13 of the best looks from ‘Set It Up’

The characters in this movie knew how to dress well. Netflix

Netflix’s rom-com game seriously came to play in 2018, and one of the standout original features was “Set it Up.”

The film stars Zoey Deutch and Glen Powell as Harper and Charlie, two overworked assistants. In an effort to get their bosses out of the office and away from micromanaging their lives, they conspire to help them fall in love – and find each other along the way.

The movie was a big hit for viewers, and it delivers on much more than just a charming storyline front.

Between Harper’s effortlessly casual, yet professional wear and co-star Lucy Liu’s power dresses and suits, it’s a fashion feast.

Here are the 13 best looks from the movie.

Then there’s Lucy Liu, who knows how to power dress.
