How To Wear: Shorts In Cold Weather

Wearing shorts in the middle of the fall or winter can be a little tricky for some. But I’m here to tell you that it’s really as easy as wearing a skirt or dress during the colder months. All you have to remember are a few simple rules, for lack of a better word. First, and this is a biggie, you have to create a continuous line of color from the shorts to your legs or your legs to your shoes or from shoes to legs to shorts. Also, wear something that skims the body on top to avoid any boxiness. It can be a fitted top, sweater, or even a jacket that highlights the waist. In addition, if you’re going for a light pair of shorts, then balance out the color while making it season appropriate with a darker neutral. But in this instance, if you choose black then don’t also add in gray and brown or vice versa. See these rules in practice with the two shorts for cold weather looks I put together.
