DETAILS: STRIPED TWO-PIECE DRESS (ALSO LOVING THIS ONE AND THIS STRIPED ONE) || LEMON CLUTCH || NUDE HEELS || SUNGLASSES
If the last time you wore a matching two-piece set (and no I am not talking pajamas!) was for picture day in elementary school then you are missing out. To get over any misplaced phobia from your childhood, think of separates as a chic split dress, jumper, romper, etc. Better yet, your separates will work over time if and when you split them up. Below are a few ways to wear matching separates that work with any body type.
1. The Dress-set: Two-piece dresses come in so many styles but one of my favorites is when paired with a crop top. Don’t second guess your ability to pull off a cropped-top set – it can chic but sophisticated at almost any stage in life. For classic feminine perfection, opt for a high-waisted skirt with a long hem-line (think an align, maxi, or midi pencil skirt – love this bright print and this floral set).
Wear It: Whenever you can 🙂 Between a midi pencil skirt and align, you can take this look casual for the weekend or dressy for date night out or even a semi-formal occasion.
2. The Shorts-set: Matching top and shorts combos are a flirty take on a romper and perfect for summer. To break up a set, opt for matching jacket like this gorgeous blush kimono set. Play with prints and texture for a set that reads more intentional then accidental.
Wear It: Outdoors to a summer BBQ, picnic, the boardwalk, or other fun summer staple activities.
3. The Pants-set: The matching pants and top separates is such a chic and sophisticated look. Understated sets from monochromatic tones to bold prints come across exactly as you would expect them to – perfection. I love this checkered chambray set.
Wear It: Anywhere from the office (with conservative sets) to a Broadway play or any other occasions where elegance is everything.
Digging up more matching sets definitely started something. I’m loving so many of the options! Below are a few more of my favorites.
