Two Piece Perfection – Must-Have Matching Sets For A Stylish Summer

Are you ready to elevate your summer wardrobe? We often talk about the ease of one-and-done dresses and jumpsuits for summer. But another simple way to create a chic, no-brainer outfit is…a matching set! Matching sets are the perfect blend of style and convenience. So, it’s effortless to look put-together for any occasion. This is exactly why they are a go-to choice for summer when you want to run out the door and not overthink your outfit. If you’re a fan of the matching sets trend, these 6 are perfect pairings. Wear these pieces together or wear them separately to maximize versatility.

Have you checked out our Summer Capsule Wardrobe yet? It includes so many summer wardrobe essentials. It’s TOO good. You can find it here.

Matching Sets for Summer

#1) Farm Rio Linen Top & Shorts Set

Let’s kick things off with this matching top and shorts combo from Farm Rio. Erin brought this set along on her recent trip to Vietnam and China (you can read more about what she packed here). She knew she’d wear the two pieces together, but also separately…ideal choices for a trip where you’re only bringing carry-on luggage!

The fabric on this set is luxe, lightweight, and wrinkle-resistant. The coordinating mixed prints, pintucks throughout the top, crochet trim, and floral buttons make this set feel SO high-end and lovely. The top would look amazing with blue or white jeans, white pants, or even a denim skirt. You can wear the shorts with a white tank or tee like Erin did or with a bodysuit underneath. The cornflower blue color with the striking coral and green accents is truly gorgeous. The nice thing about a matching set like this one is that since the pieces are sold separately, you can buy different sizes for the top and bottom if you prefer. Both pieces fit TTS.

Not sure you can wear shorts? Make sure you check out this post next for some tips and a little confidence boost!

#2) Camila Coelho Blazer & Shorts Set

This next matching set by Camila Coelho is another outfit Erin brought along on her trip to Vietnam and China. The blazer has more of a boyfriend fit, with a slimming longer length. It’s made of a mid-weight crepe fabric. The matching shorts have flattering pleats, a loose leg opening, and a waist-cinching removable belt. On her trip, Erin styled this set with sneakers, wedges, AND espadrilles so it’s definitely more versatile than you might think.  You can wear a cropped button-down like Erin did or swap that out for a simple tank for a more casual look. Plus you can easily wear the blazer with jeans or trousers. We are loving this nude toffee color, but it also comes in 4 other shades.

 Red Print Farm Rio Set

#3) Red Print Farm Rio Set

If you love a pop of red, this next set is for you! This Farm Rio set has many of the same special and luxe details as the blue set in #1. It has floral appliques, crochet trim, and beaded buttons up the back of the top. The shorts have that same wider leg which is very flattering and a removable belt. These pieces are 100% cotton so they are perfect for travel and hot days. You can wear the top with white jeans, blue jeans, or denim shorts. The shorts would look cute with a tank, tee, or white button-down.

Travis Mathew White Terry Set

#4) Travis Mathew White Terry Set

Next, we wanted to show you two sets by Travis Mathew that will be your new favorite comfies for summer. Proving you can be stylish and comfortable! The first is this all-white, retro-inspired, super soft cotton terry cloth set which would be wonderful for the beach or pool. It’s breathable, lightweight, and will absorb moisture, making it perfect over your swimsuit. Let’s start with the shorts…they are high-rise and a great length. They have pockets (yay!) and a drawstring waist. The top has a great-length kimono sleeve, flattering v-neck, and sporty/cool Johnny collar. SO chic yet it doesn’t get any easier than this! And…you can use code ERIN25 for 25% off your full-price women’s purchase!

5) Travis Mathew Cloud Terry Set

This next Travis Matthew set is also REALLY soft and comfortable. Erin’s wearing a total of three pieces including a U-neck breezy tissue top, hoodie, and shorts. All are made from the same delicious cloud terry fabric. Erin was wearing this set on our team call last week and raved about it. Plus this color is just gorgeous! It’s definitely a bit more vibrant and bright in person. You can shop more pieces from this line here.

Don’t forget you can use code ERIN25 for 25% off any full price women’s items!

Matching Sets for SummerBobi Matching Sets for summer

6) Bobi Matching Sets

Last but not least, we wanted to share these two sets by the brand Bobi. Bobi pieces are made from the softest gauzy fabric that feels great on the skin and, unlike other similar gauze garments, does not shrink in the wash. Erin has the top in black (long sleeve) and white (shorter sleeve) and while they go in and out of stock, both are available right now! The top can be worn on or off the shoulder. The shorts are fully stocked in white, but not available in black right now (we’ll link similar). They are a perfect weight for summer, have a relaxed fit, and are a nice, not too short, length.

On the right, Erin is wearing a pair of Bobi wide-leg pants from a couple of years ago and while those aren’t available, a matching white maxi skirt is, and it will give you a very similar look. These Bobi sets are great as coverups, pool-to-dinner outfits, and the perfect lightweight cotton for summer.

You can shop more Bobi mix-and-match pieces here.

  1. LOVE the site! Just wanted to share an unfortunate incident though. I ordered directly, for the first time, from Farm Rio – wanted the blue and white printed mini dress you feature and a silk scarf I saw on there site. A couple weeks went by and there was no shipping confirmation. I reached out to customer service only to have them respond that my order was cancelled due to an issue in the warehouse. No other explanation and no notice before now! Very disappointed and don’t think I’ll be ordering from them again, no matter how cute or cool the piece! Won’t buy through Anthropologie either! Wonder if anyone else has had a negative experience with this company?
    Otherwise, have been sooo happy with other suggestions! Thank you Erin!

    1. Hi Kate! Sorry you experienced those issues. Our team has not experienced similar problems at all with either retailer you mention. BUT…we are so happy to hear you are enjoying our site and suggestions. Have a great week! ~Team Busbee
