Don't Question The Double-Sweater Trend — Just Go With It

Sometimes life hands you lemons that you need to turn into lemonade. And, sometimes life straight-up hands you lemonade — and it tastes good. In this case, lemonade comes in the form of this fortuitously timed trend: the matching sweater set. Coming in pant, skirt, and dress form and paired with a cardigan or pullover, the coordinating fuzzy two-piece feels so wrong...but only because it literally feels so right. When's the next time a trend will come around that basically lets you enter public as a human skein of yarn? Just run with it. Embrace it. Accept the lemonade. Click through for reasons to drink up.
