6 Pairs of Shorts You Shouldn’t Be Caught Dead in at Work (PHOTOS)

shortsWhen it comes to business casual, it's a definite do for me. First off: who has the budget for a business professional wardrobe? (Be honest, 'cause I sure as hell DON'T.) And secondly, I'm more than happy to be seated in front of my computer all day in an outfit that's comfortable -- pretty sure I work better that way anyway. But there's a way to wear the look well and then there's a way to wear it that just ruins it for the rest of us. Like ... really? Your pajama shirt? To the office? There's nothing more irksome than short shorts, ripped shorts, spandex shorts making their ugly way into the office. Those are mistakes no woman should make.

Not sure about which thigh-baring looks to avoid? May I present you with the 6 worst ways to wear shorts in the office. You can't say I didn't warn you ...

Do you think shorts are appropriate for work?

I don't think any shorts are acceptable wear at work setting unless they are Capri or longer or your job is a gym guru.

Shorts are never appropriate for work unless you work at Forever21 or a bar......and if it looks like your vagina is trying to eat your shorts they are a BAD idea.

Actually, tailored Bermuda shorts (to the knee, not tight) are OK, especially with a matching blazer. They are no shorter than a skirt, just more casual for Friday.
