Spring/Summer ’13 Fashion Trend: Suit Up…In City Shorts

April 16, 2013 • Fashion Blog, Trends

Halleluiah! For those of us who still have legs and know how to use them, consider the city short this spring/summer. You are too old to show your butt cheeks (nor should you, ever) and you aren’t quite old enough to wear clam diggers (nor should you, ever). City shorts, then, are your answer as they fall somewhere in-between. They tend to have a 3-4″ inseems and are a little dressier than your typical short. In fact, they look best when paired with a jacket and might possibly be appropriate to wear to work…depending on your job. Who ever would have thought you might want to wear a suit outside of the office? However, when you pair a great printed city short with a blazer or a full-on city short suit (matching shorts and jacket) you might find you want to wear it everywhere! Like on a date with your husband, brunch with your besties or even a garden party! They look best with some sort of heel, besides you want your legs to look a mile long, don’t you? So suit up!
