I am loving the play on menswear, which is always a favorite among numerous designers. For spring 2012, I am enamored with the shorts suit. It is probably one of my favorite trends, considering it is so easy to wear. Check out one of my articles I wrote on How To Wear A Shorts Suit. As we are getting closer to fall, the shorts suit would be a perfect addition to your autumn apparel. Pair your favorite blazer with a slouchy sweater, leather shorts, thick knit tights, and lace-up ankle boots. Layer a leopard scarf around your neck for extra warmth and interest. Not comfortable wearing shorts in the fall? A blazer can be worn with anything from wide-leg denim to a comfy sweater dress. I have noticed more and more shorts suits on the runway. These photos below were some of my favorite outfit inspirations. It is strange to be looking at runway shows geared toward spring weather, when we are approaching the holiday season. But, as you know, fashion forward. Hope you'll find these images inspiring enough to incorporate the shorts suit into your wardrobe, no matter what season.
