super trends the nyfw edition: suit up...

By Roberta Correia · September 22, 2010

Spring 2011 is going to be the season of Barney Stinson! Ok, maybe it's more like Amanda Woodward. If Amanda were still running things at D&D Advertising today, we can bet that she would no longer be hiking up her skirts in her micro mini skirt suits - she'd be all about the power suit. Think Bianca Jagger circa Studio 54 - Spring 2011 is all about the wide legged, boyfriend blazered classic power suit. A bit of 40s Marlene Dietrich mixed in with that 70s disco glam (after all lots of these came down the runway shirtless) we love so much. Of course SS2011 was predominantly colorless, so obv lots of these guys are in their purest form of white. Just like Bianca.

Now, not all power suits are created equal, so some of you are going to be hitting the office wearing shorts next spring. As if we weren't thrilled enough with the ubiquitous party shorts (in all things velvet, suede, leather and denim) the newest short craze comes in the form of suits. Not talking those bermuda short suits that were popular a few years back - straight up short shorts (just like the Nair commercial), some of them even bootie shorts (ie bloomers) paired with very classic shaped jackets, and yes lots of those came in white too.

I can get on board with a sex kitten borrowed from the boys power pantsuit (I repeat, Amanda would be way proud), but shorts don't really scream office to me.

What do you guys think about the short suit?
