Lately, I often get the question “how do you wear shorts to work?”. With the sunny weather, this is an understandable question. You know I have a deep love for suits, so I am very excited about the SS2020 trend, short suits.

Short suits to work

When you work in a creative or business casual work environment, short suits are your outfit to go. Besides they are a trend this summer, they are a great way to handle the high temperatures while maintaining a professional appearance.

What to look for when buying a short suit

I already mentioned it in between the lines. Not every workplace allows shorts to work. Be sure the dress code or dress policies of your company accept wearing shorts to work.When you are not sure, I wrote a blogpost with some guidelines to determine the dress code of your company.

The next thing you need to take care of is the length of your short. In general, the ideal length of shorts, dresses or skirts for work is between just above or just under the knee. A short suit with a bermuda short is the safest option – and bermuda shorts are also a trend this summer. Double win!

Of course, it depends on the work environment, but in general, I also suggest to stick with neutral colours to maintain the balance between trendy and work proof.

The last thing to mention, short suits make it very easy to transition your work outfit into a weekend outfit.
