The matching two-piece set is set to be a go-to summer look once again. Cooler than a dress or suit, but more put together than the usual non-coordinated top and bottom, the two-piece set hits a rare sartorial sweet spot. Plus, of course, you can also wear each element separately, so you’re getting more mileage out of each item. Lately, we’ve spotted Emma Stone in a demure black knitted set at the Louis Vuitton cruise show in Italy and Kim Kardashian stepping out in a cobalt blue latex crop top and skirt from Balmain on a night out in New York—proving the trend’s versatility.

Whether your style leans sleek and sexy or boho and breezy, there’s a set that fits the bill. Simon Miller’s Mango collaboration features a tie-front top and matching pants in a patterned orange cotton that is practically begging to be brought on a Greek island vacation. Meanwhile, Dries van Noten’s sheer mesh duo is perfect for a laid back night out on the town. Need something for your best friend’s beach wedding? A mirrored tank and skirt from Wales Bonner is the cocktail look of our summer dreams. Below, all of our favorites for any occasion, from lounging on the couch to playing hostess with the mostest.
