Out with the old, in with the new—or, as we like to say, out with the sundress, in with the matching set. Our love for a really stylish matchy-matchy moment is well-documented, and we’re especially sticking to our guns this summer.
Not only are matching sets a breezier, oft times more comfortable alternative to a classic floral sundress—they’re also a smidge more modern and of-the-moment. They’re appropriate for casual, day-to-day wear (perfect for a weekend brunch, for example)—but can also be dressed up for a girls’ night out with a statement necklace or a really great high heel.
