Short and Sweet

Shorts weather is finally here, and we can’t wait to wear a trendy shorts suit. A minimal black and white print like this one ensures the match-matchy look doesn’t overwhelm you. Three rules apply when picking out your suit. First make sure the shorts are shorter than Bermudas (which can look dowdy), but longer than cutoffs (which only work if you’re 16). Then go for simple accessories. We paired basic earrings with a magenta tote for daytime and a canary yellow clutch at night. The bags add subtle pops of color without competing with the patterned suit. Lastly, avoid sky-high stilettos! Mid-level pumps or flats keep the outfit classy and chic.

  1. There is something effortlessly so cool about the short suit, back again this summer and everyone is so glad to see its return. This season however, there is a change .i.e. it is no longer just for women, menswear suits has also been launched. As they are perfect for city breaks, they look effortless for summer weddings & for all sort of recreational activities. Suits does have a stigma attached to them, that People mostly like to wear it for work and nothing else, now is the time to break this vicious cycle and begin to view the humble suit differently. The beauty of a shorts suit, is that it can work for a wide variety of fashion styles.
