while i am on my quest for the perfect summer top, i decided to head to the archives to find a few of my favorite matching separates. as you’ve seen here before, i love to pair matching separates together. you get more bang for your buck when it comes to outfit combinations because you can easily create the look of a dress, romper or a jumpsuit. i know many of you avoid jumpsuits and rompers due to the extra time spent in the bathroom. but pairing matching separates together is a perfect way to create the look without the hassle. here’s how to wear matching separates.
if you love bold, bright colors with a splash of pattern, then you are gonna love today’s post! ‘cuz summer is all about FUN. and pops of color just brighten your mood. i know, i know, neutrals can’t be beaten when it comes to versatility or that chic factor. but i’ve always thought fashion should be fun. and what’s funner (okay that’s not a word) that a bold and bright outfit?
what i particularly like about a matching skirt and top is that they act as a dress for a no-fuss-no-muss look. but when pulled apart they are independent separates that can be mixed and matched with your wardrobe. that’s a win/win in my book.
today’s outfit may look like a dress but in fact, it’s a matching top and skirt. the dog days of summer have recently settled in, so it’s all about beating the heat in style. i particularly like how light and airy this outfit feels. the sheer ruffle on the paisley skirt gives this ootd some personality.
wearing matching separates together is the next best thing to a one and done outfit. pair any one of your matching separates with a neutral and your summer wardrobe just increased! while two of my matching sets from the archives are long gone, i have collected several current matching sets. many with pants, skirts and shorts! shop the gallery below to find your perfect set and then check out how i have styled my separates with neutrals.
