Are you looking to spice up your autumn and winter wardrobes? Incorporate back in a garment to your winter closet that you may not have thought of…shorts! Shorts may seem like they are for the hot summer months only, but that’s simply not true! Winter-weight shorts and knickers (loose-fitting short pants gathered at the knee) come in heavy wools, plaids, tweeds and leather so that they can be easily be layered. You can even use your summer-weight denim shorts in the winter with the correct styling.
Styles of shorts can be mid-thigh to short (mini), depending on if you are wearing boots, booties, flats or heels. If you wish to wear shorter shorts, you can actually go shorter than you would in the summer, because you are layering them so much with tights and sweaters that it isn’t like you are stepping out of Abercrombie & Fitch or off the set of Dukes of Hazard a la Jessica Simpson.
Below, we’ve gathered photos of fashionistas donning on trend outfits that incorporate shorts during winter. You’ll find that it’s possible to stay warm and look super stylish in shorts during the winter. We’ve also shopped our 12 favorite styles of shorts that you may desire to have for yourself!
