The shorts with tights trend is one of those “love it or hate it” type of things, we at chictrends happen to love it, when it’s worn properly. Celebrities like Kate Moss, Nicole Richie and Alexa Chung have proven that this look can work on the streets and on the red carpet.  We love this trend because it’s a great way to show off your legs without showing to much skin and you’ll be able to get some wear out of your shorts in fall and winter time.  Another great thing about this look is that you can even wear it to the office when appropriately styled.

For a fun and fresh fall office look pair tweed shorts with tights and add a structured blazer to finish off the look. As for shoes we recommend going with a super trendy pair of oxford style lace up ankle boots. All of the elements in this outfit are work wear appropriate and if you happen to go out after work you’ll still be looking chic. For a fun date night version of the shorts with tights trend we suggesting pairing denim shorts with a printed pair of leggings and adding a tucked in sleek tank top. This look shows off your figure in an alluring yet subtle way.
