How to Wear Short Suits for Spring



We’ve been seeing short suits everywhere lately – on the runways, on the red carpet, and honestly, in our dreams – and it’s a sharp, stylish look that we’re hoping to channel ourselves for Spring. Designers like Carven, Jill Stuart, and Cacharel all sent sexy short looks down their runways, and celebs like Amanda Seyfried and Michelle Williams have made them look totally effortless – but when it comes to actually purchasing one, it can be hard to achieve the look without breaking the bank. So, why not shake things up (and save money in the process) by mixing and matching your short suit pieces? Not only will you score a trendy look without going breaking the bank, it’ll look a little more original and a lot more personal. We’ve put together five blazer and short combos that look sweet, charming, and undeniably cool – click through to see and shop them now.

Go bright…
How gorgeous is this bright blue blazer? We love how it looks paired with floaty, floral-print shorts.

Keep it fresh with a white blazer…
Nothing says Spring like a fresh, crisp white blazer – and these longer-cut printed shorts have a bright melon hue that pairs perfectly.

Bring out your wild side…
Hot pants and a fierce leopard-print blazer may not be an everyday look – but if you’re feeling bold, this is a great alternative look to the LBD.

We love the schoolboy charm of this piped blazer, and the striped shorts are a cute nod to nautical.

Yellow and navy always make a great color combination, and this blazer-and-short pairing is chic and subtle enough to wear to the office.
