I must admit, two-piece sets haven’t really been my thing. For whatever reason, they’ve felt a little more complicated than my go-to dresses and t-shirt-and-jean combos, which is silly because the whole point of a matching set is that it combines two separate pieces into one effortless look. Don’t ask me why this has been the case because I truly have no explanation. It wasn’t until I recently packed this green floral-print set from the POPSUGAR collection at Kohl’s that I realized how much I adore a matching top-and-bottom situation. So much so, that it’s made me want to give up floral print dresses altogether. OK, not really. But it has caused a little more fatigue in the dress department as a result.
Now, as a dress devotee, I often struggle with outfits rooted in separates, save for my aforementioned tee-and-jean looks and tank top and midi skirt outfits. So, it’s no wonder coordinating pieces have changed my tune. From the jaunty green shade to the sprightly floral print, this particular set felt perfectly whimsical for a relaxing getaway where I wanted nothing to do with over-complicated outfits. The airy top, featuring ruffled bell sleeves and a bow-tie detail, has just enough design detail to feel interesting without going overboard. And the pants, well, they’re utterly delightful thanks to the roomy wide legs with swishy appeal.
While I wore this look in the mountains, it’s an ideal outfit for many Summer occasions from parties to weddings with heels or flat sandals and sneakers for dinner, drinks, and friendly hangs. Of course, you can break up the pieces and style them with other staples in your wardrobe for endless outfit combinations. But since I’m newly hooked on the matchy-matchy look, I’m planning to rewear the printed pants with a couple of other tops from the POPSUGAR collection at Kohl’s in the same print. So many options!
Ahead, witness me in all my two-piece set glory, then shop my look for a total of $70. If you’re leaning into the look as much as I am, be sure to scoop up the two other tops in the same print and live your best coordinated life all Summer.
