Styling a Suit with Shorts

Women have been wearing suits since Coco Chanel first launched a fabulous fur-trimmed jacket and matching skirt in 1914. The design encapsulated the start of a new era of androgyny in women’s fashion, coinciding with a crucial time for women’s history. As activists fought desperately to earn their rights to vote, fashion took a sharp turn away from the restrictive, impractical styles that had so long reigned supreme. Suddenly, nothing was off-limits, including suits and other men’s wardrobe staples.

How to Wear a Suit with Shorts

A short suit can work for several occasions, depending on how you style it. A short suit with a silk blouse could work perfectly for a hot summer’s day at the office. Meanwhile, a loose-fitting style is ideal for more casual occasions, such as weekend brunch with friends. Try it with a plain white tee, sneakers, and sunglasses for a fashion-forward look that doesn’t lose that low-key appeal.

Finally, for an evening out on the town, amp up the sex appeal by forgoing anything underneath, allowing the long collar to function as a plunging V-neck instead. Pair with barely-there heels and glitzy earrings and be prepared to turn heads.

OMARU Short Suits for Women

A lesson in informal tailoring, OMARU’s suits are known for their signature loose-fit and bold gender-neutral appeal. Part of the OMARU collection known as Free, these two latest suits feature a slightly more feminine feel, still with the same relaxed fit and commitment to high-quality craftsmanship.

These short suits were inspired by the designer’s sister and niece, Mariama and Alina. Welcoming, warm, and kind, these two women are known for their ability to embrace others and the beauty of the world around them. The suits are a reflection of this inclusive attitude, designed specifically to allow all women to feel beautiful and free. They are both made from soft dyed denim, which is structured enough to appear smart when necessary, but supple enough to offer a relaxed and comfortable fit.

Mariama Mandarin Dream Suit

Zesty and refreshing, this stunning suit is both vibrant and sexy, expertly finished with a large, peaked lapel and pockets. The high-waisted shorts offer a thick waistband to flatter your figure, with a wide leg opening that is both classy and comfortable. Wear them with matching orange lipstick and heels for a juicy evening ensemble.
