As much as we love a pantsuit, we don’t love the idea of wearing one in 80-degree weather. A suit’s best virtues—a bit of structure, cozy fabrics, maybe a little slouch—aren’t exactly made for sunshine and humidity, if you’ve been committed to the look during the cold season, a twist in suit wearing style is lurking around.
If a blazer and matching shorts feels a little out-there at first, the combination is unexpectedly practical. It’s a “full look,” but doesn’t sacrifice comfort, and the blazer works as built-in temperature control: Take it off when you start to feel the heat (just wear a camisole or T-shirt underneath!), then throw it on again when you find yourself in overly chilly restaurants or shops.
Add nice pairs of sneakers, to give that business and leisure look.
