Match them or mix them up.
If you’re looking for an easy outfit formula this season, we highly recommend going with a matching two-piece. Not only are they easy to throw together on busy days, but the coordinating pieces make for an incredibly put-together look that takes minimal effort.
Two-piece outfits can be worn anytime of year, but we’re particularly excited to start wearing them in warmer fall fabrics and silhouettes. Tweeds, knits, and denim sets are some of the combinations you can wear this fall, while suit sets, maxiskirts, and oversized blazers are silhouettes that you simply can’t go wrong with.
And the best part? The two matching elements can also be used interchangeably with so many other items in your wardrobe. For instance, you can wear the top part with an on-trend denim skirt, or wear the bottoms with a graphic tee. Double the outfits, double the fun.
To help spark some inspiration, we’ve gathered 14 two-piece outfit ideas that can be worn throughout fall and then some.
A Tweed Jacket and Shorts
With the “quiet luxury” trend in its peak stages, there’s no better time to embrace an all-tweed outfit. A tweed jacket and matching shorts or a skirt is a perfect pairing for days you’re wanting to feel a little more polished, but still fashion-forward. This outfit would pair well with a heels and a jacket for added warmth on cool fall days.
A Button-Up Vest and Trousers
A button up vest and matching trousers is a simple and understated combination that can be worn as a stylish office outfit but also easily transition to happy hour with friends. The outfit pairs well with kitten heels, but can also be worn with tennis shoes, depending on your needed level of comfort for the day.
Red to Toe
Wearing a head-to-toe red outfit can be great for days when you need an extra boost of energy beyond your regular Starbucks order. Bold and eye-catching, an all-red outfit combination works best on the days you feel like standing out in the crowd. You can also tone down the look a bit with knit textures or turn up the volume with all leather.
Denim on Denim
Ever since Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake made waves in their all denim attire on the VMAs red carpet in 2001, we still can’t get over the matching outfit combo. A trend of 2023, denim maxiskirts are a great way to enter the denim-on-denim conversation, but of course it can be done with jeans as well. Find a matching denim crop top or jacket to complete the look. And if you really want to go all out, you could pair the outfit with matching denim boots and a bag — why not?
A Knit Long-Sleeve and Maxiskirt
If you’re feeling like having a comfy and cozy fall day, you simply cannot miss with a coordinating knit set. The combination is easy to throw together on cool fall days, and though it’s a simple and comfortable pairing, it can still look incredibly stylish, especially with the right accessories.
A Monochromatic Suit Set
There’s something about a monochromatic suit set that draws the eye in. No matter what color you select, the outfit seems to always look stylish, especially when the pieces are slightly oversized. Select a beautiful fall color like brown to fit the season or stand out in a bold jewel tone.
A ‘90s-Glam Suit Set
If your current style icon is Meredith Blake in The Parent Trap, well, same — and you’ve found your next look. Another trend of 2023, this matching set is another winning combination to wear this season.
A Lace Top and Skirt
We may think of lace as more of a summer fabric, but it can also make a great outfit for fall when worn warm enough. To master lace in the fall, make sure that you’re either wearing a sleeve top, pants, or a maxiskirt to keep yourself warm. And if it’s an especially brisk fall day, you may want to layer it with a coat as well.
A Satin Crop Top and Slip Skirt
Paired with a turtleneck and knee-high boots, this warm-weather look transitions well into fall, too. The shiny, sophisticated is both effortless and comfortable — perfect for a fall brunch with friends.
An Animal Print Jacket and Skirt
Bold and stylish, a matching animal-print set is great for days when you’re wanting to feel extra fierce. No matter what kind of matching animal print co-ords you may select, the look will definitely help give you a boost of confidence.
A Checkered Blazer and Skirt
There’s nothing that says fall quite like a black and white checkered print, but when made into a cute oversized blazer and matching skirt, it adds a fashion-y vibe we love. Pair it with boots for some extra edge or flats when you want to stay comfortable.
Flowy Pants and a Button Up
What I love about this set is that on the surface, it’s effortlessly stylish, but is actually also comfortable wear. It can be worn for a relaxing wine and charcuterie night at home with friends, but can also be dressed up and accessorized with some jewelry, heels, and a bag to wear out and about.
A Leather Blazer and Skirt
We always get excited to break out our favorite leather pieces this time of year, but why not take it to the next level by wearing it head to toe? The full leather look isn’t just cool to look at, but will also keep you warm on a brisk day.
A Quilted Jacket and Skirt
We’re all about a quilted texture, and it doesn’t need to be reserved exclusively for jackets. Yes, the fabric is cute but it’s also thick and warm, which will also protect you from the elements.
