From the office to summer weddings, the short suit is going to be one of the most hard working pieces in your wardrobe this season. Here are 13 we love…

We’ll let you into a little fashion secret here… a suit is your wardrobe’s secret weapon. Not only does it look polished and like you’ve made an effort, it’s inherently cool with that whiff of nonchalance about it. But here’s the best bit, suits are actually so easy to wear. You can literally throw them on with a white tee and sneakers and bam! instant style points. Plus, wear the piece in silo with your favourite white shirt or denim and you’ve got even more outfit choices.

This season, the look is slouchy, oversized and undone – we like to call them dad suits because they look a little like you, well, borrowed them from your dad. And this relaxed mood plays particularly well to the summer suit iteration – the short suit. There are myriad options to choose from on the high street or if you’re after more of an investment piece. Case in point, Joseph’s powdery pastel blue duo. The tailored shorts have a slight A-line silhouette, skimming the knee and making them both super flattering and office-appropriate.

For something a little more statement, don’t underestimate the power of a pink suit. Sandro’s cerise number will put some colour into an otherwise drab working wardrobe, whilst River Island’s pearlescent satin suit is giving us Barbie vibes in a good way.

Zara leads the way when it comes to tailoring at reasonable price points. We love the cut of their blazers and this loose-fitting fluid linen suit is the perfect piece to slip into this summer, whether paired with a shirt and chunky loafers for the office, or a ribbed vest and sandals at the weekend.

River Island's pearlescent pink satin suit is giving us Barbie vibes in a good way. Pair with pink accessories and a simple white tee like Gemma from This Is Mothership. Perfect for a summer city wedding.
