5 reasons why matching skirt and top sets are better than dresses
1. Stand out in coordinate sets among a sea of dresses
If like me, you prefer your style to be a little bit different, it’s time to ditch the dress in favour of matching skirt and top sets. Have you ever been on a night out, looked around, and noticed that everyone was dressed the same? If you long to break free among a sea of dresses, now is the time to express your individuality. Nail it with a killer coordinated look. There’s just one problem though – people will beg you to tell them where your outfit is from!

2. Be perfectly coordinated with minimum effort
There’s something so satisfying about putting together a flawless look from head to toe. And thanks to matching skirt and top sets, you can effortlessly pull off a polished look. Plus, for those unexpected nights out (which always turn out to be the best ever), there’s something reassuring about knowing your wardrobe is packed full of carefully coordinated looks. So when that unexpected date night crops up, or you get an invite for a last minute night on the town, pop on your favourite set, add some accessories, grab a taxi and go.

3. Find your perfect coord shape
The thing about coordinate sets is that there’s so many fabulously fun options out there. This gives you the chance to not only experiment with your style, but find one which perfectly flatters your rocking body. For curvy girls, why not try a crop top and fitted midi skirt combo to show off that hourglass figure? Apple shaped gals should opt for an A-line skirt to really flatter that waist. When it comes to pear shaped silhouettes, play around with colour blocking and patterns to balance out your proportions. Or, why not break all the rules and try different styles, choosing to wear your favourite co ords how you like?!

4. Mix it up thanks to coordinate sets
When you purchase matching skirt and top sets, you are opening up the possibility of countless outfit options. Yes, while we LOVE the matchy matchy head to toe look, the great news is that you can mix and match your combos to come up with some seriously sassy options. Why not take a patterned skirt and pair it with a plain top to really make your skirt pop? Or, take a crop top and don a pair of skinny jeans for an alternative look. The options really are endless.

5. Dress your coords up or down
Matching skirt and top sets really are perfect for anytime of the day. For that #OOTD I LOVE this mini skirt and polo neck set. And, it’s the perfect way to channel your inner Rachel Green. Pair with knee high boots and oversized bag for a fab flashback to the 90s. Or, for that #OOTN, this is where things really get interesting. There are so many amazing prints, textures and silhouettes available when it comes to coords. For vintage vibes, rock a floral crop top with matching 50s style skirt or keep things modern with a maxi skirt and coordinated top.
When it comes to coordinate sets, broaden your horizons and play around with your style to create a look that’s distinctly you.
