The Best Matching Sets For Grown-Up Women

Matching sets are the kind of trend we like: Easy. Summer-friendly pant, midi, and short co-ords in pretty solids and elegant prints.
Six to Sunday

It’s funny how sometimes a color or a style will float into the zeitgeist and become so ubiquitous you start to see it EV-ER-Y-where. Case in point: matching sets.

Coordinated combos (or “co-ords”)—pants and a top, shorts and a shirt, and skirts and a shirt in solid colors and pretty prints—are showing up in stores coast to coast. Naturally, we decided to take a closer look.

The effect of a two-piece set is almost that of a more casual suit—it’s plenty polished and pulled together but less formal because there isn’t a blazer in the mix. Plus you get the added flexibility that the two pieces can be worn separately and the added sophistication of a monochrome look (especially if you opt for solids).

We’d call that bang for your buck, and we’re most definitely on board with it. Here are our top picks for matching sets.

Matching Sets With Shorts

And just like THAT, shorts become so elevated (and longer-length friendly) you can wear them any place you’d wear a charming summer dress. We love how many matching short sets are paired with tops with sleeves to help balance out how much skin you show.
