Twin, Set, Match
There’s no doubt about it: the twin set is 2016’s fashion equivalent of the song of the summer! It is basically the easiest outfit ever because you don’t have to think at all about whether it matches or not, yet it instantly looks polished. After multiple seasons of NOT matching your prints, summer 2016 is all about coordinating them and we are super excited to show off this gorgeous trend in six ways we know you’ll love as much as we do…
If piecing together separates is not your strong suit, seek out a chic matching set for the easiest way to create a complete look in no time. All you need are great accessories and you’re ready to go! Channel major city-girl vibes this season in a totally lust-worthy short suit. Whether it features a short-sleeve top, off-the-shoulder neckline or high-waisted shorts, this twin-set will end up being your new go-to, from day to play.
With temperatures on the rise, there is an irresistible urge for simple, hassle-free and fool-proof styling options this upcoming season. Look effortlessly sexy and energetic in a vibrantly coloured crop top and skirt sets featuring two-pieces in the same patterns, creating a super chic and seamless look worthy of your fave fashion blogs.
FIT AND FLARE
From the catwalk to the city streets, matchy and playful printed sets are big news this season! The fit and flare silhouette is one of the most versatile of all because it looks good on every body type. Paired with a flat sandal if you are tall and slender, or with a strappy stiletto if you happen to be on the shorter side, these pairings will leave you looking fun, fearless and fashionable.
For those windy days, happy hour or a night out on the town, opt for the classic but ever-so-chic pant suit that’ll take you from the beach to the bar in no time. Pants are a nice alternative to skirts if you want to channel more of a laid-back vibe, although they’re super easy to dress up with a nice pair of stilettos and the right accessories.
What is the key to getting more than one wear out of a matching set? Switch up a few details when it comes to accessorizing your ensemble and you’ll see how versatile the pieces can be. Also, if you happen to be more mix than match, try switching between your separates for a fresh new take on summer aesthetic and dare to pair different prints, textures and fabrics.
If you love a good matching ensemble, a complete set is definitely going to become your outfit du jour this season. Leave it to a gorgeous floral print duo or a classic denim-on-denim twin set to make your summer morning routines a little (or a lot!) easier with this one-step dressing trick. Wearing a “full look” used to mean that you lacked imagination, but we happen to think it’s just easy, playful, comfortable, and right on trend!
