The Shorts & Tights Combo: Tuesday's Yea or Nay


The Shopgirls have been all abuzz these days over shorts.   "Why that's crazy!" you say.  "It is fuh-reezing." Very, very true, but add a pair of tights and 'voila!' you have stretched the life of those shorts (one of the hottest trends of the summer) an additional two months.  

We say Yea to shorts with tights!  This look can be worn in a variety of ways - denim, silky patterned shorts, and pleated will all do the trick.  Tights can be sheer or opaque, textured, pop colored, even patterned, depending upon which look you prefer!

See below for a few different ideas.

Look 1. Pleats & Boots:  Take one pair of pleated and belted shorts and pair with killer knee high boots. While Kate Moss looks great in a paper bag, she especially looks great in this little number.   The boots make this look easy breezy.   Try out our pleated shorts from Blu Pepper!

Look 2.  Ruffled Romance:  This look is gorg.  Lace & Crochet shorts paired with sheer tights, a sheer top, and a great bootie!    Perfect for date night or any night, right :)  Try this with our black & white crochet shorts.

Look 3.  Casual Tap Pants: Add a pair of tights to a pretty, silky pair of tap pants.  With heels you have a dressy look, but with flat boots and a killer moto jacket you have a dynamite casual outfit.    Try this look with our Angie printed silky shorts & Nameless moto jacket (soon to be back in stock).

Look 4. Preppy Tweedy:  ADORABLE pretty tweed shorts with pop color tights = fantastic.  The more neutral the outfit, the crazier you can make your tights.  Would look great with our tweed/faux leather shorties!  

Just a few ideas.  You tell us what you think, friends?  Yea or Nay.
