The Rise of the Matching Sets

If you've paid attention at all to fashion trends over the last year, you'll know that matching or coordinating sets are back big time. It's a straightforward concept – a top and bottoms that match, complement, or coordinate each other. It's permeated every style imaginable – from Cottagecore and Romantic styles to Athleisure and Vintage.

Over the holidays, I pulled the trigger on my first matching set from Zara (unfortunately no longer available) and in the past month I've worn it at least twice per week. There's something so satisfying and effortless about two pieces that you know without a doubt match. I can stand in front of my closet without a thought in the world of what to wear and know that these two pieces will always go together.

That's the beauty of the matching set – always having one outfit on standby, ready to go. No matter what your personal style or budget, I promise there's a matching set out there for you.

Below are some of my favorites coordinating sets that are chic and fun for everyday wear.
