Yesterday I waxed poetic about how shorts and tights work together like peanut butter and jelly, like Tofurky and Thanksgiving, like football pads and Black Friday crowds. Today I wanted to show you six more pairings that can take you anywhere from a casual day shopping to a fun night out. My classic black shorts are one of my most-worn wardrobe staples, but it’s fun to mix it up with interesting fabrics like tweed, sequins, leather, and brocade.
I’d wear the first two looks out to the bars with a basic black tank (or metallic grey for the second look) and a pair of black booties. It’s a refreshing change from the typical minidress that gives you a unique, funky vibe. I’d add a fun blouse with a vintage feel to the third and fourth looks and style them with loafers or flats. The fifth look could go casual with Converse and a graphic tee or sweet and prim with a classic white button-down and kitten heels. The last look works well for an upscale brunch or daytime party with an ivory puffed-sleeve top and elegant ballet flats.
Which of these looks is most wearable to you? How would you style these looks? Are you a fan of the shorts-and-tights look, or do you have a different go-to pairing?
