INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
YOUR SHORTCUT TO SS19 SUITING
By Eleanor Dunne, 18 May 2019
Since the return of the power suit, tailored co-ords have been our go-to from work to weekend. But as the weather gets warmer, you may be wishing for a replacement as you retire your fave trews and blazer. Never fear – the shorts suit is here. An oversized blazer and three-quarter length shorts are the easiest way to get the same smart-meets-stylish look for the spring. Think Julia Roberts when she gets all fancy in Pretty Woman...
Louis Vuitton men’s artistic director and Kanye's BFF Virgil Abloh continues to make big noise with his own label Off-White and its sporty-couture aesthetic. His SS19 collection was full of bright green pops, including this lime-coloured shorts suit. On the catwalk, the look was styled with a logo tee for that streetwear vibe and a metallic bum bag that brought some futuristic feels. Citrus fresh.
At Paris Fashion Week, Xenia Adonts sported this minty ensemble that has us green with envy. Proving that the shorts suit can be a casual affair, she teamed hers with chunky Balençiaga Triple S kicks and sporty shades. We'll defo be following suit this season.
Try it on
The beauty of the shorts suit lies in its versatility – you can adapt for work, weekend and even more glam occasions like a wedding or your next big night out. Try this ASOS DESIGN combo with Perspex heels, a white crop top and some hoop earrings for a look that says you mean business on and off the dance floor.
