Our favorite thing about winter is that we get to layer our cute summer stuff with some of our cozier, winter pieces. This often means long-sleeve tees under tank tops and thin sweaters over flimsy dresses. These unexpected combinations are always a hit, but there’s one more layering tactic we love that a lot of people don’t seem to understand: shorts when it’s cold out. We always wear our winter shorts over a pair of tights- sometimes even with thin socks layered, too. But the look doesn’t garner the same compliments we get for a thermal under a strapless dress. It’s more like, “why are you wearing shorts out? It’s November.” We don’t really understand that concern. It’s like no one can separate the two thoughts, “shorts” and “summer.” How is this any different from wearing a short dress with leggings? We maintain that it’s another great way of recycling your summer clothes and just a very cute look, especially with flat boots and thick gray socks. So what do you guys think? Is this a look better left to LA-based celebrities, or does it still count as legitimate winter layering?
