Finally… finally! I found a place I wanted to try out this new fall trend!
The place was a small club in LA called the Satellite. I went with family to see Gotye. (awesome concert, awesome people, awesome time).
I’ve been waiting quite awhile to give the look a test run but the whole shorts-with-tights look isn’t really work-appropriate, in my humble opinion. And this was the first time in what feels like forever that I ventured out to do something that didn’t call for sweatpants and a hoodie.
I think the key is to keep the shorts loose.
I’ve seen some celebs working the tight jeans shorts over tights and I’m not totally sold – that’s a lot of “tight” going in to one ensemble. To me, it looks more frumpy than fashion-friendly. I feel very confused when I see this combo and it makes me uncomfortable.
BUT put some loose fitting shorts over those tights and you are in style this season. I wore some Army-green printed shorts from Forever 21 with opaque tights, my BA boots and a loose-fitting black tank.
I was into it.
Here are some examples I love on women with longer legs and a better photographer.
Give it a try, you might like it! Use what you have in your closet first to make sure you’re even stoked on it.
Happy closet browsing!
