Keep it Real – Gabi Tells it Like it Is

Question: Are shorts appropriate for work?

Answer: You should first consider your environment before pulling the shoot on pants. For those in an ultra conservative office, shorts are sadly a no-go, even if it is blazing hot (at least you will have the icy cold air conditioning to cool you down). If you are in a laid back office, shorts that hit just above the knee are acceptable. I would suggest staying away from denim though, it usually says beach more than client meeting.

A little too casual for work

How to wear shorts to work? Not like this. A little too casual (and way to short) for work.

How to wear shorts for work? More appropriate, but opt for longer shorts for the office. Save the short shorts for your weekend outings.
