Winter Shorts Outfit Ideas
- Winter shorts and coat
Winter shorts and over the knee boots are a super easy outfit idea, all you need is to find an eye-catching pair of boots that can keep your legs extra warm, plus you can add chunky wool socks underneath, so no one can notice you are wearing them. Then you will need velvet, denim or leather shorts, blouse, sweater or any other top and a cozy coat, trench or biker jacket. Longer heavy fabric shorts is another option you’ve got. You will need a sleek leather shorts with a knee-grazing silhouette which can keep you covered up in all the right ways. Then you can add a cozy sweater or any other top and layer it under a warm coat.
- Leather shorts winter outfits
Leather accents always make the lady look special, no matter if this is a chic leather jacket, leather handbag, leather top or leather shorts. I do love to see women who appear in leather shorts worn with opaque tights, ankle boots, and leather jackets. The result looks incredibly stylish and rich.
- Denim shorts winter outfits
Denim is a cool way to underline your uniqueness, make things look edgy and individual. It can be loose denim shorts worn over black tights, a simple pullover sweater, wrap scarf and completed with ankle boots. You can also cuff up denim shorts team them with a plaid shirt, combat boots and add a super cozy cardigan. Speaking of denim shorts, then there are lots of styles to choose from: boyfriend denim, ripped, loose-fit, slim-fit, high-waisted, front buttoned, etc. All depends on your personal choice and the look you want to achieve (either smart chic or casual).
- Winter shorts with tights
Black opaque tights can be another great style to pair with shorts. All you need is to pair them with matching shorts, creating a flawless and sleek monochrome look. By the way, you can find out more on how to wear tights in Winter, just see my blog post and get inspired by my favorite ideas you can try this year. I recommend to try on black tights with black leather shorts, but you can try something else. Speaking of monochrome looks, then it’s very individual thing. I mean, you can easily go with other colors, like burgundy tights and blue denim shorts, emerald tights and burgundy velvet shorts, etc. I love to see women who go for a tweed short suit and complete it with tights and pretty pumps. Tights with a print or pattern will make your outfit more unique. I love to see polka dot tights, they look both sexy and sweet.
- Winter shorts with leggings
Another alternative is leggings. Choose a pair of warm leggings, so you can pair them with light shorts. Keep your leggings neutral colored and try them on with your favorite shorts: denim, leather, wool or cotton does not matter, as the base layer is already warm.
