How do they define their dress code? I say if it's business casual/smart casual, then go for it. Just dress it up with the right shoes and top.

They sound very cute

I think a fitted/slighty cropped jacket or cardigan over a camisole would balance the longish length of them perfectly and be appropiate for the office.

I would personally avoid wearing them with thong sandals- I think it would make them look way too casual.

I'd go with mules- maybe with a kitten heel if you can't "do' flats?

Or loafers- but I may be biased, b/c I am a loafer fanatic and would wear them with just abt anything

They sound great! Something different for a change... tweed jackets have been ruined this season.. poor Chanel.

I love the idea of tweed shorts. It is entirely too hot to wear them here, but I'm sure you'll look fabulous. I am picturing them with Mui Mui loafers.

junya watanabe white dress detail...

the dress has a large zipped pocket/bag on each hip...with straps criss-crossing across the chest...

would you put stuff in the pockets...real stuff or fake stuffing...?

it's like having two built in messenger bags...

what would you do?...

I'd go for coloured flats and some cheerful jewelry, maybe cluster earrings.
In cyan perhaps...
Sort of brighten it up and take away the avant-gardeish edge.

Or, for a more grown-up look, these flats.

I think that necklace is by AMY CHAN (?). I think it's gorgeous as well, but I think the dress has too high of a neckline to wear a necklace with it. I would go with a chunky bracelet and colored flats, and maybe colorful earrings as well. I wouldn't stuff the pockets on purpose; I would just not carry a purse that day and put whatever I need in the pockets (like maybe a small coinpurse or something, nothing too heavy).
