I Love Bathing Suits, but I'm OBSESSED With This $81 Shorts Suit Set For Summer
Summer fashion generally revolves around cute bathing suits, pretty sundresses, comfy sandals, and fun tops. Tailored anything usually doesn't come to mind when you think of the sunny season, let alone suits (can you say, stuffy?!), but thanks to designers like Gucci, Balenciaga, Boss, Gabriela Hearst, Roksanda, Sies Marjan, Etro, Emporio Armani, Rejina Pyo, and Peter Pilotto (you know, to name a few), colorful suits are one of Summer's biggest trends and the shorts suit trend is the ideal way to rock it in the heat.
I know, I know. Workwear probably isn't your favorite Summer category to shop for, but it's one of the most practical. Despite having far-flung getaways and Summer Fridays on the brain, you're still heading to the office most days. So, to make it more exciting, why not step outside your comfort zone with a fun and fresh workwear trend like a shorts suit? Particularly, this blazer-and-shorts set from the POPSUGAR collection at Kohl's. Fun, yes?!
Now, shorts at the office are, naturally, very tricky. But a tailored pair that's longer in length can definitely be appropriate in many offices. That's why this POPSUGAR set is perfect. Not only is it A) very fun B) very stylish and C) very comfortable, but also the shorts are sophisticated thanks to the high-rise paperbag waist and long inseam. Styled with the coordinating blazer and a simple tee for easy chic, it's the perfect Summer office outfit when you want to shake things up. If shorts are a hard "no" for you at work, this look is great for a cocktail party or dinner when you want something different from a dress, skirt, or jeans.
At just $81 for both pieces, this shorts suit set is the easiest way to try two trends at once — Summer tailoring and yellow (which is the season's top color trend) — without feeling like you're over-investing.
Ahead, see how I styled it for a day at the office and shop every piece from my outfit, including my on-trend Summer accessories.
