Who doesn’t love an outfit shortcut? One of my faves right now is a matching set. They’re about as one and done as a dress—no fussing around, just add shoes and accessories and you’re ready to go. I’ve embraced the co-ordinating set in so many different ways, from a floaty linen shirt and shorts, to a silky PJ-style top and bottom to a denim two-piece ensemble. What they all have in common is that they’re easy as you can get. So as you can imagine, I jumped aboard the printed set trend immediately. Wearing a set takes away having to think about what top you’re going to pair with which bottom, plus the vibrancy of a great print really makes a statement.
I wore a number of printed sets during my trip to Europe this year because I love no-fuss outfits when I’m travelling. Living out of a suitcase means only pieces that are going to get worn get to come along as I hate to overpack. So, it speaks volumes that I brought the sets above and below with me. Both allowed me to have fun with my look given the bold and bright prints of each, but they also looked polished. Plus if I wanted to wear them separately I totally could.
This summer, if you’re wanting to have a fuss-free time getting an outfit together I highly recommend trying a printed set. They’re so in line with the more playful vibe of summer dressing, but have the polish required to ensure you look put together when you walk out the door. I don’t know about you but there’s so much to love about that.
