I don’t know about you, but when it comes to planning my week of work-ready outfits, comfort is among my top priorities — only, I want it to look as though comfort isn’t among my main concerns. Enter, workwear’s latest unsung hero: the co-ord set. By no means new in the fashion world, matching sets have long been an office staple (after all, suiting is a workwear favourite), but lately a new breed of matching sets have begun to reign supreme and it’s the perfect solution to everyday style meets comfort. Whether it’s buttery silks in pastel hues or trending plisse perfect for work and play, there’s a string of trending sets to put on your radar right now. And the best part? The mix-and-match opportunities are endless.
Showpo’s now-cult Beca Plisse Set is one of 2022’s early standout trends, proving itself as the answer to a stylishly-put-together-without-even-trying ensemble. Better yet, it comes in a range of colours to suit every style, from neon green to effortless white.
DISSH is known for its elevated basics, which of course, also extends to effortlessly paired together sets. Our pick? The brand’s latest Campbell Set, a silky button-up and skirt combo that not only looks stylishly sleek when paired together, but easily morphs into seamless staples when worn separately.
You can never go wrong with a pair of sophisticated trousers and matching shirt, which is where Oroton’s Drill Set comes in. A modern take on traditional suiting, the set features a pair of sleek pants paired with a more oversized button-up, which can be styled in a number of ways. The set comes in Sherbert and Cognac shades, which also effortlessy weave together for those looking to go beyond the matchy-matchy look.
Offering a more casual approach to a workwear set are SHEIKE, thanks to the brand’s Whitehaven set. An easy linen pairing in a range of shades, including neutrals and a candy coral, the set is perfect for transitioning seasons. Pair with your favourite sandals or sneakers and gold accessories and you’re effortlessly put together.
As far as cementing itself as a trending set, Viktoria & Woods’ sellout Chorus Set is arguably unmatched. Chic, sophisticated and with a stylish detachable belt, the two-piece is perfect for the office and beyond, no matter which colourway you choose. Be it the brand’s chocolate variation, silky white or butter yellow, this set looks equally as elegant paired together or as separates.
Casually cool describes Stylerunner’s Resort Set to a tee, a breezy two-piece ensemble that gives an elevated edge to everyday wear. Whether you opt for the brand’s Biscuit or Striped colours, the set is stylishly simple and easily dressed up or down.
