When the heat index is high and all you want to do is slip into a comfortable yet classy look for your post-beach meal, a coordinating set is the perfect place to turn. Second only to a beachy bikini, a matching set makes dressing up for dinner or dressing-down for an evening ice-cream run nothing short of effortless. While some may prefer a more neutral and versatile look, like the Addison Set from Princess Polly, others may like the thrill of a boldly-printed set like Crochet Stripe and Top and Shorts Co-Ord from Nasty Gal.
