An updated take on office wear, the summer suit is comprised of a sharp blazer and chic shorts (which also happens to be a very of-the-moment trend in its own right).
DKNY, Stella McCartney, Chris Benz, and Charlotte Ronson were some of the designers who sent pretty pairings down the runway for spring/summer.
In each of their looks, the blazer is a bit oversized (more like a boyfriend version), and the shorts range from bitty to a longer length, like a culotte. We recommend the teeny shorts for the younger set (but be sure that's its office appropriate before you do so).
Not much is needed in terms of accompanying garments to complete this ensemble. Let the suit be the power player and keep your shirt and shoes modest. Adding some color is fine, but make sure that the overall effect is still professional. Save the hot pants and heels combo for the clubs!
