Comfort meets sophisticated with the new suit and I’m all for it. You can’t deny that comfort is cool and with casual suits hitting the runway from all the best designers – from The Row to Oscar de la Renta – all styled with a fresh new spin. We’re seeming them styled with sporty sneakers and eye-catching jewelry to completely transform them from an office-only look to something we could take to the streets. This season we are seeing such an amazing variety, from colorful options, lighter linen fabrics, and my personal favorite: the shorts suit making a new debut.
Here are 3 different casual suiting trends and how to style them, from sporty to sophisticated:
DETAILS: 1. LINEN BLAZER (UNDER $50) | 2. RIBBED TANK (UNDER $20) | 3. SUNGLASSES (ON SALE UNDER $10) | 4. LINEN HAT (ON SALE UNDER $20) | 5. PAVE EARRINGS (UNDER $100) | 6. CROSSBODY (UNDER $100) | 7. LINEN SHORTS (UNDER $50) | 8. SLIDES (UNDER $50)
Nothing says spring/summer ready like linen. I love this linen shorts suit look for an effortless day look. To keep it feeling sophisticated, keep it monochromatic with pretty beiges and nudes. You can also break it up with a bright neon cropped tee (similar here) and bright sneakers for a sporty look. Also love this blazer and paper-bag pant set – so chic and great price points!
DETAILS: 9. OVERSIZED SUNGLASSES (UNDER $50) | 10. WHITE CROPPED TEE (UNDER $20) | 11. ROSE TROUSERS (UNDER $100 – SIMILAR HERE ON SALE) | 12. PEARL HOOPS (ON SALE UNDER $30) | 13. ROSE BLAZER (UNDER $100) | 14. WOVEN BOX BAG | 15. SNEAKERS
The colorful casual suits options right now are endless. Obsessed with this gorgeous rose suit! To bring a more casual vibe, add a cropped ribbed tee (love this one under $20 – need it in every color!) and some spring sneakers. This is a pretty paler pink option and also love this green blazer and shorts set.
DETAILS: 16. VELVET BOW (UNDER $25) | 17. BLACK NAIL POLISH | 18. GIVENCHY TEE | 19. SUNGLASSES | 20. GOLD CHAIN CHOKER (UNDER $100) | 21. TAILORED BLAZER | 22. LEOPARD SANDALS | 23. SATIN-DETAILS TROUSER SHORTS (ON SALE HERE – MORE SIZES HERE) | 24. FAUX LINEN TOTE (ON SALE 20% OFF – COMES IN 4 COLORS)
The shorts suit is a welcome revival from the 90s but if you are new to the shorts suit, start with the basics and go back to black. This blazer and these shorts have the more beautiful satin detailing that you could wear with heels and a white bodysuit to the office or dress it down with a graphic tee and sandals.
