As you're aware, we're all spending more time indoors. In the meantime, temperatures outside continue to rise, making shorts now an absolute necessity. Aside from the obvious heat-bearing benefits of shorts, the beauty of working from home, and the subsequent Zoom meetings, is that you're only top-half-on-show. No matter how formal you need to be for work, it doesn't really matter what's beneath.

Now that isn't to say we're about to advise you to pair shorts with a blazer, shirt, and tie, though. Comfort is in order, too, which means tees, long-sleeves, and sweatshirts are all smart choices for your top half when working (and relaxing, exercising, eating, and socialising) from home.

The good news is — when shopping for shorts, you really don't need to break the bank. At affordable destinations, including Urban Outfitters, there are plenty of them on offer for way under the $100 mark. We've selected some current favorites, in a range of colors and styles, as well as the home-ready pieces we recommend pairing them with.

Scroll on for our shorts shopping tips and what to wear them with.
