    Top Tips

    • Spend time finding the right cut for both the blazer and shorts, so you have the versatility of wearing the pieces separately too
    • Looser-fitting shorts are a must to keep the look cool, and we’d opt for a slightly longer cut for both the shorts and blazer. If you need to, size up to get that perfect nonchalant slouch
    • Consider where you’ll be wearing this: a linen suit is casual but perfect for summer in the city, while lightweight wool is structured and therefore more formal

    Short Suits

    Come summer, a pair of shorts is a staple in my wardrobe because they’re as stylish and easy to wear as a skirt, but even more practical. The suiting trend shows no sign of going anywhere, so naturally the summer take on this is right up my street. A short suit may seem like a bit of a style statement, but with our unpredictable weather it’s actually the ideal sartorial solution, and the variety of cuts and fabrics means there’s a version to suit everyone.

    Top Tips

    • Weather-dependent, wear with loafers, espadrilles, trainers or even a sandal with a low heel for an event, and alternate between a city basket, classic tote or evening clutch
    • Day to day, layer with a t-shirt or camisole; for evening, something more statement-making like a halter-neck or embellished piece works well
    • If you want to dip your toe, pair a blazer already in your wardrobe with tailored shorts in a tonal shade and see if you’re convinced
