How To Wear Winter Shorts
Shorts are not only for summer anymore! Watch and learn the proper ways of wearing winter shorts and look absolutely fantastic all over!
Here's a couple of ideas how you can wear winter shorts. When you're choosing a pair of winter shorts, I think the first thing to bear in mind is that the fabric and the texture of the short should actually lend itself to winter time. That, what you don't want to do is to choose a pair of very, very, obviously summer shorts and try to make them work in the winter time and style them up in the same way that you would style up the proper winter shorts, and I'm going to talk you here that now.
So, choosing the correct texture and fabric, what I would look for in a winter short is something that's slightly tweedy. It might be a heavier fabric, something like suede, something like leather, that there's more substance and weight to the actual fabric. So, the way that you might put that together, you might style that more formally, if you wanted to wear that to work, if your workplace permits.
You might put that together with a pair of black opaque tights. You might put that with a pair of ankle boots, also in black, for example. Then you might put something underneath on the top, maybe a fitted black top, could be a polo neck.
So, you're creating that long lean line underneath and then allowing the shorts to be the real piece in your outfit that people are looking at. Now, bear in mind your body shape as well when you're wearing winter shorts. If you're creating that long lean line look that I was talking about with your opaque tights, black boots, black polo neck, the eye would come right down to this part of your body so make sure that this is something that you're happy to be drawing attention to.
If you're very, very curvy around this area, say, you have a triangle body shape, meaning, that you got a smaller upper body and a more ample posterior, this might not be a great look for you because the eye will immediately gravitate to the hips and the bottom. If that's a good part of the body, if you're straighter on the hips and bottom or if you're what we call neat hourglass, meaning, that the curves on the hip and bottom are in line with the shoulders, this can be a fabulous look. A way to make that slightly more casual, you might choose a different type of short if you want to wear that at the weekend or wear that with Plimsolls or with soft trainers, I probably wouldn't style up this shorts that way.
They have that city feel to them, they're quite chic, quite elegant, so I would leave this type of short for more sophisticated look. If you want to do something that's a little bit more casual, you might go for a slightly distressed look, bearing in mind the length of this as well. So if you're very curvy on the hips and bottom, you might not want to go for this tweed, hot pants look.
This will again draw attention to the break of the short. So, that's ending at an unflattering part of your leg, hip and bottom for you. That's not really a look that you want to aspire form.
The slightly distressed look could be worked with jeggings underneath in a coordinating color. You could wear that then with loose layers, over top t-shirts, sort of distressed marled long sleeve t-shirt could look great with that. Then with a pair of soft, flat shoes, could be Plimsolls, Converse, something along those lines that you're still getting the warmth, obviously not sandals on a winter time, depending where you're living.
And just to bring this together, and you don't want to try to mimic the look of a sleeker, city short in heavier, tweed, leather, suede, whatever type of heavier winter fabric, this look will not work with an ordinary summer cotton short. You could not style this up with black tights and black boots and get away with looking great. There are a couple of tips on choosing winter shorts for women. .
