Workwear: Shorts for the Office
It’s been crazy hot out. It’s the kind of hot here in Philly that makes every movement feel in slow motion. Maybe it’s just me, but it’s hard to operate at full steam when you’re covered in sweat. Skip the maxi shirt and show some skin.
1. High-Waist & Highly Productive
The high-waist cut is great for tucking in a blouse and feels dressed up thanks to the pleating, cuffs, and belt loops.
ASOS High Waisted Shorts with Notch Detail, $33.94 at Asos.
2. Linen Lifestyle
Comfy, breathable , not too tight or too constricting… and they come in four colors – white, black, dark chambray, and washed flax (an oatmeal hue).
3. Pleated Prints
This is one short you won’t have to worry about your coworker wearing. These take some confidence, but are still modest in that you’re butt in covered and you’re keeping cool. Save the mesh top for the club and only dare to wear if you’re in a creative field.
WAYF Pleated Print Shorts,
$48 $28.80 at Nordstrom.
4. Appropriate Animal Print
The structured fit and small print tones down this wild trend, making it fashion forward without looking overdone.
Tommy Hilfiger Short, Animal-Print Cuffed,
$59.50 $24.95 at Macy’s.
5. Cargo at the Cubicle
This cargo works because it’s got clean lines. Skip those old cargo shorts from American Eagle for work and look for something that feels more put together. Did I mention chartreuse is one of my favorite colors? It will compliment your faux glow for sure.
Liz Claiborne Twill Cargo Shorts,
$27 $19.99 at JCPenney.
