Shorts to the Office

As a lady you get to have a little more flexibility in the office compared to men.

As we wear skirts and dresses to the office; it isn’t abnormal to show a little leg at the office. Thus shorts are no different.

But be sure to wear the correct style!

The correct style is:

1. Material

Just as a jean pants or skirt is unacceptable, so are jean shorts.

Go for a Trouser or Bermuda short material

Example: H&M Bermuda Short

2. Length

The short should fall between 3/4 to knee length

knee length short 34 knee short

Although a mid-thigh short can look incredibly chic.

Not for the office, my friends. Not for the office.

Save that outfit for an out of office chic look.

Here are some examples of how I styled shorts for the office to get your creative-styling-juices flowing!

Although I like to offset the skin showing on my legs with a long sleeve.

On one of Toronto’s hottest days I also styled shorts without sleeves.

If you still feel uneasy wearing shorts to work.

It is a great idea for those casual fridays- mix it up!

Who says you have to sweat those summer days?

Be the epitome of cool success in a chic short outfit.
