Let us introduce you to what we're already dubbing *the* two-piece of the season.
Allow me to set the scene: it was a Friday night which meant yet another zoom call with my groupchat. Hours later and cocktails still in hand, the chat naturally progressed to reminiscing about parties. While we laughed at each of our messiest moments, the topic of party tricks came up. One friend of mine has a talent for making dirty shadow puppets, others can do the worm - but me? Well, I can almost instantly track down any given item of clothing on Instagram and find out where to buy it.
My most recent accomplishments were discovering the fashion brand that every fashion 'it' girl owns at least three dresses and a wrap skirt from. There was also the cool-girl leather blazer we can't wait to wear when we're allowed back outside again. Before that, it was discovering the gold dainty hoops that Bella Hadid can not stop wearing and only recently, it was the knitted co-ord everyone and their mother seems to be lounging in.
Although I don't have an actual party to attend where I can display these talents, I do have yet another case to crack. This time, however, the mystery lies in a distinctive and refreshingly different summer dress.
The one in question is actually a two-piece, not a dress. Undoubtedly reminiscent of fashion favourite Copenhagen-based label Cecilie Bahnsen, whose textured seersucker dresses have romanced the entire fashion crowd over recent seasons, this top-and-skirt take is actually from one of our favourite high street heroes, H&M.

Мой любимый Н&М не перестает радовать и опустошать мою кред карту :)) Практически весь ассортимент одежды и аксессуаров из последних коллекций как глоток свежего воздуха. . . Пс: ну и мои любимые датские бренды аксессуаров тоже, думаю, не оставят никого равнодушным . . #hm #hmconsciousexclusive #hmxme #hmhome #hmtrend #athomewithhm #enamel #enamelcopenhagen
This is the one that's been all over your feed - and it's easy to see why. A wrap-over blouse in an airy, pattern-weave fabric with puffed-sleeves and an almost flared waist beneath the tie, which creates the perfect shape to layer over the sibling skirt. Oh, and it's only €27.99.
It comes in sizes 4 to 22 and although it’s part of a co-ord, it looks just as good on its own styled with jeans and a strappy sandal.
