Though the shorts-and-tights trend was first introduced last year, it’s making a comeback for the 2012 holiday season, offering a fresh way to show off your stems all winter long.
While the floral shorts Beyonce wore in Florida recently weren’t exactly out of place in Miami, where it’s shorts’ weather year-round, the busy print and coordinating top gave the warm-weather look a more seasonal feel.
For those of us not lucky enough to spend our winters in warm climates, follow the lead of Kardashian, Kerr and recent shorts convert Jennifer Hudson, who have all been spotted in leather shorts this season. The heavier material makes the summery style a winter-appropriate look. Treat leather shorts like you would a leather mini, and pair them with shorts, heels and long-sleeves on top.
If you’re looking for something a little less edgy, try a winter-friendly material like wool or tweed. Kristin Cavallari’s metallic tweed shorts are festive and fashionable yet cold-weather appropriate. A big fan of the trend, the new mom was also spotted in a hot pink pair earlier this fall, which she winterized with a billowy long-sleeve top and heels.
The best part about Cavallari’s shorts is that they’ll work no matter where you live (or where you’re traveling for the holidays), from New York to L.A. and everywhere in between — just add tights when the temps drop below 50.
