Here's another work outfit for you. I was eager to try out the new velvet shorts I scored from the ASOS sale, and decided to try and workwear look with them - I work in a super casual environment, but somehow I still feel a bit odd wearing shorts to the office (even though this is much more formal than most of my colleagues!). Anyhow, the shorts are simply fantastic. I'm a larger size 22 around my hips (sometimes a 24) and these are actually slightly loose on me, making them a much more comfortable fit than other styles I've owned. The velvet is a dark grey which catches the light really nicely, with hugggge pockets (they're the entire length of the shorts!).

Shorts, £9, ASOS Curve sale

  1. I want those velvet shorts now, I didn't know how they'd fit! Hmm.
    Looking good.

  2. i've thought about ordering the velvet shorts many-a-time, but never went for it. i love the texture on those tights.

  3. Thanks all of you! They're awesome, so I'd definitely recommend ordering for any still tempted ;)

  4. Ah, I love the velvet shorts. I wore mine like almost everywhere. I think you pulled the look quit well. As long you're not working in an attorney office, I think: GO!

  5. I was always so uncertain of those shorts but damn, they look amazing on you! You always style things so well, it's a huge inspiration.
