16 Spring Shorts Perfect For The Office

Reality check: Not everyone can wear shorts to the office. But for those of you that are as lucky as us (fashion, media, tech and PR folks, we’re talking about you here), the idea of ditching your skinny jeans and pants for something a bit more flirty and fun is certainly tempting when spring hits and the temps start to rise.

Given the careful balancing act we all have to walk when it comes to putting our best (career) foot forward, we decided to do a little preemptive shopping to ensure you had the cutest shorts to play with while on the clock. Trust us when we say these lovelies are exactly what you need to dress up a structured blazer, plain white oxford, or even set off some colored tights, wedges and the like.

So take a tour through the slideshow above, review your closet and then feel free to enjoy a little spring awakening. While your legs may be a bit pale right now, don’t let it stop you from ushering in a new office look.
