The versatile John Lewis top and trouser set you'll wear all summer long

We're convinced this super chic two-piece set will fly off the shelves.

There's nothing like throwing on a matching set and looking put-together in seconds, especially during summer, when the last thing you want to do is rip your wardrobe apart in a fight to find something to wear. Luckily, we've just discovered the perfect monochromatic design from John Lewis that we have a feeling will fly off shelves this year.

This Abstract Spot Shirt and Abstract Spot Trousers set is not just perfect for keeping cool in hot temperatures, but looking super chic, too.

Costing £39 a piece, they're made from an easy-to-wear viscose and are the perfect blend of comfort and style. They're also not clingy, so look super flattering on, too.

Five-star reviews are already trickling in, with one shopper describing the trousers as "so versatile, and great value", while another saying, "I have bought these for my holiday in Greece and love the fluidity."

This monochrome matching set is perfect for the warm weather and this shirt is great for mixing and matching with many outfits throughout summer.

You can wear both the shirt and trousers together for a stylish co-ord (and completely new outfit), or separately paired with existing items in your wardrobe, such as with your favourite pair of jeans or a plain white t-shirt.

Available in sizes eight to 20 across both pieces, they can be dressed up or down with ease — add a pair of strappy sandals and silver jewellery for your commute to the office, or with trainers and a denim jacket for your weekend plans.

When the temperatures drop, you can also style this set all year round with a trench coat like this. (John Lewis)

Smart, functional and chic, this set is everything we want from our holiday wardrobe, too. It's perfect for balmy summer evenings by the beach or for city walking tours.

The polka dot-style print is also understated and very on-trend right now, while the relaxed cut of the shirt and straight leg trousers make for an effortless, breathable ensemble.

Well worth a spot in your wardrobe, and your suitcase, we wouldn't be surprised if this sold out.

Brand-new to John Lewis, there's only a handful of reviews on both pieces, but even then they're rated highly, averaging 4.5 and 5 out of five.

The only note made by a couple of shoppers is that the trousers do come up a bit long, so bare than in mind when purchasing.

  • "I adore these trousers, they are really flattering and the perfect length on me — I am a size 14, 5ft8. I've worn them to work with a black top and jacket, as well as casual with trainers and boxy t-shirt. They are so versatile, and great value. Lovely light, non-creasing material too.

  • "I love these trousers, they fit well are comfortable and look great. I have bought these for my holiday in Greece and love the fluidity of the trouser. Team them with a matching top or a t-shirt shirt. Can't wait to wear them."

  • "Just what l was looking for at a good price. Comfortable to wear, l went down a size as [the top] is a little boxy."

  • "Bought the top then saw the matching trousers so can be casual separates or a complete occasion outfit."

It's not the only matching set at John Lewis that's worth a spot in your shopping basket. This spring, the retailer unveiled a fetching geometric print shirt (£32) and trouser (£36) set that proved very popular.

There's only a couple of sizes left in the shirt, but the trousers are still widely in stock. Snap them up ASAP if they've caught your eye.
