The nice weather is here and it’s time to break out the summery clothes! Between sundresses, brightly colored shorts, lace tops, and florals, we’re loving all of the seasonal trends.

My personal favorite spring trend, though, is the two-piece set. Aside from being totally of-the-moment, two-piece sets are crazy versatile, offering you so many options, whether you wear the pieces together or separately.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Two-Piece Sets

Left to Right, Top to Bottom: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

Matching tops and bottoms, whether they combine a top and shorts or a top and a skirt, are super cute and can be dressed up or down. Need an outfit for a family reunion or just a day out running errands? Look no further than a trendy two-piece set.

I also love that these sets are available in every possible style. Whether you’re girly, boho, preppy, or modern there is a two-piece set for you.

The best part? You can separate your two-piece sets and get extra wardrobe mileage out of them. Below, I’ll show you how to style them as sets and as separates.

Dressing Up Your Two-Piece Sets

Dressed Up Two-Piece Set

Products: Two-Piece Set | Statement Necklace | Heels

Two piece sets can be surprisingly formal; you just have to choose the right one. This midi skirt and tank set, for example, would be appropriate for a summer wedding or fancy dinner. Just add nude heels and a spring-perfect statement necklace.

Dressing Down Your Two-Piece Sets

Products: Two-Piece Set | Hat | Bracelets (similar) | Sandals

To dress a two-piece set down, pair a shorts-and-top combo with some cute strappy sandals, a cool hat, and some stacked bracelets. This would be a perfect outfit for class, lunch with friends, the beach, or any of your school’s spring events.

Swap Out the Top

Now we’re getting advanced – my favorite part of two-piece sets is that you can separate them for extra wardrobe options. For this look, take the midi skirt from the first set and style it with a cute graphic tee and some fun accessories. With a few quick changes, you have a totally new, adorable outfit that mixes casual and fancy with ease.

Swap Out the Bottoms

Swap out the bottoms

Products: Top | Jeans | Hat | Necklace | Shoes

Here’s another mix-up example: You can do the same thing with the second two-piece set by adding a different bottom. Here, I paired the gingham top with cool white jeans, then added classic sandals and a pretty necklace for extra style points.

  1. I LOVE the idea of two-piece sets! This is so perfect because I’m going to wedding in late July and was looking for a nice two-piece dress and that white checkered one is perfect!

    Also, when I’ve been looking online for two-piece sets, I haven’t been finding that many…have I just not been looking at the right places? Or like what keywords or websites do you use to find them? Thank you in advance!

    • In my experience, a lot of stores tend to categorize them in one of two ways – either as a dress, or in the case of places like F21 and H&M, they’ll list the pieces individually (i.e. skirt and blouse), but you can often spot them in the photos, because they’ll style the models in the matching pieces.
