I recently had a query about the suitability of wearing shorts to work. I personally think they're ideal, it's all in the way you style them. And of course there are shorts and shorts - it's the tailored look you're after.
Some women can't bring themselves to wear shorts to work, but let's face it, many of them are the same length as a skirt so no different really.
Let's take a look at what's out there
These shorts from Jacqui E are really smart - you can dress them up by wearing a blazer. I'm particularly fond of this cropped blazer from Jacqui E which sits well on the body. It looks amazing teamed with the likes of this flowing top from EziBuy and complete the look with a pendant necklace.
