Fashion, What I Wore

What I Wore: Set Up

1st November, 2023

One of the great trends to emerge in the last few years has without a doubt has been the matching set. It makes effortless dressing unbelievably easy as there’s no fussing around with mixing and matching separates, it’s just a co-ordinating top and bottom and you’re done. Love that! A set can also appear on the full spectrum of fashion whether you want something that’s super casual for weekend wear, or a duo like the below which is definitely dressy and more elevated. This vest and skirt combination is from Husk which is a great boutique near where I live (they also have a number of locations around Sydney and Melbourne and they’re online) and is part of the current range. Vests are really having a moment so I love the fact this set taps into that trend, but gives it a more polished spin with the knee length A-line skirt. It’s also something that can be worn separately if you want, which is perfect for cost per wear. You could wear this set to the office, an event or just out to dinner and it would work, making it a great option for those days when you need to look put together but kinda just want to get dressed on autopilot.

Working with a crisp white canvas as far as outfits goes is always fun as you can take your accessories in so many different directions. It’s a hue that works with pretty much everything so there’s not much to worry about in terms of getting everything absolutely spot on, most colours will just work with it. Once again, effortless dressing to a tee. I opted for some slightly bolder tones with a caramel-hued pair of sunglasses by Pared and chartreuse heels by Billini to provide some contrast. The finishing touch was a teeny Gucci Jackie bag, which I have to say, for something that is so diminutive it has really become a bag that I’ve come to rely on a lot simply because it holds my essentials but still looks small enough to be a bit more of an elevated bag than an everyday grab-and-go style.
