When I spotted several matched sets on Shopbop’s homepage last week, I had a Veruca Salt kind of moment. As in “I Want it Now,” though I wasn’t thrown down a garbage chute later. But seriously, I still want both styles of every pattern that was featured.

I don’t think it’s too much to ask since since such pieces can be worn together or alone, ready and able to achieve a different look every time.
.
Tibi’s Starfish print has me longing for the beach, and I love it both as a cami and a pleated pant. The print pulls a punch, but this style can certainly be worn together. To convince the purchase of both pieces, just imagine all the versatility.
.
For a laid back look, try the cami with a bright, simple pant like this from J.Crew and fun shoes like these from Zara. Add a chambray shirt for fun, or leave it alone if the weather’s right. Always a fan of graphic prints, I love the starry pant paired with Zoe Karssen Madame Sweatshirt and Charlotte Olympia’s unreal Velvet Kitty Flat.

And then there are the nights we felt alive. I’m obsessed with the perfect structure of sass & bide’s to laugh out loud skirt, and its black and white features undoubtedly complement the tank. Gold accents, such as these Tory Burch babes, complete a fun nighttime look. For warmth on the legs, Tibi’s pant look great with this Equipment blouse and Cole Haan’s Chelsea Strap Sandal.
.
And then there’s Club Monaco, a more recent discovery of mine. Along with other in-store items, I’ve also been missing out on their amazing printed set. Like many jackets, the Baker Blazer could be your wardrobe staple, and what a plus that it’s floral and gorge. For casual affairs à la lunching or shopping, the piece looks fantastic with a pair of boyfriend jeans like these and a comfy James Perse tee. I’m super into the daintiness of Tory Burch’s black Verity Ballet flat, which is available in brown, too.
.
Their Sonica Botanical Skinny Pant is fantastic, and also easy to pair for those casual occassions. I’m an all-around fan of sneaker wedges, making these neutral Ash ones a great choice. The pink shade of this A.P.C coral sweatshirt pairs well with the wild(er) bottoms, pulling out the pinks of the pant.

Both Club Monaco picks can also be snazzed up for evenings. The blazer is chic with my recent obsession – this short dress by Boy by Band of Outsiders. Zara obviously makes a great pair of shoes, and these heels are no exception. As for the pant, I like it with neutrals. A silk blouse like this one and Michael Kors’ Adrielle pump really pull the look together.

Are you Veruca Salt’ing over all of this too, or am I the only one crazy for printed pairings?
