For the past year or two, we’ve seen coordinated sets take us through most seasons and in some form of style. For the large part, this consisted of matching tracksuits, pyjamas or activewear.
Why? Because it was simple. You know they go together, they fit, and you know they’re comfortable. Given our lives at the moment, simple is best and always on-trend.
While the simple idea of sets remains a core trend, the season is now changing, and we don’t want you to forget how easy it is to inject some life and personality into a chic set.
No matter the occasion, the style or the colour, a head-to-toe ensemble has the power to give a fresh splash of playful energy or a simple professional style through the correct styling and set picks. And let’s not forget, sets are the perfect injection into your wardrobe as they can be worn together or separately, offering you more versatility when you step out in style this season.
Sets are also a fantastic option for a multitude of body shapes because they are sold individually. This makes it easier to purchase and style these pieces to fit your body type.
Matching sets are sparking joy in our rather monotony filled winter wardrobes and lives at the moment – and I, for one, am here for it! This is how I am keeping my sets on-trend:
Sets are great for everyday wear when stepping out for a moment in the sunshine. I’m pairing this look back with a comfy sneaker, statement bag and a textural pop necktie to add interest and enhance the looks laidback appeal. This mustard tone is the perfect trans-seasonal colour and something fresh to take to the office this season with a small strappy mule and fine jewellery pieces.
Remember when buying your sets this season to consider minimal colours and neutral tones that best suit your colour makeup. This makes for pieces with longevity in your wardrobe and versatility in seasonal styling.
A simple linen set is a must for the perfect weekend outfit that can take you from the morning’s farmers markets into afternoon drinks. Style it up with matching tonal accessories during the day, and pop a blazer on later, and you’ve gone from daytime style into night-time class.
Separately, these pieces are great with a pair of jeans or a white button-up, giving you three great outfits to live in this season! How great are sets?!
