Style Series: Pink Blazer Edition; The Short Suit

May 9, 2018

Look 2 of my new monthly style series, "one piece, three ways", was a no brainer for me, shorts!   Short suits are a fun twist on the pants suit that is really on trend this season and I am LOVING IT!  I found these trouser shorts on banana republic's clearance sale two years ago.  Now I know that, depending on your field, wearing shorts to work could be risqué.  As you know I am a higher ed professional in a school of architecture so I can "get away" with wearing shorts, given the creativity of the field I work in. I was bold enough to pair these shorts a week ago with an oversized, double breasted blazer and no one blinked an eye.  I do think fit has a lot to do with what is office appropriate, these trouser shorts are high waisted, wide legged and hit the mid-thigh.  They are fitted where they should be (at the waist) and loose where they should be the thigh.  It is perfect!  Now if the length makes you a little nervous I have included a few longer options below.  Keep scrolling to add pieces to recreate this look

Style Tip: If you are bold enough to try this look in the office pair it with an oversized blazer that hits just above the middle of your thigh, its all about proportions.

No bloggers were injured during this shoot, lol. 

Thanks for reading! Look 3 will be hitting the blog on Friday! Stay tuned.
