The Shorts Suit

I've noticed the "shorts suit" trend in magazines and blogs for spring and summer...and it's clear that everyone feels differently about it.

I happen to LOVE this look. While most of us can't pull off short shorts to work (and rightfully so), I think this is such a classy and polished look for nighttime.

So many girls think blazers make them look boxy, heavy or masculine---and I couldn't disagree more. I love a blazer. It's a chic way to add a professional, structured touch to an ensemble without putting on the is-this-cardigan-mine-or-my-grandmother's.

I purchased a lightweight, feminine, scalloped-edged "shorts suit" from H&M recently and while I've worn them separately, I'm looking forward to the opportunity to whip them out together.

Interested in the shorts suit look? Keep in mind you don't have to make it matchy-matchy, just pair a blazer with some summer shorts and wedges to create a version of this look you're comfortable with.
