Dress shorts are incredibly versatile. They come in countless colours, lengths, and styles. Shorter dress shorts worn with loose, flowing tops and a pair of heels are perfect for a night out. Dress shorts convert into year-round clothing items when worn with a pair of boots and tights underneath. Depending on their length and colour, they may be a perfect way to head to the office in style in the summer. With so many ways to wear dress shorts, they are a necessary addition to every woman's closet.
1 Henbury Chino Shorts

The Henbury chino shorts are perfectly versatile. They feature two slanted front pockets and one back pocket. They reach the top of the knee so they still look modest, even when paired with high heels. They also have a flat front and belt loops. The shorts come in neutral colours so wearers can pair them with patterned or solid tops. The manufacturer designed these shorts out of cotton Teflon twill for stain resistance, so a little coffee spill at the office does not result in a noticeable stain.

2 ASOS Tailored Shorts

ASOS tailored shorts look sleek and elegant and come in many styles and fits. The belted roll hem shorts, for example, are high waisted with a thin belt and pleats. They come in stylish colours like stone, tobacco, peach, and blue. They look great with both patterned and solid tops. These shorts are dressy, but hit mid-thigh, so they may not be appropriate for all office settings. The ASOS city shorts, however, just hit the knee. These shorts are cute and stylish whether heading to the office or to a social occasion. They are also available in plus sizes.
