Suits with shorts a new fashion trend?

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- Odd fashion trends are nothing new when seen on a model walking the runway at a New York fashion week show.

But when the styles hit the street, such as when "mustard" was the chosen color of fall 2012, it can turn some heads and raise some eyebrows.

And one trend in men's fashion is doing just that -- suits with shorts.

Perhaps it was when Pharrell Williams wore a tuxedo with shorts at the Oscars in March 2014, or maybe it is a desire by men to have more wardrobe options.

Whatever the reason, short suits have arrived.

According to a Business Insider interview with the creative director from retailer Jay Hilburn, short suits are particularly popular among the younger generation.

So just what makes a suit with  shorts such a desirable outfit?

Perhaps its the ability to show off ones toned legs, as this fitted, mid-thigh black number does.
