Don’t get shocked tomorrow when someone say shorts-suits have become the new business suit for woman. I want to thank that person or brand whoever came up with this design. In the list of women’s suits , I feel this is the coolest one as I can wear it while travelling or a semi casual meeting or and event.
As per my own experience, I have worn my one and only pair of shorts suit twice in a semi formal event setting and both the time I was praised for my look online and offline which led me to write a whole blog for this look of mine.
First time I wore it at XIXILI show in Malaysia and today for the second time at the launch of Honor9N
My 5 reasons why you should definitely get one for yourself –
1 YOU CAN TOTALLY NAIL SHORT-SUIT IN THE OFFICE
If there isn’t a dress code as strictly formal at your office, you can totally go for shorts business suits. Lucky for me I worked in fashion and my earlier boss was cool to let me wear shorts at office when I used to work 9 to 5 , but hey you have an option now because shorts suit are one of the biggest trends of 2018 ( if you are a trends follower ). The jacket adds up the right amount of formal touch. You can still keep it casual by pairing it with a cool T-shirt or a tank top.
2. MORE COMFORTABLE & AIRY THAN TROUSERS AND PETITE BODY HUGGING FORMAL DRESSES
Trust me, no one wants to wear those pencil skirts and pumps for 9 hours. I used to take off my heels whenever I got a chance below my work desk. These super cute short suits look so cool with kicks or shoes ( and who wouldn’t feel comfortable in shoes ).
3. SHORT-SUITS ARE SUPER-VERSATILE & CAN BE TAKEN EASILY FROM DAY TO NIGHT
A little change of hair do, move from a neutral lip color to a bright one, put on those pumps and you can easily switch from a day to a night look. A structured black bag great counterpoint to this summery look, as it instantly smartens the outfit. Feel free to match your accessories to your bag’s hardware with layered necklaces and rings.
4. HOW DO WE APPROACH DRESSING FOR WORK IN THIS HEAT & HUMIDITY? ENTERS “THE SHORT SUIT”
Linen is a go-to material for the summer months in India and a linen blazer is the perfect smart casual attire. The fabric keeps your body temperature cooler than usual. Love the look even more when it’s matchy-matchy, and the best part is that the market is full of such sets right now. A few brands who have these sets already are Only, Zara, H&M , River Island.
5. MEGAN MARKLE IS WEARING IT , NEED I SAY MORE!?
Where to buy women’s suits ?
I am wearing a linen suit but Only, There are other brands like ZARA, H&M, River Island who sell these suits or even jackets and shorts separately . You can shop separates and put it together as a look.
