Seersucker on Stripe

July 29, 2014

A few friends and I had the "are shorts work appropriate" discussion recently; the conclusion drawn was: if your job allows it. Granted I don't know anyone who has ever been dismissed because of a dress code violation, some urban myth had it that a poor soul took the advice of a fashion dos-and-don'ts at face value and paid dearly for it.

I think a good rule of thumb for any question that leads with "Do you think I should..." is: if you have to ask, you probably shouldn't.

Having said that, if your job allows it, shorts can add much-needed variety to summer work wardrobes. I almost always wear shorts with a button down and a blazer to offset their casualness.
Until midnight tonight, take 40% off at Banana Republic and the Gap with code BIGTIME. Some picks:

Banana Republic: Navy Lightweight Wool V-Neck Sheath, Heritage Cropped Trench, , Ponte Cross-Back Fit-and-Flare Dress, Roland Mouret Collection Strappy Sheath, Oxford Shirtdress, Gemma Wrap Dress, and Metallic-Trim Parisian Jacket.

The Gap: Stripe Knit Pencil Skirt, Sunkissed Scallop-Hem Shorts, 1969 Western Denim Shirtdress (ordered; despite lukewarm reviews), Split-neck Baseball Tee, and Rugby Fit & Flare Dress.

Happy shopping!

  1. It's totally the season for stripes! I bought my first seersucker blazer this summer from Banana Republic (it looks very similar to yours!) and have been wearing a lot more than I thought now! It goes well with so many different colors of dresses, skirts or just ankle pants. And the best part is, you can dress it up for work, or dress down just like you! Unfortunately my office is not casual enough to allow me to wear shorts at work, but sometimes I do wear that for weekends! :)
