I really thought I was going to hate short suits. I really did. At first mention, all I can picture are some old-school country club ladies who lunch in their pastels, loafers and pearls. Nothing wrong with that, just totally not my style.
But then they happened. And I found myself becoming OK with the edgier, more fashion-forward takes on the short suit (essentially tailored shorts paired with a matching blazer). And then I found myself really wanting one. There’s just something about them that feels cool and approachable while still being fashion-forward and, most importantly, work appropriate. I can’t decide which version I like more: an all-over bold color like red, or a funky, eye-catching pattern. I’m currently on the hunt for a pair that feels like me–maybe something similar to that chambray up there? Long live the short suit!
