Winter Shorts



1. Forever 21 Cuffed Houndstooth Shorts $19.80
2. Juicy Couture Riding Twill Herringbone Shorts $128
3. Forever 21 Sailor Shorts $17.80
4. American Eagle Sequin Party Shorts $49.50
5. Madewell Silk Tulip Shorts $88
6. Alexa Chung for Madewell Billie Velvet Shorts $88

It's fun to see that shorts are not just for summertime anymore. They're now worn year round with bare legs during warmer months and with tights and booties/boots or even pumps during the winter. It's one of the easiest/most budget friendly ways to transition your summer wardrobe into Fall. And even though there are very "winter" versions (think wool, twill, and high waists), this also look amazing with the basic denim cutoffs. I usually pair mine with a thin sweater or slouchy tee and warm jacket, but blouses and flannels also look great. Are you wearing shorts this Fall/Winter?

I love numbers 4 and 6, but I think shorts season is over here in Canada as it's supposed to snow this weekend! I was hoping for a few more weeks of mild weather but I don't think it's going to happen. I'll just have to live vicariously through other bloggers!

I am a huge fan of this post, since over the summer I got very into wearing shorts again! (not the denim kind!)
I really like the Forever 21 herringbone pair, they'd look fab with tights!

I love this post...I have worn longer dressy winter shorts in the winter with tights and boots but not shorter ones. Great look!

I enjoyed reading through your blog...see you soon!

I love the shorts + tights combo. The Madewell velvet pair is cute... i saw an adorbs pair of maroon velvet shorts at Juicy this past weekend.

Gabriel said...

I will be wearing shorts all winter long, but probably not any of the above.

Torrie said...

I alllllmost bought a pair at Forever 21 the other night, but then changed the outfit around a bit in the end. Next time, for sure:).

Erica said...

I absolutely love the look of tights and shorts!

Alicia said...

I really love the idea of wearing shorts with tights. especially the sequinned shorts above to a cocktail party because sometimes dresses are just too predictable. ;)

Lindsay said...

I was just reading peoples style edition last night and there was a write up about these shorts. LOVE the look. I think the madewell ones are my fav! :)

Amber Blue Bird said...

Indeed I am wearing shorts this winter. I wasnt sure if I could make it work but it really is a nice look on anyone

this free bird said...

Hells yes! I am all up in the shorts and don't care. None of mine are as chic as these since I've stuck to denim and what I already own, but one of the last things I purchased prior to wallet restriction was a pair of sequined bloomers at crew. We'll see if I can pull them off some day or if they'll end up at Buffalo exchange.

ve-el-vet!

Annie said...

I haven't before, but maybe I'll try this year! I could totally see you in this look. Hope you like the soup if you try it! xo

Mandy said...

I still haven't tried the shorts + tights trend, but I am determined to take the dive this winter! I saw amazing shorts in UO for $20, but I didn't end up getting them. Anything thick or wool definitely looks like the best bet.

love them

As much as I can appreciate this trend on others when I see it (sometimes), I'm just not sure I can buy a pair of shorts that I know I'll only want to wear in cold weather, ya know?

I do like those tweedy ones, #1&2 though.

xoxo, Ashley

I bet some tweedish shorts would be great with boots and tights...I like the houndtooth ones too.

Ashley said...

I bet this style looks great on you! I've never been brave enough to try shorts in the winter.

I've been looking for the PERFECT pair of shorts to transition into Winter. I'm pretty sure you found them for me in #3!! Thank YOU.

Leaving the House in THIS?!?!

Kathryn said...

YES! I just got a pair from H&M in Black wool that look almost exactly like #2! I can't wait to wear them with tights and booties!!!
