Trends We Love: Short Suits in Prints and Textures

Short suits graced the runways for Spring '13 (Michael Kors, Helmut Lang, Rebecca Minkoff), and we couldn't wait to see them translated to more affordable ensembles we could rock. We were kind of bummed that the trend didn't blow up more because it left us with limited options. Check out the affordable little numbers you can purchase now and sport all the way through summer (or year round if you live in Miami!). We love how the use of white and cream in the below prints and textures keep these suits looking light and airy.

If none of these "perfect pairs" grab you, or if you're not ready to invest in the trend you can get a similar look by creating your own shorts + blazer combo.  Don't get caught up in trying to match fabrics and colors, mixing and matching is a way to make the outfit all your own.  We pulled together some looks to get you started- the possibilities are endless!  Happy styling!
