Recently we’ve been seeing boardroom-ready suits with a twist: they’re done with shorts rather than skirts or trousers. Fergie, Beyonce, and Rebecca Hall have all been photographed in different versions of this look. It’s safe to say that this look won’t fly in most non-fashion related workplaces, but how about after hours or for social occasions?
Fergie takes the look in a funky direction, choosing a bright print and pairing it with boots. Beyonce goes for pure glamour, choosing black sequins with a super-plunging neckline and long string of pearls. Rebecca Hall takes the look in a more schoolgirl direction, choosing classic grey flannel, black tights, and boots.
There’s no question that it’s a look that takes some courage to wear. I doubt I would have the moxie it would take, but you never know what direction fashion will take a person. What about you? Where would you wear this look? How would you style it?
