TREND: The Shortcut to Shorts

Mother nature can’t make up her mind, but we have all made up ours: We want spring. We’re tired of the wind, the cold, and the snow, but our desire for spring stretches far beyond the lousy weather. We want spring fashion. We want to feel the wind in our hair and the sun on our back as we frolic across the Pentacrest wearing sundresses, skirts, or shorts.

However, we can’t always get what we want, and this Fashionista is a perfect reminder of how to make the best of what we have.

She did this with a relaxed but edgy look featuring an oversized blue button up, rich denim shorts, tights, and hiker boots. Yes, Fashionistas and Fashionistos, I said shorts, but I also said tights too.

Wearing shorts and tights together seems to be an emerging trend around campus, and it is a powerful one. It allows all of us anxious spring shoppers to take the tags off of our new pairs of shorts and do something different with them.

This Fashionista's look is laid back and ready for class. She achieved it by simply wearing a baby blue button up half way tucked in allowing her to show off her shorts while drawing some attention to her classic blue button up as well. She then finished her look with a kick by adding bold hiker boots.  

The shorts and tights combination can also be dressed up for downtown Iowa City. I recommend doing this with black dress shorts, tights, a one-of-a-kind top, and pumps.  

But, no matter how you chose to pair your shorts and tights together, the look is easy to achieve, memorable, and fun. I personally feel that there is nothing better than this shortcut to shorts!
