The Short Suit

I've started to notice that quite a lot of places are now selling 'The Short Suit'. I think it's a really refreshing concept, so I've had a look around and scouted out my favourite four looks. My favourites are the Asos and Lipsy versions, and they're the cheapest too! 
The Pixie Lott for Lipsy version is so Chanel esq and only a fraction of the cost; it's definitely the definition of sophisticated glamour. I also adore the yellow piping on the Asos version. It's such a lovely way to brighten up a winter day.
I think this is a really good outfit for a day at the office and has a definite fashionable spin on the regular trouser suit. What's also really great is that you can wear the jacket or the shorts separately with other pieces giving you lots of outfit options. I'd wear mine with a crisp white shirt and a day heel or a jewelled ballet pump. All I need to do now is find a fabulous job to wear it to!


  1. Thanks for this post- it makes thinking of work wear for the up coming Summer months much more interesting.
    I was always weary of shorts to work, but seeing how it can be paired with a matching blazer here makes it look quite sophisticated and appealing. And, having the potion of mixing and matching too...

  2. I love this look, although I've never had a job where you could wear shorts, lol. If I did I would totally wear one. Esp that one from Asos with the yellow trim *wow*! (SN)Kourtney Kardashian knows how to wear a short suit as well, I've seen her in one on more than one occasion. Love it!
