The versatile holiday wardrobe we all need

Words by Flora Macdonald Johnston

I often think that if we all wore matching sets life would be a whole lot easier. When the summer months hit, we have more important things to worry about than constantly creating outfits – there are poolsides to lounge by, seaside towns to explore and rooftop clubs to dance on, after all.

The matching set offers the perfect solution to the budding schedule woes that each summer brings, simply throw it on and you’re ready from head to toe. Plus, bring a few sets in your holiday suitcase and you can always mix and match with your other key pieces to expand your wardrobe that little bit further, and is that not just the greatest?

So, here are a few of my top matching sets for summer and why they deserve to join you on holiday.

OSEREE

This set was made for a dance floor. Oseree, a cult favourite amongst celebrities such as Dua Lipa and Rihanna, epitomises a 90s rave aesthetic. Created in comfortable lamé with metallic detailing, you’ll outshine any crowd in these. For those who don’t wish to bare all with the matching bikini top, simply grab an unbuttoned crisp white shirt with rolled-up sleeves for a more laissez-faire look.

TOMBOLO

KOIBIRD is renowned for offering exlcsuive pieces, and it doesn’t get much more exclusive than our new collaboration with US label Tombolo, known for their creative use of towelling. With a special guest appearance from the KOIBIRD fashion frog, our comfy set is begging to be worn while travelling through VIP airport lounges or perhaps sitting by the pool with your morning oat milk matcha.

CHRISTOPHER ESBER

Aussie designer Christopher Esber is a master of contemporary tailoring, as encapsulated in this matching black crop top and skirt. Featuring natural rock ring detailing on the hip and side bust, this ribbed ensemble is the ideal holiday companion. Wear with an oversized linen blazer and your favourite sandals when visiting a chic restaurant at night.

HELMSTEAD

I love a cute knitted number, and I love one even more when it features pastel hues and cute ocean prints. Whether worn with trainers or sandals, this knitted two-piece is perfect for a casual day look on holiday. I also think the vest is incredibly versatile – style with wide-leg floaty trousers or your favourite skirt if you feel like mixing and matching.

RHODE

Features a flattering scoop neck with a tie-front closure (which I would wear open over a bikini on a hot summer day) and matching A-line shorts, it's the small details that make this Rhode set so charming. Pair with your favourite chunky sandals while exploring a picturesque beachside town.
