January has finally drawn to a close, the days are getting ever so slightly longer and, at last, it feels as if spring might be on the horizon, which means we can start thinking about how to prep our wardrobes for the new season. If you are hoping to inject a hint of something fresh into your look, but are not willing to embrace eccentric hats, tangerine hues or polka dots, there is one versatile catwalk trend that we think you should consider for the season ahead: the short suit.
A more relaxed take on tailoring, the short suit has seen a resurgence on the catwalk for the past few seasons, popping up at numerous shows for spring/summer 2019 and emerging even more evidently for SS20. Now an undeniable trend for the upcoming season (prepare to see these all over Instagram), there are plenty of ways to make the co-ord work for you, whether it is for the office, off-duty or even dressed up for the evening.
From sharply tailored to more relaxed, linen to leather, here’s how the trend played out on the catwalk, and how to embrace it yourself.
