A suit equals a no-worries way to show up polished at any fête...unless the following factors come in to play: a) it's outdoors, b) it's scorching summertime, c) there's a dress code, and d) there's no way you'll deign to arrive looking less than stellar. Yikes. How is a girl supposed to compromise? MJ Benitez has your answer—the bermuda shorts suit.
It's the perfect fusion between trend and timeless, we think. Bermudas are, after all, huge right now, eagerly filling the knee-grazing hole left in your heart by its predecessor, culottes. MJ styled her cute ruched n' ribboned set by Vania Romoff with an adorable beret, effectively giving us pleasant Moonrise Kingdom pangs. It's like Suzy Bishop grew up and traded her brogues for Acne Studios pumps and her pastel pinks for forest greens.
