Patterns and textures have certainly turned up alongside the summer heat. From pastel florals to bright, bold tribal prints, they are certainly a must have for the summer season. Although some can be over-the-top, they can truly add dimension to any outfit and create a fun overall look. Not only are patterns on-trend, but so are two-piece sets. Imagine a printed romper that’s been cut in half and you have a fabulous summer outfit that is great for just about any occasion.

This Fashionista nailed the trend that everyone is raving about- two-piece sets. Her royal blue and white patterned crop top and matching high-waisted shorts add depth to this simple style. The pattern portrays a fun and energetic vibe while the set remains classy with simple lines. This Fashionista chose a dainty gold hamsa necklace to add the perfect amount of accessories. Since this two-piece printed set is detailed, she stuck to a classic brown bucket bag (which, I may add, is extremely trending) in order to not take away from the set. On her feet is a pair of simple brown sandals that complete the look and add a causal vibe.

Since two-piece sets are so versatile, you can wear them wherever you want, which is why I love them so much. They can be dressed up or down and worn to any occasion. Adding heals or wedges will dress up the look, making it perfect for a night out with girlfriends. Like our Fashionista, a simple sandal or lace up gladiator completes a great daytime look that is both comfortable and fashionable. The only thing that you have to be careful of is making sure you don’t over accessorize, especially if you have a bold print. Adding a simple necklace or earrings, and pairing a solid colored bag will do the trick and tie the outfit together.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “I love two-piece sets because they are so easy to throw on, but look as if you have put forth so much effort. They are great for any occasion, especially festivals this summer.”
