After the year we’ve all had, and a long, dreary winter, I couldn’t be more excited for spring. It’s cheesy, but unmistakably true, that spring feels like a new beginning. The sun is out longer, the birds start to sing again outside my window, and everyone’s mood seems a bit more optimistic. Part of this new beginning includes a wardrobe refresh, including a matching set or two.
The older I get, the more I need my wardrobe to feel effortless. Matching sets fit that bill. On a recent shopping trip I came across this two-piece set from H&M and felt a new love blossom. Co-ord sets (short for “coordinates”) are not only easy to throw on and go, but they instantly make it look like you tried really hard to look this good. Just roll with it.
The rise in two-piece loungewear sets last year have migrated over to tops and matching skirts for spring. So if you happen to have somewhere to go in the next few months (here’s hoping you have access to the vaccine!), swap the sweatpants and sweatshirt for a lighter, and slightly more fitted top and skirt combo. Emphasis on the ‘slightly’ fitted adjective. Let’s not get crazy.
Matching sets are a wonderful option for a number of occasions including:
- A first in-person, post-Zoom date
- A picnic in the park
- A brunch date with friends
- Walking the dog
- A wedding reception
- Working from home, if you’re over leggings
Whatever you decide, take a look below at these 15 matching sets for spring to draw inspiration or purchase a set for yourself. Enjoy!
