We’ve seen the rise of the power suit over the last few years. Everyone from Gwyneth Paltrow to Ashley Madekwe has been snapped in the total statement piece. Even Solange and Mehgan Markle have rocked the style! As with all longstanding trends, it’s only a matter of time before we start to see variations make appearances on the market. Last year was the blazer dress and before that, we had the sleeveless blazer. 2019 is the year of the short suit. Swap out your tailored trousers for a cute short to create the ultimate statement summer outfit. From The Iconic to Susan to Tigerlily, everyone is jumping on board the short suit trend which means it’s even easier to find a style you’ll love in the right price range.
When shopping for a short suit this summer, look for one in light, breathable material. Natural fabrics, like linen, are great for hot, humid weather and have been gaining mainstream attention in recent years. Almost every brand is releasing linen pieces in their collections in the quest for sustainability. But linen is also great because it’s lightweight, breathable and dries quickly.
The short suit below is the first in my collection and I am loving it. Made from linen, I’ve paired it with my black slides to create a relaxed put together look. Perfect for lunch with the girls. Swap the slides for some heels and hit Bucket List for some afternoon fun in the sun.
