Shorts Suits Bring Business to Summer

May 30, 2006 at 3:00 pm by Designer Ella

A trend for the summer, as reported by What Not to Wear’s Stacy London, is the shorts suit (or the cropped suit). It’s good for casual business and is perfect for the weather. But remember your company’s dress code and remember the temperature air conditioners leave your office. Shorts are hot hot right now, and cropped- or short-sleeved blazers pass through different temps while flattering, so these pieces are also great as mixable separates.

What’s the right length? Knee-length and the classic styles are both in and strong this year. Keep it classy and keep the shapes and details correct for your body type.

Stacy suggests for petite women to keep the length of the shorts above the knee. Yes, this is a bit oxymoronic relating to how physics mixes with actual products of the season (the Bermuda-length shorts), but Stacy would just reply that the shorts just need to be hemmed.

Cuffs and pleats make a difference, too, if you’re wider in your mid-bottom, keep the lines straight and simple.

    I remeber when I was in Paris in January 2006, I saw maybe 5 or 6 girls in shorts. I was looking at them with big big eyes and thought “hmmmmmm shorts will be hot this summer”. I saw some pairs in Paris shopa that time, but havent bought. I still dont have them. Mb its time to buy ones?:)

    I wish I had the body for those pleated shorts. If my thighs do get petite, I’m sure the trend will be gone.

    Speaking of … exercise time, my dears!
