As a Fashion Blogger, a lot of what I write is mere opinion. When a new trend comes out, it's my job to try the trend and let my followers know what I think about it. It's really the ultimate compliment when someone reads my blog, because they are putting their trust in my fashion opinion. I want to give all of you a huge THANK YOU! A Fashion Blogger is nothing if they don't have followers and the fact that I have thousands reaffirms that I just might know a thing or two about this stuff.
Last night as I was thumbing through one of my favorite fashion magazines, InStyle, and came across a two-page spread featuring a look that I blogged about last month, Matching Sets. I said out loud, "See? See this? I just blogged about this look last month!" Everyone was sleeping, so I was totally talking to myself, but at that moment, I felt damn good. There was actual proof that a trend I anticipated being huge this summer was right on point.
InStyle Magazine featured the look with lots of crop top options, focusing on making the look more sophisticated. But matching sets don't have to have a crop top look to ensure you don't look like a 5 year old. If you're wearing a fuller or longer skirt, the crop top will help break the pattern up so your body doesn't get lost. If you're not into baring your midriff, pairing a short sleeve top with a short skirt or shorts, the top and bottom can not only touch, but overlap a bit. For example, see my matching set look below.
Summer is here... unless you live in Maine like me and summer is "almost" here. Take my fashion (and InStyle's) advice and try a matching set. You're guaranteed to have a complete look without wondering what to wear with each piece. The best part is you can mix and match and turn your matching set into several looks. It's fun, it's flirty and it's right on trend for summer!
