HOW TO: HIGH WAISTED SHORTS FOR FALL/WINTER

High waisted shorts are one of my wardrobe staples, because they flatter the waist, make my legs look deceptively long, can be dressed up or down, and can be worn in any season! Here's how I would style high waisted shorts for winter.
a

I love this look because it's super simple and can be worn when the temperature's in that fickle temperature in between freezing and not-cold-enough-to-wear-jeans. You'll be warm on top with your sweater, and your legs won't be too hot or cold with your knee high socks.

This look incorporates lots of layers, and is ideal for very cold and snowy climates. You can layer with many pieces: flannels, jean button downs, leather jackets, your favorite hoodies, denim jackets, the possibilities are endless! Throw on the tights + knee high socks combo for extra warmth and you're good to go.

Now you can wear high waisted shorts in fall and winter, and won't have to pack them up after summer :) Would love to hear your suggestions or comments!

    1. Mine are pretty form fitting so they're tight on my legs. Maybe you need to buy smaller sizes!

  3. I am seriously in love with both these outfits. It's so annoying though as I don't actually have a pair of high waisted shorts or in fact high waisted anything!! I really need some. Lucky I have birthday money then ;) I really like how the first outfit gives off a slight preppy vibe and I also like how the second outfit looks like its literally been thrown together without a thought yet still looks seriously stylish!
