Shorts Suit

Longtime readers already know that I am on the cutting edge of fashion through my writing of Burberry scarves and a suggestion of what to wear to a Steelers game. Therefore, when I see a fashion trend, I am quick (or a year behind) to report it. Today’s subject: the Shorts Suit. I have noticed several women wearing this outfit, which pairs a jacket with shorts, over the past few days. I don’t get it. A woman’s suit should be a jacket and either pants or a skirt. This look does not seem professional. Would you actually wear a shorts suit to an interview or important meeting? I think not. For the other fashion gurus out there, am I alone on this or do you agree with me?

i've seen that combo many times in the city dating back 2 summers. i guess i'm use to it. the shorts tend to be form fitting which to my eye allows the use of the jacket.

Just as I wrote, I do tend to be a few years behind any kind of fashion trend.

I don't think it replaces the suit, it just replaces another business casual option. I wouldn't wear it to an interview. I would wear it on a random day at the office.

It is a good excuse to wear shorts to work. Plain and simple.
