How to Wear One Matching Set 3 Ways

by Leyallday

Matching sets are a wardrobe staple for me in any season, but especially in Summer. They are great because there is no thinking required. Pop on some accessories and shoes and you’re good to go out the door. Matching sets are also essential for a wardrobe because you can mix and match the pieces with other items you already have in your closet. With this affordable matching set from Banana Republic Factory (that’s currently on sale), I’m showing you 3 ways it can be worn (but there are wayyy more than 3 ways possible). You can find the links to the matching set and shoes below.

Matching set as is. This is the matching set of a top and drawstring shorts. I’m a fan of stripes, so it caught my eye instantly. I’ve paired it with my go to sandals from Target. I have the sandals in brown and black and absolutely love them! A classic easy look perfect for almost any summer activity.




Next up, a sportier look pairing the shorts with a T-shirt and sneakers. I chose a simple white T-shirt (another year round wardrobe staple of mine), but you could really go with just about any other color. Red, for example, would give the look a pop of color.

Last, but certainly not least, pairing the top with jeggings and sandals. A nice option for a cooler Summer day or evening. The sandals are also available in black and snake print. You could switch out the sandals for a wedge or heeled sandals for a dressier look.
