Do you remember those ensemble sets, or for the sake of familiarity, short sets your mother picked out for your daily, summer adventures? My fondest memories of summer fashion were those (sometimes ridiculous) short sets. I had a lavender and lime duo that I considered a staple; I chuckle just thinking about it.
Thirty years later, and I STILL love a good set. They’re perfect for both spring and summer; and honestly, less time is spent with finding something to wear. Whether it’s a matching set or mix and match number, you have the luxury to throw on and go.
The sassy, yet quirky set I’m wearing below is not a set, but to the untrained eye, it appears to be. 😌
My tips for nailing said look:
- Don’t be afraid to experiment with different patterns and/or prints. For example: gingham, polka dots, floral, stripes, etc.
- Choose your shorts, first.
- Seek out pieces that can be remixed with existing threads you already own!
- Have fun with your look!
