Maybe I’m just filled with anticipation for Halloween, but I’ve been craving black from head to toe. To my delight (but unfortunately to my wallet’s dismay), matching sheer black sets have made a noticeable appearance in stores and the online style scene this fall. And why shouldn’t they enjoy their time in the limelight?
Coordinating sets make a great addition to any wardrobe. Think of them as a uniform (a much more fashionable uniform) that you can throw on and appear effortlessly put-together. Truthfully, there’s zero thought required–and that certainly saves time and agony when getting dressed in the morning.
But wait, there’s more! Separate coordinating pieces and you can easily create a host of new looks with what’s already in your closet. Sheer black top, meet dress slacks and blazer. Go forth and be best of friends. Really, the best part about matching sets is mixing them up with your other beloved style staples.
Here, I paired a sheer Zara top with its matching bottom, a delicate midi skirt. Frilly details and peek-a-boo fabrics in black come together for a look that’s a touch dark and edgy, but still
sweet and sophisticated. Plus, there are polka dots. What more could you really ask for? Though this particular sheer black set put me in spooky mood for October, I plan to recycle the pieces for seasons to come. Talk about a chic upgrade for Halloween–not that I didn’t fully enjoy last year’s costume as you can see here.
