Matching two-piece sets are a huge trend right now. They’re everywhere, seriously, but they’re not all created equal. They can be ill-fitting, cheap looking, or unflattering, and that ruins the cutest pattern or cut.
So, I am here to tell you about my new favorite lace two-piece set and why it’s so fab.
#1 The fit is perfect. Sometimes, two-piece sets will come together and you have to buy them as a set, but that’s no good in my opinion. I want to be able to choose the size of my bottom and top separately to be sure I find the right fit. That’s what’s great about this one.
#2 It’s Flattering. The skirt is nice and high-waisted, which of course is always flattering. Also, you know how some off the shoulder tops will dig into your arms? This one has a nice, thick elastic band that is super comfortable and not to mention more flattering. Also, the ruffles go outward, making your shoulder seem more slender. Midi skirts can also tend to cut your legs and make them look shorter, but this one has a sheer overlay that starts above the knees, so it lengthens your legs.
#3 It’s low maintenance. I am such a practical person when it comes to buying clothes. I want them to be comfortable, I want them to last forever, and I don’t want to worry about them being too much trouble to keep up. When I have clothes that are made of delicate fabrics it completely stresses me out!! Am I the only one? For instance, my mom gave me a gorgeous silk Burberry scarf for Christmas a few years and I snagged it after only having it a few weeks. I freaking snagged it!! I was so mad at myself. So, to relieve the stress of worrying about messing up my clothes, I like to pick good clothes made of low maintenance fabrics. Lace, my friends, is low maintenance. You never have to iron it, which is amazing, and if it gets a tiny rip or tear, it usually doesn’t show that easily.
The last thing I love about this set is that it reminds me of spring. I am so happy that the weather has been so warm and amazing here in Austin, it really makes me want to go and do various outdoor activities in outfits like this one 🙂
