NYFW 2013 Spring Trends to Try: Short Suits
ASOS Shorts & Blazer in Crochet Lace
Delicate crochet lace makes this short suit a trendy favorite. Wear them together with a white silk tank and sandals for a monochrome look, or have fun adding pops of color with different tops. The high-waisted crochet shorts can be your summer version of a white jean—dress them up and down with everything from chambray shirts to graphic tees.

Niche Belted Shorts & Jacket with Flower Embroidery
Don't let the words "flower embroidery" deter you from buying this dainty duo. This whimsical navy short suit is as artistic as it is cute. With a paper bag waist and flared shape, these high-waisted shorts are perfect for spring. The double-breasted jacket with scalloped lapels makes it look more high-end. Wear it to brunch on a warm summer morning or pair the jacket with white jeans for everyday wear.

Z-Spoke Jacquard Short & Banana Republic Sleeveless Blazer
These polka dot jacquard shorts will lend themselves well to multiple short suit combos. Pair them with a black blazer for a chic work outfit, a hot pink blazer for a more fashionable look, or a sleeveless white blazer for a cool summer outing. And the sleeveless blazer is just as versatile. Throw it over a bright, solid-color blouse for an instant makeshift contrasting-sleeves top.

ASOS Premium Shorts & Oversized Blazer in Crepe
An oversized blazer and a pair of longer shorts make for a trendy, yet work appropriate, suit. The soft blush color will work with a black or white blouse for a simple look or with a geometric patterned top if you want to take it a step further. Add a skinny belt and pumps to finish the outfit. The open front blazer will also work with a pleated skirt or dressed down with a pair of jeans.
