toofer

(If you got the 30 rock reference, have a bag of sabor de soledad on me.)

Coordinating sets, or as I will call them from here on out, toofers, aren't anything new to the interwebs. They've held a pretty constant presence in the world of fash-un for the past few years, with spikes in popularity when spring/ summer comes around (probably because there are less people able to work the head to toe knit look without looking like a fluffy turd, myself included.)

When paired together, they're basically a ready made outfit. And a polished one at that. It's a dream come true for someone who wants to be stylish, but also doesn't want to put in much effort-- aka me. But then you also have the option of wearing them with other pieces, increasing their versatility and giving you a real bang for your buck.

After this past weekend, I can finally say I am #teamtoofer after I found the most perfect set at forever 21. It's taken me the longest time to jump on the bandwagon, but now that I'm here, I'm never going back. I still do have the same hesitations from before I joined the gang: cost, fit, fabric choice, print, and then cost again. If you walked around the women's section at Bloomingdale's last weekend like I did, you're guaranteed to have seen at least a few mannequins dressed in their super chic, matching ensembles. Unfortunately, they're also super expensive. But hey, that's what sales (and birthdays) are for ;) But in the mean time, here are some more affordable options to contemplate.

Are you also on #teamtoofer? Do you have any recommendations for any cute twosies (as asos seems to call them)? If so, please share!

  6. I actually love this trend, even though I am a bit old for cropped tops. I like it when the top hits the waist band, so it looks like a romper or dress! Cute picks! Susan

  16. Me tooo, I'm definitely team toofers. I more like them from Asos, they are more casual and edgy -not really feminine-

  18. I love that second outfit (the yellow one with floral print). It looks so chic and expensive. I love toofers because you can wear them together or pair each piece separately with a basic top or bottom. So pretty!

  29. They are lovely, I have always thought they are cool but not on me. I am very busty so it would be rather unflattering on me!

  37. Two piece sets are our favorite!!! They just make life so easy and if we could wear them everyday without looking like a crazy person, we so would! Those two yellow sets are the cutes and adoring the blue shorts set too!
