Even though we're only a few days into March, we've already compiled a mile-long list of spring buys we're anxiously waiting to scoop up. And, right now, a roster of new work outfits is dominating our shopping carts. Sure, we've got plenty of trusty, throw-on-and-go dresses and lightweight pantsuits in the mix, but we're also craving those trendy resort styles that'll seriously impress our coworkers. Take 3.1 Phillip Lim's bermuda-shorts outfit: It's sleek, polished, and basically the encapsulation of how we want to dress, like, all the time.
For naysayers who don't think shorts fit in at the office, allow these powder-blue, silk-organza bermudas to change your perspective. Falling slightly above our knee, they're comparable in length to our HR-approved skirts, but the right fabrics keep them from veering into too-casual territory. Plus, styled with a tailored, double-breasted blazer and espadrille loafers, this getup looks and feels so put-together. And, well, that's basically all the justification our wallet needs. Ring 'em up!
