Shorts With Tights: Still Trendy?

Monday November 22, 2010 by Hafsa


Just because you're transitioning your wardrobe to frost-friendly attire doesn't mean you should banish summer shorts into storage . Wear them over a pair of solid, knit or patterned tights for an edgy new look! The shorts-over-tights trend has been a long lasting trend, but we still think it's hot when worn well.

These celebs were spotted pairing shorts with tights earlier this year...

Jessica Alba, Emma Roberts, Christina Aguilera

...and designers included the shorts-over-tights look at Fall/Winter 2010 RTW Fashion Week.

Nicole Miller, G-Star, Tracy Reese

This is a trend you can really have some fun with. Pair some tights with denim shorts for a casual look like Emma Roberts...

Suzy Shier Roll Cut Light Wash Shorts (C$19.98) with Forever 21 Classic Shear Tights (C$7.80); Levis Indigo Shorts (C$29.95) with Zara Open Weave Tights (C$19.90)

Pair cuffed shorts with solid or pattered tights for a lunch out or an evening date...

Zara Pleated Bermuda Shorts (C$45.90) with Gap Opaque Tights (C$16.50); Topshop Cupro Roll Up Hem Tie Waist Shorts (US$70) with French Connection Floral Tights (C$35)

Some shorts can even be worn over tights to work...

Forever 21 Classy Trouser Short (C$21.80) with Gap Herringbone Tights in Purple Rain (C$16.50); GoJane Multicolor Pocket Shorts (US$14.95 sale) with Zara Coloured Stockings (C$15.90)

...or take them out for a hot night on the town!

Arden B. Cuffed Sequin Short (US$49) with Forever 21 Basic Solid Tights (C$4.50); Topshop Premium Heavily Embellished Shorts (US$110) with Banana Republic Matte Opaque Tights (C$20)

I adore colored stockings, so fun for our not so playful winter!

Agreed! I would definitely wear this if I was careful about how I put it all together. I think this is not a look you should try haphazardly.

I still like this trend though I personally haven't worn it. It can look really great if you accessorize properly.

I like the way Jessica Alba wears it the best. Denim shorts with the tights reminds me of the 80's.
