Kate Winslet Rocks a 'Shorts Suit': Will You Wear One This Fall?

Kate WinsletKate Winslet generally has a great sense of style -- and her recent appearance at the Venice Film Festival was no exception.

While promoting her much-talked-about film, Carnage, she wore one of fall's hottest looks -- a shorts suit.

But while she looked fantastic (as usual), I'm a little leery about trying to pull off this look myself this season.

Because while Kate can pull off a pair of shorts, even she probably would have looked better in a dress.

And what does that say about the rest of us mere mortals?

What do you think of this look?

Will you wear it this fall?


ExpressExpress is making an affordable version of the look -- and I have to admit, I love the way this model looks in these neutral shorts and matching jacket.


Julianne MooreAnd I can't forget how good Julianne Moore looked in this shorts suit in Talbots' spring/summer ads ...

I'm also thinking I'd add tights, which are also big this season -- particularly because in fall and winter, I do not want to be showing off my pale white legs!


BloomingdalesHere's Bloomingdales' interpretation of the look with opaque black tights and black booties. Much better, don't you think? (But a skirt would still look cuter...)

Now that I think of it, I'm actually terrified of seeing this look play out in real life this fall and winter. Most women I know would look sort of um, ridiculous in dress shorts, with or without tights.

What do you think of this trend? Will you wear it?

Now that I think about it, I think I'm personally just going to stick with a cute black skirt ...
