Wardrobe feeling wickedly overwhelming, leaving you with looks feeling more mismatched than mix-and-match? Toiling and troubling over what to wear? With a recent brought-back fad, the search for a perfect pairing is at an end—the quote does go, “Double, double, toil and trouble,” right? And, in fact, the answer is just that—double. The two-piece is back, baby. And with a vengeance.
Bodysuits, playsuit, rompers? More like #twinning. Two-pieces, or twinsets (yes, that term now goes beyond just the cardigan-and-sweater set), takes front and center stage when it comes to pulling off an insanely (easy) pulled-together look. The trend seems to pop up every few decades or so—their “pop”ularity peaking in the ’30s, ’50s, ’70s, and two-pieces are back at it again after dodging in and out of the sartorial scene over the past few years. Unlike a one-piece, a twinset has the option to work as a spectacular insta-outft, or its pieces can be paired as seperates, its versatility making the look especially prevalent.
Though most infamously sported by T-swift, the twinset trend goes beyond a skirt a crop top set. As seen on the Fashionista pictured, a shorts and crop top two-piece makes for a dynamic (and practical) duo—kinda like a cut in half romper. This Fashionista flaunted an especially standout two-piece short set, looking something like a fine china set with its cobalt-on-white pattern.
Though this Fashionista opted for the casual route with this two-piece shorts set, she could just have easily formally formatted her look, with a statement necklace, a wide-brim hat, bold lipstick a pair of lace-up flats or open-toe pumps—one of the wonders of twinsets! Shorts for formalities? I’m all about that life: pulled together with pockets
This all-encomposing ensemble is a one-piece, two-piece, and whether opting for a white and blue piece (or tropical leaf multicolor print one), this is one trend to get on top of stat—twice the outfit, half the prep and planning.
What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK?: “I actually just ran out and threw something on—I love this outfit and all the compliments I get on how pulled together I look when I literally just pulled it on.”
