I am so excited to share this Eliza J dress with you today. First off, it reminds me of Spring, and I am already wanting that to come REAL bad. I’m over the snow already. Second, it’s a two piece dress set! I honestly don’t really own any two piece sets, so was really excited to pick up this one! Third, it’s 40% off RIGHT NOW, right here (and I am not sure when the sale ends)! But for this look, I wanted to show you how I styled this set 3 different ways! Hope it inspires all of you to look at two piece sets differently and realize how versatile they are!

1. Two Piece Dress Set as is

Well so the first way I styled it is exactly what it was meant to be, as a two piece set, HA! I could see myself wearing this look for a girl’s brunch, date night or happy hour. Throw on a blazer and it’s perfect for work!

Shoes: J.Crew Factory
Bag: Chloe
Necklace: eNVe Designs
Watch: Arvo Watches

2) Styled with the Skirt

So instead of showing you three ways to style it with the set, I actually turned the look into separates. I have a thing for floral skirts and pattern mixing them with stripes is my fave. I love this look for a chic work look!


Outfit #2 Details:

Top: J.Crew
Skirt c/o Eliza J
Blazer: Forever 21
Shoes: Sam Edelman
Bag: Charlotte + Asher
Watch: Arvo Watches

3) Styled with the Crop Top

This might be my favorite look of the bunch, but I just styled the top by itself. Because typically the tops of a two piece set are crop tops and I didn’t want to bare my belly in the winter for you, I styled this look with a blouse underneath and some jeans! I dressed up it a little with the heels and bag to show you how I would wear it going out with my girl friends or date night! 😉 If you swapped the heels for flats, it could totally be a more casual look!

    I always enjoy seeing and styling pieces in multiple ways. First of all, how adorable is that pink floral pattern. LOVE!!! Great ways to style the two piece set. I absolutely love the striped top/skirt combo, and the striped pumps pattern mixing in the two pieces worn together. XOXO, Elif

    I like closet pieces that you can break them up and mix and match like you did, its total bang for your buck to get more use and outfits out of it. The third look is so unexpected and works well all together.

    Love that you paired that gorgeous floral print with different patterns.

    This dress set is so fun Sandy! I love all 3 ways you styled it, but I think my favorite is the skirt paired with stripes–that’s a favorite pattern mix of mine too. This is making me wish for spring!!

    Stunning looks! Love the pattern mixing and versatility. So many different occasions where this would be appropriate and fun. Great ideas!!

    Sandy, I love all three ways you styled it! They are each so professional and cute! So versatile, you’re right!

    What a fun idea for a dress – the two pieces are really pretty together and separate, I love how you styled them!

    Sandy, I love the second outfit with the striped top so much!! I find it great how you can mix and match these pieces or wear them together, I just haven’t found a set I really want for myself yet though.

    Wow, LOVE these versatile pieces! Great styling!

    I am SO enamoured of your hair!!! That braid, it truly represents the phrase “crowning glory”, and I’m with you, that third look is epic. Mine if I borrow it?? GRIN xoxo

    I’m in love with those shoes! And you made ALL of these outfits so chic and stylish! Rose and pink are becoming some of my favorite colors…nice for a transition into Spring too!

    Wow, you seriously have such a gift for putting together GORGEOUS outfits!

    All three are incredible! I love your style. The third outfit is daring but you make it seem so easy and comfortable. Love it all.
