Shorts are so wonderful in warm weather but will not work in every office environment. Industries like finance (banking) and law usually don’t lend themselves to wearing shorts as business attire. However some businesses are smaller and you may be able to get away with shorts in your office. Also if you are in a creative field, advertising or technology, you might be able to pull it off. Some businesses on the West Coast are more casual than East Coast office venues and may permit shorts. If you think you can wear shorts to your workplace be sure they are made from a quality fabric, are longer (at least to your knee) and not too tight. Dark color shorts and striped fabrics are more business like than pastel colors. Always wear with a jacket such as a blazer to look more professional. Think common sense and good taste when deciding whether to wear shorts to the office.
Working Wardrobe Essential
A blazer is a working wardrobe essential. A quality blazer is an investment. It is a versatile wardrobe staple that will be good for decades and never be out of fashion. No career girl can be without this power cover up. Blazers and jackets give any outfit a more polished and /or professional look. Blazers no matter the style; oversized (mannish), structured or sharp can add a stylish edge to any classic or trendy outfit.
Power Work Clothes
Tailored style clothing that flatters your figure type is the way to go. Solid colors that look good with your skintone and prints are good as long as the styles you wear are simple. For example Marissa Meyer, CEO, of Yahoo has been seen wearing simple print dresses that fall around her knees. Take cues from successful women in positions of power and your work environment. A colorful or print blouse worn with a tailored suit also looks great.
