New Trend Alert! Suits You...

BY Rachel Ladipo 3 comments

I am pleased to announce....  the short suit trend is back!!!! Yipee.
I think i'm in love with this trend because it can be quirky or smart, it can even be feminine and casual depending on the style of the suit you chose to rock.

With this trend, it's important to pick a suit that flatters your shape, so if you are pear shaped like moi, a longer jacket and floaty shorts will look perfect and balance everything out. Both Saturdays' girls have gone for feminine, floaty suits, in on trend pastel shades. Rochelle's suit is from Lipsy and Mollie's is from Topshop. 

For those with long slim legs, shorter, tighter shorts can work. Nicole Scherzinger and Millie Mackintosh show off their endless legs in their short shorts.

For petites, it's better to opt for short shorts to elongate the legs and a cropped jacket stops you from drowning in the suit. Sam Faiers, Brandi and Rosie Fortescue have achieved the sophisticated lady look in their boucle suits. Sam's is from Lipsy, while Rosie's is from Asos.

I do have to admit, with the general fashion rule to not be too matchy, matchy, this is a trend for the more daring. To tone it down a bit you could opt for differing fabrics and colours.

Alexa Chung and Hilary Duff go for denim cut offs and structured blazers...

While Sophia Bush goes for a floaty blazer and leather shorts, also modelled on the left in Lauren Conrad's Paper Crown collection.

Cropped trouser suits are a great option for those who are a lil too shy to flash the flesh.
Bold colours are perfect for livening up the look as proved by Solange Knowles and Penelope Cruz...

A new trend upon us is print, a great way to make a statement! This suit is from Asos but I've seen plenty in other high street stores such as Topshop and River Island.
