Most of the girls dressed in the kind of clothes Bethie wore, skirts or Bermuda shorts, sweater sets and double-knit dresses and Ship ’n Shore blouses, with lipstick and hair teased and sprayed into bouffants or flips.

are the terms sweater sets and sweater twinsets identical?

In exhibit A, sweater set refers to the top twinset, right?

Can a sweater set also refer to a matching set of a sweater and a pants as in exhibit B?


Exhibit A

Exhibit B

Thank you.

    B is not a thing in AmE. As far as I know, there's no such thing as a twinset or sweater set for men.
