wants to give up their fave summer staples just ‘cause the weather’s turnin’
chilly? Instead of sending your shorts
to the back of your drawer, try rocking them with a pair of tights and some
other cool weather items. You’ll be
showin’ off your awesome legs without worrying about shivering on the walk from
the bus to your house!
Go girly with a patterned pair
shorts are awesome in the summer: they’re the perfect statement piece to throw
on with a tee and some Toms. When the
temp starts dropping, turn your fave patterned cutoffs into a pretty posh
outfit by adding a bright collared shirt and some solid, opaque tights. Sparkly flats are the perfect mix of glam and
comfy and look oh-so chic. Simple
jewelry finishes off a wild but ladylike look that you can rock anytime.

Go Western cutie in cords
a spin on plain old cutoffs by trying corduroy instead of regular denim. They’ll look totally cozy and cute with a
silky plaid top and some brown tights.
Cowboy boots will give you a Western outdoorsy feel that’s perfect for fun
weekend trips apple picking or walks through crunchy leaves with your
bestie. Try a set of bangles made out of
different material like wood, metal and plastic that will look totally down-to-earth and relaxed.

Go rocker chic with embellished pockets
are a great way to rock shorts that might be shorter than you usually wear.
Because of the freedom to go shorter, try a pair with embellished pockets
peeking out, like these! The gold sequins give just a hint of edge, so use the
rest of outfit to highlight your tough side.
A studded headband, a skull tank and a high top all give off a too-cool
vibe that looks great all by itself or under a leather jacket.

Go cozy boho in printed tights
your worn-in denim cutoffs gives you the perfect opportunity to get a pair of
daring, patterned tights. Try a
light-wash short with a dark tight to really let your gams take the lead. A cozy sweater and combat boots look relaxed
and tone down the crazy. Throw on a
pretty chain necklace for a simple touch that gives your outfit just the right
amount of glitz.
