It might be spring, but our energy levels still have some catching up to do. So until the vitamin D kicks in, we're all for anything that makes our lives easier right now, whether it's a simple TikTok recipe that takes 20 minutes to whip up or perhaps an outfit that takes all of 30 seconds to assemble. As this is Who What Wear, we're going to focus on the latter.

Skirt-and-top sets aren't exactly new, but we couldn't help noticing that the co-ord is dominating not only our favourite new-in sections but also our Instagram feeds right now. What we love most about skirt-and-top sets is the fact they require almost zero effort on your part to look good—pop them on, add your favourite shoes, your go-to jewellery, et voilà—you look like you've put a great deal of thought into your attire, even though that wasn't exactly the case.
