Suit Blazers paired with shorts are not only sophisticated but sexy as well. This transitional ensemble combines the best of both worlds: masculine inspiration and feminine sass. With that in mind, it's important when wearing such a dominant feature (the blazer) to pair it with feminine details such as a studded top or a ruffled shirt. For the daring, wear underneath the blazer a bandau for a sexy reveal or a satin flowy blouse for a mature chic look. Stay warm on those chilly nights downtown while accentuating your outfit even further with opaque stockings like what Helena is wearing. Create the illusion of non-stopping legs with platforms increasing the gap between the hemline of the short and the top of your pumps! Usually, when someone thinks of suits, basic colors like black and white come to mind. Even though these colors are dynamic for the nightlife; again, and I can't stress this enough, "don't be afraid to throw out the basics" and invest in a gray or navy short suit. Don't dim this dramatic look too much by using dark makeup on the eyes and lips. Stay fresh and light with natural shades of lipstick and highlighting face powder for a natural spotlight glow. Ignite a pop of color by adding it in something simple like a belt, clutch, pumps, or lipcolor (Samaire) to add excitement to an updated traditional ensemble.
