STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Shorts and Tights Done Right

Wool tights are back with a vengeance this fall and taking us all by pleasant surprise! Wool tights provide the perfect companion to any pair of shorts. Move over miniskirts because this season shorts are taking over by storm. You can dig through your summer wardrobe and take out all your shorts because you will get good use out of them this season. The practicality of wool tights is what I love about this trend. They provide comfort, warmth and most importantly great fashion. They are beyond versatile and can transform any outfit from preppy college gal to rocker chick to classy lady to trendy chic. They are perfect for pairing with jean shorts, wool shorts, tweed shorts and even leather shorts. This Fashionista rocked AG Jeans ripped denim shorts with HUE merino wool tights and slouchy suede flat Steve Madden ankle boots that make this look practical for class with an edgy vibe. The best part about this trend is that it can be instantaneously transformed from day to night. Swap the flat boots for a pair of heeled booties and you have a chic ensemble for a night out. This effortless transition makes wool tights and shorts easy, fun and practical for any college student with a busy schedule and even larger social calendar. Wool tights and shorts was a trend that was slowing evolving last year, but will be even bigger this fall and an important trend into the winter. This Fashionista completed her look with a black caplet with oversized gold buttons that was purchased at Forever21 last year. For extra warmth this Fashionista tucked a faux fur grey scarf into the neck of her caplet. Other pairing ideas for shorts and tights this fall are absolutely endless, from chunky knits, to turtlenecks, to blazers and oversized tees.

Hint: The best shoes to go with wool tights are boots and flats. Pumps can work as long as they have a trendy appeal to them (for example; suede pumps with chunky heel, wedge heel, platform heel, etc.).
