When you come across a designer with a background in civil engineering you know you’re about to wear something amazing. That was exactly the case when I tried on this stunning two-piece shorts suit by Moe Oslo.
I have a love / hate relationship with shorts, or more to the point with my legs. I think we fell out when I started obsessing over the condition of my pins and I decided that I just didn’t have the legs for shorts. What does that even mean? Classic (pathetic) female negative self-talk, so destructive. Consequently shorts haven’t featured in my wardrobe for years until this summer when I snapped out of my state of shorts self-pity.
This navy set by Moe Oslo is typical of the brand’s construction influenced design. The designer at the helm of the Amsterdam based clothing line, Henriette Moe Winsnes brings an engineering perspective to all her clothing. Like an impressive piece of flat-pack each garment has folds and cleverly positioned creases to ensure it sits perfectly. This is intelligent style.
The long shorts and box top give off an androgynous vibe but are entirely feminine, especially when paired with minimal heels like this pair by The Mode Collective. Matchy-matchy it may be, but it’s also elegant and confident. It’s the alternative date night look and office suit for work. For work swap the sandals for pumps or chunky brogues.
What do you think? Can I tempt you to swap your office skirts and trousers for shorts?
