Summer has officially come to a close and while I'm deeply saddened that I will have to trade in light dresses for heavy knits I am excited for a whole new season. I am forever trying to incorporate my summer pieces into fall. Tights under shorts is another eighties style that continues to be seen on everybody from magazine editorials and even girls around college campuses. Even designers such as Rag & Bone, Proenza Schouler and Nanette Lepore are incorporating this style into their runway looks. This fashionista chose a tailored pair of denim jeans with long black leggings and a striped diagonal shirt. Though she is sporting a pair of sandals I would recommend wearing a pair of flats or riding boots to glam up the look or even to add a touch of grunge. To create this look I would choose a pair of shorts like these as well as tights from Anthropologie such as these that are perfect for when the temperture drops. Not feeling this style? Why not try a dress with tights or even a skirt. Alexa Chung's new line for Madewell has some great pieces such as this patterned loose dress.
Hint: Be careful when deciding what shorts to wear. Wearing shorts that are too tight or pairing them with fishnets can look a little bit too crazy like a halloween costume!
