My Go-To Oufit: Shorts Suit

Every 6 months or so I develop a new “uniform”: one season it was wax-coated denim, one season was leggings and Hanes tanks, and this season it’s shorts.

When I connect with a look or trend, I can’t get it out of my system.  The same 5 pieces will hang in the front of my closet for months until I find my next obsession and move on.  I don’t see my obsession with shorts ending anytime soon!

Most days I’ll wear my shorts with tights and boots for work, but any combo makes the cut: denim with high tops, silk shorts with a blazer, tailored with a loose knit sweater.  Jessica (our social media coordinator) was needing a little pick-me-up from her all black and gray outfit the other day, so I suggested my favorite item of the season of course- printed shorts!  All she had to do was swap out her gray pants for bright shorts, and her look was transformed.

The next time you’re in an office style rut, remember this trick!  Keep you button down and blazer, but ditch the trousers.  Add shorts (and tights if you’re in a conservative office) and maybe a statement necklace- voila!  Say hello to your new summer uniform.

After!
