: Kate Mara's athleisure co-ord at Victoria Beckham's LA Target garden party

Co-ords, or two-piece sets as they are otherwise known, are one of the key looks this season, but many of us struggle with how to wear the trend.

Co-ords can look fresh and chic if you get it spot on, but there are so many clingy versions on the high street that they really aren’t for everybody. So when we see one of our favourite celebrities working the trend perfectly, it's time to make the most of the inspiration.

House of cards Actress Kate Mara looked sleek and stylish this weekend in LA wearing the hottest collab to hit the high street.

Frequently topping best dressed lists, it was no surprise Mara picked out one of the best looks from Victoria Beckham’s collaboration with Target as she attended Beckham’s LA Target Garden Party. Teaming it with nude courts and a box clutch, the actress ensured all eyes were on the clothes as she pulled her hair back into a tight ponytail.

Here’s how to get the chic athleisure short suit look down perfectly, that will have you looking effortlessly cool this spring.

The two-piece set

We love this pale gold smart-casual two-piece. A cropped t-shirt & shorts co-ord from Asos (£50), with a similar cut to Kate’s shorts, this runner style cut of shorts is both cool and flattering.
