Coordinated sweater sets looked like a thing of the past for a moment. However, recent seasons have proven that the matchy-matchy look is returning for another one. While every trend that returns to the surface, two-piece knitwear is taking a different approach to the modern era — and this time, it includes bralettes. This chic upgrade to what was once a humble pairing of shells and cardigans might seem like a bold move. That said, if you want to add a look to your wardrobe and need a simple way to slay it, the way Hailey Bieber dressed her cardigan outfit will give you an idea.
The 23-year-old model was spotted sporting a camel-hued set from Jacquemus’ Fall 2020 line in Santa Monica on October 8th. Bieber’s comfortable set includes a mohair-blend cropped cardigan and a spaghetti bralette. With the help of her stylist, Maeve Reilly, she matched the top and sweater with Levi’s high waisted jeans and Versace ‘s orange kitten heels. Together, these pieces created a relaxed ensemble with an understated touch of polish.
Bieber kept the majority of her set on the lighter side, opting for a brown belt to pull the pieces together. As for her jewels, she placed on the necklaces of Fallon Jewels and Anita Ko before completing her look with gold hoop earrings.
If you were to track back the rise of the reimagined twin set, you’re likely to land on Katie Holmes’ viral look from last fall, which featured a Khaite cardigan and bra top. Since then, there has been a ripple of knitwear pieces welcoming the fall style.
There are a lot of ways to sport the sweater ensemble this season — especially now that designers big and small have embraced the style. In case you’re not sure where to go, take a bit of Bieber’s cue and wear a neutral-hued look that goes with everything you wear. Dress them with a pair of jeans, much as the model did on a casual date. Or, wear coordinating pieces with a high waisted skirt for a dressier style. No matter how you dress your set, there’s no question that it’s going to be a staple in your wardrobe.
