In case you missed it, shorts suits are (still) having a moment. As seen on the spring summer 2020 runways, shorts add a chic boyish energy to the modern business-ready trend, and with Hong Kong’s temperature on the rise, there’s no better way to stay cool in tailoring right now. From modest cuts that fall past the knee, to shorter all-in-one looks, short suits are the unconventional sartorial choice that is as appropriate for the office as it is an easy evening ensemble. Ahead, we pulled together 5 of our favourite shorts suits to dress up in now.
