Despite how deep your love goes for the art of crafting an outfit, there's something to be said about pieces that make the whole ordeal feel easier. There are the more obvious staples that effortlessly add polish, like a neutral blazer or trench coat, but if you're the kind of person who's looking for something a bit bolder, consider the matching set. This wardrobe MVP is a reliable way to instantly feel put together while not, in fact, putting in much work at all.

You can think of the matching set as a one-and-done kind of situation. Whether it's a blouse and skirt in a twin print or a cable-knit cardigan and pants, the essence of a matching set is that it's like an entire outfit in one. Naturally, you can add other layers once you've got your matching set base, but with this easy-to-style duo in your closet, you won't be without an outfit again.
