After several seasons, the short suit has proven itself a long-lasting trend. Myriad prints and styles are available, and we just can’t get enough of these chic two-piece ensembles. Depending on your office dress code, short suits with a longer hemline may be appropriate for work — but keep things classy with a blouse, heels and structured bag. Rock this trend on the weekend, too, by pairing your suit with more casual details!
