How to Wear Shorts in Work All Summer

 Summer is here and the temperatures are rising. But that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice your style or comfort at work. You can still rock shorts in the office, as long as you follow some simple rules and tips. Here are some ways to wear shorts in work all summer and look professional, chic and cool.



Choose the Right Shorts

Not all shorts are created equal. Some are too casual, too short or too tight for the workplace. You want to avoid anything that looks like you're going to the beach, the gym or the club. Instead, opt for shorts that are:

- Made of a structured, breathable and wrinkle-resistant fabric, such as cotton, linen or denim.
- Cut at or slightly above the knee, depending on your height and preference.
- Fitted but not clingy, with enough room to move and sit comfortably.
- Solid-colored or with a subtle print or pattern, such as stripes, checks or florals.
- Appropriate for your dress code and industry. For example, if you work in a creative field, you can experiment with more colors and styles, but if you work in a conservative environment, you may want to stick to neutrals and classic cuts.

Pair Them with the Right Tops

The key to wearing shorts in work is to balance them with the right tops. You don't want to look too casual or too revealing, so avoid anything that is:

- Too tight, too loose or too cropped.
- Too low-cut, too sheer or too strapless.
- Too flashy, too trendy or too graphic.



Instead, choose tops that are:

- Made of a lightweight, breathable and wrinkle-resistant fabric, such as cotton, silk or chiffon.
- Fitted but not clingy, with enough coverage and modesty.
- Solid-colored or with a subtle print or pattern that complements your shorts.
- Appropriate for your dress code and industry. For example, if you work in a casual setting, you can wear a simple tee or tank top, but if you work in a formal setting, you may want to wear a blouse or a shirt.

Accessorize Them with the Right Shoes and Extras

The final touch to wearing shorts in work is to accessorize them with the right shoes and extras. You don't want to look too sporty or too flashy, so avoid anything that is:

- Too casual, such as flip-flops, sneakers or sandals.
- Too high-heeled, such as stilettos, wedges or platforms.
- Too chunky, such as boots, clogs or mules.


Instead, choose shoes that are:

- Made of a durable, comfortable and stylish material, such as leather, suede or canvas.
- Flat or with a low to medium heel, depending on your preference and comfort level.
- Solid-colored or with a subtle print or pattern that matches your outfit.
- Appropriate for your dress code and industry. For example, if you work in a relaxed setting, you can wear flats or loafers, but if you work in a sophisticated setting, you may want to wear pumps or slingbacks.

As for extras, you can add some flair and personality to your look with some:

- Jewelry, such as earrings, necklaces or bracelets.
- Belts, such as leather, fabric or metal ones.
- Bags, such as tote bags, crossbody bags or clutches.
- Hats, such as fedoras, sun hats or berets.



Just make sure they are not too loud, too big or too many.
Wearing shorts in work all summer is possible and easy if you follow these tips. Just remember to choose the right shorts, pair them with the right tops and accessorize them with the right shoes and extras. You'll be ready to beat the heat and impress your boss and colleagues with your style and confidence. Happy summer!
