Looking to invest in something new for your spring wardrobe? My latest fave is a matching set of the skirt and top variety. I wear the above Manning Cartell skirt set to death, both as a matching pair and also as separates. Versatility is key in my book and I adore co-ord sets for that reason— you can get multiple looks from just one set. While wearing a matching top and bottom is nothing new, I do love the freshness of a skirt and top combination. It feels feminine, modern and very on trend.
There are a few different styles out there right now which are just perfect for this time of year. I love the simple stretchy knit skirt and relaxed top that I’m wearing above as I like a streamlined silhouette but there’s definitely plenty of options out there. You could opt for a slightly more bohemian vibe with a floaty skirt and a peasant style blouse or go the completely opposite direction and embrace something sleek and sexy with a crop and pencil-style midi skirt. One of the best things about wearing a set like this is that you have an instantly polished look on your hands—there’s just no denying that a matching look just presents very put together and elevated. It’s easily one of my favourite wardrobe short cuts! Plus you can dress it up or down depending on your choice of accessories and shoes. A simple slingback and a statement earring is one of my tried and tested ways to accessorise this look, but you could opt for anything from sneakers to sandals or heels. The options are endless.
So, if you want to invest in something that you’ll wear to death, sidesteps wardrobe dilemmas and has plenty of versatility, I think you can’t go wrong with any of the options below.
