Winter Shorts: What's the Verdict?

Photo (and related article) from www.chicagonow.com - here

Winter shorts... love them or hate them? You know, those cuffed shorts (often wool, houndstooth, checkered, etc.) that you've been seeing a lot of lately.

I can't decide, but I'm leaning toward "love." I guess "leaning toward love" really means "like," but whatever...

I bought a black pair from H & M recently and am currently trying to decide how to wear them. Ideas?

Shley recently bought a pair of these (in grey wool) and rocks them with black opaque tights and flat knee high boots. They look hot. It's like a skirt, only it keeps your bikini zone on lock down while you're out booty shaking in the winter.

I think they are super cute!! Depends on where you are going, but you could totally pair it with a cute sweater and I really like the ankle boots in the grey picture.

Thanks for the vote of confidence, ladies.

I'll rock them (or at least try to...) sometime soon and will snap a photo!

yes yes yes to winter shorts! if yours are black, maybe wear them with textured grey tights or black and brown ones (i used to have black and brown argyle tights and they were my absolute favorite and now they've disappeared..sad). good to talk to you last night. love you!

I really like the winter shorts look, but it's hard to pull off because you need the right pair (not too casual, not too long etc.). The left photo is much better than the right just because I think the gray ankle boots cut off the line too much. I can't wait to see how you wear your new shorts!

oooh, Kate. i think I have JUST the tights... we'll see how this works. Great talking to you, too! XOXO!

Cath, I'll post a picture once I get it figured out. I am concerned that my thighs are too big to look sleek in the shorts, but we'll see!
