Move over, pantsuit, there's a new suit in town. The shorts suit has quickly become one of our Summer go-tos, thanks to runways like Prabal Gurung, Jenni Kayne, and J.Crew. At first, the thought of a matching printed shorts and jacket combo might sound tricky, which is why we're styling the shorts suit three totally different ways in today's installment of Currently Trending. And after this, when it comes to wearing a shorts suit this season, think "yes you can!"
Spring's power suit is the stem-baring kind — that was evident on the runways, where catwalks from Jil Sander to Tory Burch and Milly showed off shorts with a more sophisticated side. Now, Gwyneth Paltrow is giving us a real-life take in a tailored blazer and shorts set by Rag & Bone. The actress-turned-cookbook-author headed to Good Morning America to chat about her new book, It's All Good, showing off what is quickly becoming one of our favorite looks of the season. Thanks to a blazer and classic white button-up, Gwyneth's look has all the polish of any traditional suiting, while shorts lend a sportier and more casual feel that's perfect for Spring and Summer events. The only other requirement for pulling off the shorts suit à la Gwyneth? A pair of leg-lengthening nude ankle-strap heels.
