Get The Look: Guide to Achieving the Indoor Matching Set Trend
Updated: May 15
As we continue and go on with our death to the jeans or anything restrictive tour our next stop the top indoor trend Matching sets. From colour blocking to the monochromatic fashion of the outside now, we have the matching set trend of the indoors. As we go into an additional three weeks, it is time to recognise this as our new normal and get into this trend.
It’s about matching print and colour.
Set: Oh Lydia Pink Power Undies (£19)
Slippers: UGG Fluff Yeah Logo Slide (£100)
Socks: Adidas White, Pink and Red Mid Cut Crew Socks (£13.00)
Mug: Yes Studio Mug, I Did Not (£ 7.16)
For a true matching set, the aim is for the outfit to look like it was initially cut from the same material and made into two garments. To get this level of matching you almost always have to purchase the clothing together, but you may get lucky and find a matching set in your closer
Matching with solid colours
Joggers: OFF WHITE Tie-dye track pants (£441)
Top: Pretty Little Thing Black Tie-dye rib racer vest (£12)
Bandana: ASOS DESIGN paisley print bandana in pink (£3.60)
Glasses: DIOR EYEWEAR Oversized square sunglasses(£287)
Necklace: Brandy Melville Gold baby nameplate necklace ($12)
Another way you can create your own matching set is by pairing print with a similar solid colour. If you own a printed top or bottom and you would like to get into the trend how about you match that printed top or bottom with a similar coloured bottom. The trick to getting the look you have to make sure the colour in the top has to be an exact match to the bottom and the solid colour garment has to be simple with no print.
Pyjamas or matching set.
Gown: MARJOLAINE Jaguar silk-satin dressing gown (£295)
Set: SHEIN Leopard Print Lace Trim Cami PJ Set. (£10.99)
Shoes: EGO Marilyn Faux Feather Pointed Toe Pyramid Heel Mule In Black Faux Suede (£19.99)
As you are beginning to notice the guide behind attaining the matching set is similar to the guide to your pyjama sets. So, the question is, Is it a loungewear matching set or Pyjama. Even before we were stuck inside the trend of silk or cotton looking pyjama sets was already out there. Take a look into your closet and find that silk pyjama with the matching robe and you will find that it is equally appropriate for the rest of your house as it is for the bedroom.
Vary the material.
Shorts: Public Desire relaxed jogger shorts co-ord (£17.99)
Top: 4th + Reckless knitted crop top with bust cup detail in white (£28)
Shoes: Alexander Mcqueen Tread Slick high-top sneakers (£490)
Necklace Orelia Chunky chain necklace (£22)
Earings: Orelia Oval Hoop Earrings (£18)
The last way you can create a matching set is to wear different garments of different material and fabric but the exact same colour. Although this is more into the monochrome fashion trend, it also resembles a matching set, and it makes it easier for you to join in.
Create your own matching set
If you do not want to purchase something new and you want to create a matching set of your own here is a way to do it. For sweats other than just matching the colour you can create a print on both sections of the sweatsuit by using tie-dye, but you have to be careful the print looks similar or continuous. You can also create an ombre effect by blending a colour into white using bleach, which may be a bit harder.
