Style: Solange, Taylor Swift Double Up With Matchy-Matchy Separates

Effortless dressing gets a boost by virtue of this season's dynamic duo trend: matching tops and bottoms. Also known as co-ords, midriff-baring crop tops and high-waisted skirts graced the spring/summer 2014 runways of Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Tam and Mulberry, in prints and monochromatic hues.

Solange Knowles' insect-print twinset designed by Azede Jean-Pierre was all the, ahem, buzz at the Spotify and Troy Carter Pre-Grammy Music + Tech Party in L.A. earlier this year. "Solange is fun and confidently unapologetic," says Jean-Pierre. "This piece works well on her because it conveys her bold, free spirit."

Whether you go mild or wild, perhaps the best part of these looks is their versatility, since twofers can be worn as a unit or separately.
