Of All the Short Sets Out There This Summer, This Is the Best I've Tried

I've said it before, and I'll say it again—you really ought to consider adding a co-ord to your wardrobe. As a big believer in easy style, there's a versatility to a two-piece set that allows for endless outfit possibilities. This summer I'm relying on shorts-and-shirt sets to get me through everything from beach days to brunch in the city with pals, and there's one two-piece in particular that I can't get enough. Plus, it's been made with you in mind, as it's from our new sustainable (and affordable!) fashion collection, Drop 01 by Who What Wear UK.

Made from a sustainable cotton-and-linen mix, the airy set can be styled for far-flung adventures, intrepid explorations or really any plans you have. The sage green set will mix and match in a plethora of ways, and changes style with the simple exchange of accessories. But don't just take my word for it, there's plenty of outfit inspiration to come.

Affiliate Editor Emily Dawes wears Tejal Linen Shirt (£45), Franki Linen Shorts (£32).

We spent a lot of time getting this set just right. With the help of over 1,000 Who What Wear UK readers we've created a concise capsule collection that is a true collaboration between us and you. Sustainability is an important part of this collection so every piece is made-to-order to reduce waste. We're also transparent about our pricing, as we want to share our commitment to higher wages for workers. 

With polls on fabric, material and patterns, each piece in this collection has been designed to be worn on sunny days year after year. We know that our readers are all unique, so this set is designed with an a-line cut to be flattering and comfortable for all bodies and lifestyles. And ever the fashion-forward bunch, it had to be this gorgeous green hue. 

As promised, scroll on to shop the shorts-and-shirt set I'm living in this summer, and plenty of ways to style it.
