Two-piece sets are the current trend, and the most popular type I've seen around involve a fitted top and a mini to midi pencil skirt. This creates an elegant silhouette from top to bottom, with a bit of skin peeking through at the midriff. It's basically a sexy bodycon dress, sliced in half around the waist!

The one I received from St Frock has a cute chevron print on a matching top and bottom, and keeps it classy with three-quarter sleeves and a skirt not too high above the knees. I prefer these sets in black and white like this one, because it's more versatile and even more so when you take the pieces separately and pair it with the rest of your wardrobe. So in this blog post I've shown some ideas on how to wear it as a combined set, and with just either the top or just the bottom piece. Also keep scrolling down to a $150 gift card Giveaway with St. Frock! :)

Styling a Two Piece Set separately
1. Bottom Piece + Fitted top for an elegant going out look

I've worn the bottom pencil skirt with two different tops. The first has an elegant high neckline cut, and I've paired with straight black hair and a simple necklace for an sophisticated going out look. This top from St. Frock is so versatile- you can pair it with anything! :)

2. Bottom Piece + Bustier for a sexy going out look

The next top I've worn the 'Off Duty' skirt with, is a sexy peplum bustier aptly called 'Date with the devil'! It's more low cut and is strapless, and I've paired it with soft curls and a bright red lippie. This outfit is another going out look with more of a glamorous, party vibe.

3. Top Piece + Jeans

The two piece sets I've been seeing a lot around lately, tend to have a cropped length top, to show off the waist. So with the top piece from the set it's best to wear it with long pants or shorts or skirts that are mid to high rise, as opposed to low. Here I've worn it with these black jeans from St. Frock, which have a cool shiny coating. Throw over a cropped jacket or a sweater and you have the perfect casual dinner look during cooler nights.
