Long pants are so passé. Wearing short pants with a suit is all the rage this season. It’s a great summery look. Dior Homme, Fendi and Versace are among the brands championing the short pants with a suit this season.
How do you pull it off?
1. Soft, pastel shades
Nothing screams spring/summer than a lighter color palette. Try soft, pastel —almost powdery— shades for a literal cool look. You’ll need it especially in high summer.
2. Loco for Mono
You know what they say. When in doubt, go for mono. To us, this is the perfect ‘short pants with a suit’ look for beginners.
3. Sock it up
Wear socks to complete that formal-casual look. You can go for a camel-hued pair like the example below or opt for wild patterns, prints, and colors. Might as well just go all the way with your fashion experimentation, right?
4. Have it tailor made
There is an abundance of ready-to-wear shorts. But to nail this ‘short pants with a suit’ look, you’ve got to have it tailor made. It should fit you well—not too tight on the crotch (avoid camel toe at all times) and sexy enough to give you a nice butt shape. Most importantly, you should be able to move comfortably.
5. Don’t skip leg day
We couldn’t stress this enough. It’s good for your health. It’s good for fashion.
Optional fashion tip: Shave your legs(?)
