This style is the professional cousin of matching tops and bottoms. Tons celebrities have been spotted making summerwear classy in shorts suits, and you can too!
Style: Black and White Print.
This style can range from classic houndstooth or herringbone to polkadots and more graphic prints. It's a little bit classic and a little bit funky, but will look good with black or white tops, or a pop of color. Get the look here.
Style: Colorful Printed.
