16 Shorts You Can Wear To Work Because August Is The Hottest Month EVER

July 25, 2014

Even though you may think summer clothing, like sleeveless dresses, denim shorts and muscle tanks, isn’t important anymore, you’re wrong. August is the HOTTEST month in the year: so go all out with your deodorant.

Dressing for work in the heat can be tricky, but we have the answer: shorts. Yes, you read that right, you can wear shorts to work. A lot of people believe that these bottoms aren’t appropriate for the office, but we say otherwise, especially when the temps are hitting close to or at 90 degrees every day. And since every office has a different dress code, we put together three different ways to wear shorts to work, so take advantage of it! The men in your office have to sweat it out in their suits all day.

1. Long shorts

Think in-between regular and bermudas for this length. Usually, these shorts are made with suit material, so it’s best to wear them with blazers, cardigans, chiffon tops, button downs and heels to complete the style. They are a little more on the expensive side, but you can take this item from day to night no problem. It’s a great investment.

2. Shorts that look like skirts

These shorts basically give you a freebee when it comes to dressing up for work. Since they look like skirts, people will assume you’re wearing one, except you won’t flash people and go all Marylin Monroe when a huge gust of wind surprises you. It’s fun to wear flowy, patterned shorts with a solid top and sandals or oxfords. When wearing plain shorts, either pair with a patterned top or go for a monochrome look with a bold necklace.

3. Structured shorts

Though these shorts can be on the shorter side, make sure they are made out of a good material that is work appropriate, like cotton or leather. Because you are wearing shorter bottoms than most people, be sure to pair them with shoes that will balance out the look like espadrilles. Match these shorts with nice tops and a statement necklace to look professional.

So take a look at this slideshow and buy some workplace-approved shorts to wear.
