THE SHORT SUIT

I've been tempted for a few months now, but I'm still not sure what to think of this: The short suit (=suit, but with shorts).
Ever since I first saw the images of this one by Acne a couple of months ago, I felt like this could actually work.
It's casual AND dressy at the same time, good for those occasions where you don't want to overdress yet you wouldn't want to show up in your jeans when everyone's wearing a cocktail dress either, right?



ASOS does a nice (& cheaper!) version of the Acne one... Not bad, not bad at all!



But then....! Let's take it up a notch.
What if we take this idea of a short suit, but do it with a print? Not so casual friday after all eh? Right.
Is print just tooo much for this? Is it one of those situations where you can wear one of these items, just not the 2 of them together? Topshop doesn't seem to think so... They made this great flower-printed number. It almost looks like a playsuit! (and yes I know, I know, that's not actually a jacket therefore not really a 'suit', but stay with me on this one)



I also came across this wonderful printed one by Belgian designer Cathy Pill (known for her incredible prints)...




What to think of it? Well, to be honest: I DON'T KNOW!
So, get on with the opinions! Yay or nay? Prints or "You weren't seriously considering wearing a printed short suit, were you?" Any favourites too?


And for those of you who've made up their minds and are willing to go for it, here are the details:
Acne: Top - Bottom
Asos: Top - Bottom
Topshop: Top (seems to be sold out by now! eeep! I'd check on the 'back in stock' category once in a while though...) - Bottom
Cathy Pill: Top - Bottom

De prints zijn heel mooi, de shorts ook, maar ik zou het nooit echt als chique outfit durven dragen!
