I wore this outfit to the Refinery29 launch party last week and am pretty sure I need more dress shorts STAT.
Until now, I had stayed away from them for really dumb reasons. But after stumbling upon these a couple weeks ago, I've become a believer. I'm also convinced that, when paired with the right pieces, dress shorts can really be such a versatile wardrobe staple. Sometimes you just get sick of wearing skirts. Or at least I do. And these will definitely be a welcome reprieve for when I'm feeling like I want to change it up.
I think my one rule when it comes to these, though, is that tights are a must. At least if you plan on rocking them in an office environment. Where I work doesn't require suits on a daily basis, but you're still expected to dress respectably and, ya know, not in sweatpants or something. I think I'd feel a bit too casual without tights. Plus, it's getting cold out, so bare legs aren't an option for me.
What are your thoughts on dress shorts?
Here's to a great week, lovely readers!
