Twinning

Twin sets have made a mighty comeback this year.  Mass market and high-end brands alike have all put their own spin on the wardrobe basic.  This isn't the run of the mill department store twin set that you remember from your childhood.  This variety is well tailored and made with luxury fabric blends.  Regardless of brand preference, there are so many options out there to take your athletic wear up a notch.  This cotton blend twin set from Marc Jacobs is the perfect weight for those warmer fall days, or you can take the separates and work them in as centerpieces of other looks.  It may seem unconventional and even a little out there, but adding a few extra touches like a bomber jacket and a pair of high top sneakers can tone down the look just enough for the gym or a casual brunch.  If pattern isn't the route for you, try a solid twin set.  There are also several options with joggers in place of shorts.  If you're looking to maintain comfort while making a statement, a twin set is the way to go.
