I have a confession: I am a sucker when it comes to matching sets for summer. Any kind of outfit that allows me to get ready in a flash is a win in my book (which explains my love of dresses and jumpsuits). I mean, top and no-brainer matching bottoms? Check and check. Here are 10 cute options to keep you stylish this season.

Of course, matching sets get a leg up on dresses and jumpsuits because you’re also able to mix the pieces with other items in your closet for more outfit options.
This green paisley set I’m wearing is super fun and definitely a statement when wearing both pieces together. I plan to wear a white t-shirt tucked into the shorts (the belt is removable) with my $45 white Birkenstocks for a sportier look. SIZE NOTE: I am wearing a small in the top and a medium in the bottoms. I’m usually a S top and 4 in bottoms.
Here are a few of my favorite matching sets for summer:
Terracotta Linen Tank and Shorts Set
Maybe you recall this matching set from this post all about affordable linen basics. Maybe you remember it from this Instagram post. Either way, it’s back here and one of my favorite matching sets for summer.
The shorts feature an elastic waist for major comfort. And while the top is slightly cropped, you don’t really show any skin unless your arms are raised.
Each piece is under $50. It’s also available in a really pretty sage green.
Gingham Top and Midi Skirt Set
Gingham is totally having a moment this summer, so if you’re into this print, embrace it with a matching set.
I love the longer length of the skirt, and the set comes together, which is nice. Bonus: the skirt has an elastic waist and pockets.
