Shorts: Length

If planning to wear shorts in a business capacity keep the following in mind.

  1. Dress shorts should ideally sit 1-3 in (3-8 cm) above the knee. Any shorter and they are becoming more casual and sporting
  2. Shorts worn below the knee can make you look like a schoolboy unless you are wearing a fashion-forward outfit. Or you are living in the tropics, at which point, you do not want your shorts lower than your calves.
  3. Dress shorts are best worn with an espadrille or a loafer if wearing no socks, or a knee-high sock with white lace-up sports shoe.
