After countless hours of watching the shows in New York, forecasting the trends, and selecting my favorite to emulate in the coming season, I had to choose a favorite trend. Enter the short suit. This daughter of the power suit and the cousin of last season's romper, isn't all work and no play. Mara Hoffman keeps it beachy and simple with a board short. Wear with casual loafers or sneakers for a fun and carefree style (Tory Burch SS13), pointy toe heels and skinny tie (J.Crew) or go totally Cher in Clueless in plaid and bright orange heels!
AS-IF you needed another reason to jump on the suit trend, this look an be done so easily in head to toe (knee cap?) VINTAGE! Don't have a matching vintage blazer and shorts? Whichever you do have, say it be the vintage blazer, pick a color in it and pair with a solid color pair of shorts in the same shade. Stick with the same fabric since you want it to look more like a set then your own pairing.
