A rather untraditional summer is calling for just that—untraditional trends that maintain a laid-back, but still stylish, approach to our new reality. Enter: The matching set. But this isn't the one you've worn to rooftop drinks or music festivals. Rather, this summer's set consists of a button-up blouse, preferably worn tied up or left unbuttoned over a bikini or a bra top, and coordinating trousers of the high-rise, loose-cut variety. Whether in a silky fabric, soft knit, or nostalgic print, the flowy pieces look elevated yet are utterly comfortable for lounging around all day in. Plus, each piece can easily be worn separately for even more wear. Here are a few of my favorites for you to consider mixing your summer wardrobe up with.

The Sexy Set.
Who said a matching top and trousers had to be dull? A sultry see-through fabric or a sexy metallic style still brings the heat.
437 The Spencer Shirt, $85 and The Cleo Pant, $75
NANUSHKA Lozan Shirt, $159 and Toli Trousers, $127
The Wild Set.
Play tourist for a day in a cheeky animal print set. When juxtaposed against a black bra top, sleek slides, and simple jewelry, it's anything but tacky.
FAITHFUL THE BRAND Charlita Shirt, $169 and Lena Pants, $219
MIGUELINA Marcy Top, $148 and Pamela Pants, $225
The Knitted Set.
Just like the pandemic, elevated loungewear isn't going anywhere anytime soon. If you haven't already scooped up matching ribbed-knit sweats, one of these sets will check off two trends at once.
& OTHER STORIES Fitted Shirt, $69 and Flared Trousers, $69
THE LINE BY K Daisy Cardigan, $159 and Daisy Pants, $179
The Floral Set.
My personal summer aesthetic is one of these throwback floral print sets layered over a bikini or lacey bralette, I can't think of anything better.
GANNI Printed Shirt, $132 and Printed Pants, $148
ARITZIA Twain Button Up, $69 and Donna Pant, $60
The Mini Set.
If a head-to-toe matching ensemble is too bold for your liking, try a cropped button-up or tie-front blouse with a mini skirt to ease into the trend instead.
WE WORE WHAT Bisou Top, $160 and Chloe Skirt, $195
SIR THE LABEL Maja Top, $160 and Alena Skirt, $180

The inspiration.
Proof I'm not making this up. 

The next edition.
Loungewear aside, today should be recognized as a national holiday. Sign this petition to help make Juneteenth a day to celebrate—and keep fighting for—freedom for all.
