Where did this trend initially come from? Throwing it back to the 70s and 80s, matching sets were all the rage within the era of disco. From fitness wear, business suits, and bell-bottom styles that embraced bright colors and funky patterns. 


Fast forward to today, this fashion trend has been redefined and reinvented over the years by designers, bloggers, celebrities, and various brands. What was once geared towards an older demographic or occasion has now become a common everyday fashion statement for people.

The beauty of this long-standing trend is that there are many different approaches/ ways to rock it according to your personal brand's style. Because of its versatility, brands of different kinds have embraced this trend and tailored it for their business. There's matching apparel sets for everything from fashion-forward fits, athleisure, workout sets, to matching button-ups and shorts.  

Matching sets are ideal for screen-printing or embroidery because they allow for more opportunities for branding. Coordinated sets offer canvases for limitless creative possibilities to elevate your brand with clothing that makes a lasting impression. Let’s dive into some of our favorite matching sets!
