Forget Dresses for a Second—Fashion People Keep Wearing This Classy Co-Ord

Having spent a more than fair amount of time scouring new-in sections, I've noticed a particular summer-ready trend land online in droves in recent weeks. Up there with drop-waist dresses and Mary Jane shoes, everywhere I look, fashion brands are backing the bustier co-ord trend. Already picked up by some of our favourite fashion people, this particular two-piece set has proven a popular choice for sophisticated summer style. Styled by Karlie Kloss for a weekday occasion, the model took a less-is-more approach to her outfit, letting the graceful nature of the two-piece ensemble carry her look.

Often designed in rigid linen or cotton, the two-piece set offers an elevated alternative to the cotton dresses that otherwise dominate the season. And whilst I'm enamoured by the pretty trouser and bustier sets I've seen on the market, I've also found some supremely chic skirt versions that make sophisticated summer dressing so easy. Often found in the rotations of fashion editors worldwide, the elegant co-ord is favoured during fashion month for its fuss-free and polished finish.
