Ordinarily, you wouldn’t catch me in a pair of shorts unless I was on the beach. I never considered wearing them to the office, out for drinks—basically, anywhere that doesn’t require sunscreen. Yet I now find myself pining after all the short suits I keep seeing on stylish women everywhere. Crafted in a Miami Vice palette of cream, mauve, beige and cornflower blue, linen textures are proving particularly popular, while silhouettes are slouchy and effortless.
Styling-wise, strappy sandals and muted-hue camisoles are good bets, as are layered necklaces, shoulder bags and statement sunnies. Of course, there are plenty of designer options out there but, after spending copious amounts of time searching the internet for my dream short suit, I found that many of the best styles are available on the high street, with affordable price tags to match. Keep scrolling to see how the masses are wearing them; then proceed to shop the best high-street short suits on offer.
