25 Trendy Two Piece Dresses You’ll Love For Summer

Fashion expert, journalist and style blogger Candie Anderson of candieanderson.com has the scoop on 25 trendy two piece dresses, and skirt sets for women! They can be dressed up or down with jewelry, shoes and accessories.

 

 

Clothing sets quickly became one of the hottest fashion trends in 2020 and have been gaining popularity ever since. We went from jogger sets to short sets, and now that life is starting to get back to normal, two piece dresses are more popular than ever! I have always been a fan of this trend, especially this beautiful Black Halo dress! Two piece dresses, also known as two piece skirt sets are perfect for graduations, wedding season, date night, and more. As a petite, I am gravitating toward this silhouette since I am having the hardest time finding dresses that aren’t too long or too voluminous. It has been a struggle! I found separates fit me better, and I feel much more confident in them.

There are so many things to love about two piece dress sets. The tops can be worn with coordinating skirts or with your favorite shorts, jeans or trousers. The trendy skirts can also be dressed down with your favorite basic t-shirt, a beautiful blouse or a graphic tee to a backyard barbecue. There are so many options! I love items that do double duty as it allows you to create multiple outfits and get a lot of use out of them!

Today, I am excited to share 25 gorgeous two piece dresses in a variety of styles and lengths! I also shared tips on how you can dress them up or down for any occasion.
