Designer Phillip Lim debuted his women's clothing brand 3.1 Phillip Lim in 2004 and became an overnight sensation among It girls and the fashion press. Cool, contemporary and often quirky, 3.1 Phillip Lim makes heavy use of innovative fabrics, unique patterns and crisp tailoring — think sequined shift dresses, chiffon trench coats, multicolored sandals, and sleek leather handbags like the super-roomy Pashli satchel. For men, Lim’s collection includes upscale athletic jackets and futuristic slim-fit utility pants with Trapunto cording, as well as straightforward pullovers and tailored shorts. Lim's refined yet laid-back women’s clothing, shoes and accessories won him acclaim from the CFDA, which honored him with an award in 2007.

Long gone, thanks to spring 2014’s fresh take on the matching top-and-bottom combo. “We saw so many matching sets on the spring runways, and it’s a nice way to inject color and print into your daytime look,” says Joyann King, Digital Director of Harper’s Bazaar. Her smart advice for wearing it? “I definitely recommend buying the full ‘set’, but with plans to style the pieces individually, as well.” Let her chic Suno look inspire you, then shop the sale to get in on the matching action this season.
