City Shorts: Only at Vogue HQ?

Fashion magazines always suggest 'city shorts' as a viable workwear option. Maybe if you work in London, at a fashion magazine, but in the Cotswolds, at an environmental firm? Nat so mach.

I bought some smart linen shorts during my Matalan spree at the weekend (the dresses fit me! Generous bust but slim hips! REVELATION!) but I think they're more suited to a night out than a day at work. I'd pair them with heels and a long-sleeved blouse, tucked in loosely.

They cost £14, are made from a linen/viscose mix and have a zip at the side to undo them; aka no faffing about with all those buttons.


  1. I just can't get my head around tights underneath shorts, so it's a no from me.

  2. When I see a girl in city shorts I usually think it's very stylish but then, as a woman I know what tights under shorts feels like and a large dose of 'oh you poor dear, you must be so uncomfortable' takes over from admiring the look!

  3. Who said anything about tights ladies? This is a summer look for me, which means (fake)tanned legs and some Origins Ginger Glimmer Whipped Body Cream and I'm good to go! Definitely a bit slutty for the office!

  4. God, now I feel old. I would never go to the office without hosiery!

  5. Oh, I wouldn't wear that look to work as I said!

  6. i definitely wouldn't wearshorts to work without hosiery (I work in a school !)--- I am happy to be called old for it .


I love reading your comments!
