A few months ago, during one of my many weekly internet-shopping sessions, I spotted and bought a plissé pleated top-and-pants matching set on a whim. It was from none other than Who What Wear, and although we, as the editors, have the privilege of test-driving a lot of styles before they hit stores, this two-piece set escaped me. Quickly, it became my go-to outfit for everything from video calls to short walks to my local coffee shop or whenever I needed to run out of the house and didn't want to look like I rolled out of bed. Like most people, I've pretty much reached my limit wearing sweatsuits (they've been my uniform for the better part of a year), so I'm more than happy to embrace an equally comfortable and low-key alternative.
What I love about a matching set is that it takes me around five minutes (or less) to arrive at a complete look: Just throw it on, and add a pair of heeled mules and gold jewelry, and you have an outfit that looks intentional with minimal effort. Now that I've discovered the joy of matching sets, I'm giving my dull sweatsuits a rest for the ease of an elevated two-piece. Below, I've gathered several stylish matching skirt-and-pants sets if you too have reached sweatpants fatigue. A bonus: Many of them are under $200 and prime for some glorious spring weather.
