When it comes to easy summer styling, nothing beats the top and skirt set. The cohesive look is chic but the idea of wearing separates gives this combo more versatility than your average summer dress.

So take a cue from these celebrities who turned to their matching top and skirt for some serious day time (and night time too!) style:

1. Ashley Tisdale in Parker

Ashley Tisdale gussied up for a meeting in a Parker Nina Jacquard Knit Crop Top and matching Parker Kahlen Jacquard Knit Flared Skirt. To make the set look more interesting, she wore the IRO Ashville Leather Jacket in Noir over it and caped off the look with 3-strapped mary jane pumps. Cute!

2. Anna Faris in Tbags Los Angeles

Anna Faris exuded a sporty vibe in her Tbags Los Angeles Fit and Flare Skirt and matching Tbags Los Angeles Panama Top. The actress threw on a coat over the set and capped it off with a chain-strapped bag and a pair of black sandals.

3. Taylor Swift in Aqua

We already previously featured Taylor Swift in this ensemble but let’s have a look once again at her summer-perfect attire. The country and pop singer wore the Aqua Marled Crop Top and Aqua Marled Skater Skirt. She accessorized with a pair of blush-tone Miu Miu Crisscross Platform Sandals and a brown Bhailiu Streamlined Satchel.

4. Elle Fanning in Ellery

Elle Fanning was very visible these past few months what with her Maleficent promotions and all. The young actress pulled off this matching top and flared skirt combo from the brand Ellery for her movie’s photo call in London.

5. Jessica Alba in Tanya Taylor

We definitely love ourselves a white-on-white ensemble, particularly Jessica Alba’s Tanya Taylor Bora Floral Mesh Crop Top and Midi Skirt pairing. With that Lanvin Sugar Medium Lambskin Shoulder Bag and those comfortable flats, we’d copy this look any day!

6. Shailene Woodley in Balmain
