Wearing shorts to work can be tricky but these high waisted bermuda shorts from ASOS are surprisingly work appropriate for summer if you style them the right way. Penny Chic’s Brittnie Adams is wearing a chambray shirt tucked in with a belt which shows off the waist and almost comes across like an A-line skirt. For my outfit, I tried to make the shorts look almost like a pant suit by adding the blazer and keeping the blouse untucked. Of course, I didn’t forget the statement necklace for a little hint of edge!

You may have already seen both of these looks from my Summer Staples series (here and here) on!

Would you wear either of these looks to work?

  1. I don’t know if I could get away with shorts at the office, but these looks are even cute for brunch with friends, family parties, etc. Thanks for choosing shorts that look good on real women :)

  2. I love the shorts with the white blazer however not a fan with the chambray shirt. It feels alittle too matronly esp. with the pearl necklace.

    • Fair point…When I looked back at it I felt like the pearls and the belt were probably overkill.
