Recently, we’ve been torn between dressing to feel good and dressing to feel comfortable. These two conflict because it puts dressing up and dressing down at odds, and it’s making everyone (us) crazy. We can’t bring ourselves to sit at home in jeans or restricting clothes, but our standby sweats are getting pretty old and dingy now. Lucky, we have discovered Free People’s set category, and it changes everything.

Available in four colors, this adorable set offers comfort and style while doing the bare minimum. From their in-house FP Beach collection, this long-sleeve top and shorts set comes in an ultra-lightweight cotton-blend that works perfectly for everything from Zoom calls to taking the dog for a mid-day walk. Plus, this set will live in your wardrobe long after COVID is over. Don’t be surprised when this becomes your new favorite travel outfit, you know, once traveling is a thing again.

It wouldn’t be a summer 2020 roundup without a tie-dye set. In two different color options, this sweatshirt and shorts set is what your summer lounge dreams are made of. Basically, we won’t judge you if you buy both colors. Reviews suggest you size down for the perfect mix of fit and comfort.

For a pants option, we’re loving this ribbed sweater set with a slightly cropped, flared pant. In five stunning shades, these pieces easily transition into fall and can be worn as separates. You’re basically getting infinite outfits in one. Again, reviews mention it runs large (which is typical of FP), so don’t be afraid to size down.

When you want to wear a dress, but still feel like you’re in pajamas. This 100% cotton dress and shirt set comes in two neutral shades and is the ultimate in relaxation dressing. The dress is a classic slip dress with a few FP details, and the top is a long-line, oversized shirt. Like the Imogene above, this can easily be worn as separates or paired with other styles in your closet.

This is a three, yes, three piece set for just $128. The value for this top, bottom, and sweater set is unbelievable. Available in three earthy colors, this set offers a boxy crop top with a matching long-line cardi and wide-leg pant. This is the set that makes it look like you put a lot of work into your outfit, when actually you rolled out of bed. What’s not to love?
Esme Set (Click Here)
Rounding out this round-up is the statement Esme Set. This set comes in two colorful prints with a striped flare pant and a long-line, less structured, stripe sweater. The pants are super high-rise. All you need to do is add a bralette or tank and you’re ready to take on anything with color and personality.
