Fed up of wearing dresses? If you are, look to Holly Willoughby and Amanda Holden, who have made a case for soft tailoring in the form of short suits this summer. 

The This Morning co-host and Britain's Got Talent judge have braved the office in the UK's heatwave wearing tailored shorts and a matching blazer, a trend we are very much on board with. 

Just last week Holly, 40, presented the ITV day time show wearing a Sandro two piece in a soft pastel mint green, and days later Amanda, 50, opted for a soft yellow set from Reiss to host Heart Breakfast Radio.

Holly's co-ord is currently on sale at Sandro. The Shorts with Wide Belt have been reduced from £179 to £125.30, while the Tailored Crepe Jacket has been slashed from £329 down to £230.30.

While Amanda completed her look with a white cami vest top, matching heels, sunglasses and a bag, Holden opted for a crisp white shirt and nude heels. 

Amanda's exact suit can be bought as separates; the MYAH Wool Blend Slim Fit Blazer, which costs £235, and the MYAH Wool Blend Pleat Front Shorts that retail for £120.

You can pair the two piece sets with trainers or flat shoes, depending on your style preference, and wear it as a full co-ord or separates, whether it is just the tailored shorts with a slogan t-shirt, or the blazer - the options are endless. 

For those who are looking to upgrade their summer wardrobe, a pair of smart tailored longer shorts are a must. Not only are they office-appropriate, they're also perfect for brunch with the girls, a date night, a shopping spree, and plenty more occasions. 

We've found the amazing, affordable alternatives to see you through this season.
