With an abbreviated cut, bold colors, and tons of pattern play, short suits are kind of like the traditional suit's cooler little sister. Sure, they might take cues from the Wall Street staple, but THIS version has way more edge...and Solange, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Ashley Madekwe are here to prove it. We all know that Solange is pretty much the QUEEN of suits (bowing down), what with her ridiculously awesome printed numbers in her new "Losing You" vid and the mismatched separates she shows off for Madewell. But this week, the singer traded her signature prints for a solid pink ensemble by Twenty8Twelve, which she wore over a checked Preen blouse. We're digging the quirky accessories vibe here, too, with her black and white Nicholas Kirkwood sandals and the Union Jack Charlotte Olympia Clutch. You know the term "transitional pieces"? Well, considering we're currently dealing with 80-degree October weather, the short suit just might be our Indian Summer secret weapon.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
