Although it sounds like an oxymoron, shorts can work for the colder months when layered over tights, and the right style and material can also work for a holiday office celebration. Stay away from shorts made of denim and cotton material because those fabrics are too casual for an office environment (even if it’s a party). Instead, opt for materials such as wool, velvet or corduroy. Add flare by choosing a pair with sequin, lace, or crochet detail. Choose tights in the same hue or color family. To complete the put-together party ensemble add pumps or ankle booties.
