Comfortable and Chic Skirt Sets Are the New MVPs in My Closet

Even as a professional shopper, I sometimes get fatigued struggling to put together a decent outfit every day. I'll take any opportunity to make getting dressed easier, and that heavily includes some type of matching set. I've already talked about the joys of adopting a knitted pant set as a sweatsuit alternative, but another, equally comfortable version has popped up on my radar.

Elevated, sophisticated, and, most critical of all, comfy skirt sets are the two-piece combo that's been my wardrobe MVP. It's pretty much the simplest way to make it seem like you put in way more effort than you really did. The trick? Look for sumptuous fabrics or cool details like a contrast stitch or side cutouts to keep it looking expensive. And pro tip: If your calendar is filled with endless parties and engagements this season, you'll want to keep a few of these on rotation for a quick fancy outfit. From clingy midi-skirt sets to casual knit versions, keep scrolling to find my favorite skirt sets of the moment.
