Short Suits-Lovely Summer Fashion on Poirot

I recently discovered the long running (1989-2013) Brittish TV Show Poirot based on the famous Agatha Christie novels.   I'm still working my way through the entire series, but I'm already a major fan.  The show is set in the 1930s and the attention to detail in the sets and costumes is amazing.   I am often so distracted by the gorgeous outfits that I loose track of the mystery.   Poirot seems to be eternally on vacation at country houses and resorts and some of the best outfits are the summery dresses and short suit sets.   I particularly love these summery outfits from Triangle At Rhodes, Season 1 and The Case of the Missing Will, Season 5. I took the pictures with my phone so they are not of very good quality, my apologies.

 I love how her dress, belt, gloves and hat are so coordinated.  The gloves in particular are gorgeous.

Its so cute how the madras hat and top match.

I really like the red buttons and stitching on this cream short suit, so stylish!
These two may be the best dressed couple in all the Poirot episodes I've seen, quite an achievement.

I'm already day dreaming about having some Poirot inspired short suits copies for myself for next summer.


  1. I love those buttons too! I haven't heard of the show, I will have to look into it.

  2. Delightful post! Poirot is such a fun show! My mom is a huge fan, and I first started watching it through her, quickly becoming an admirer of this charming British series myself, too.

    *PS* A few years back these was a fabulously funny British comedy sketch show called That Mitchell and Webb Look which spoofed Poirot in one of their sketches. I personally think it's hilarious (Tony and I still quote a couple lines from it periodically years later). Here's the clip (I hope you get a chuckle out of it as well):

  3. Perfect series for you to drool over. I'm currently re-watching Miss Marple on NetFlix. Love Agatha Christie.

  4. We love Poirot too. We have some many period dramas over here we are spoilt. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly
