Do you think it is acceptable to wear dress shorts to work?

i think it depends on the job, but my rule of thumb is that if i have to ask myself if it's acceptable or not, it's probably a sign that i shouldn't wear it. :)

I'm with Allison on this one. I'm also very sensitive to cold temps/AC, so shorts would not be great for an office in the hot hot hot summer

I'm not a fan of shorts for office jobs no matter how casual the dress code. However, if you're working outside, with children, or in extremely hot temps with no ac go for it.

Agreed! Not sure where all these girls with short suits are going or coming from.

As much as I would love to wear shorts into an office, I'm not sure if it's considered to be appropriate. I did see one girl wear some long yet professional looking shorts last year at my old internship and they were cute!

I think it depends on what type of job, but in a professional office I don't think it's appropriate. Other then that go for it what ever makes you feel comfortable.

@meganwinifred: I think it is ok to wear shorts to work! Just make sure they are tailored and on the longer side:) I love Becky's examples!

@meganwinifred: I think it is ok to wear shorts to work, some shorts can look just as smart or smarter than a short skirt, and not so much risk of showing your panties underneath! But I would say always wear them with tights (I think you call it pantyhose in the US?) to look more professional. Good examples of smart shorts for work that Becky has posted.
