For some reason, I never want to dress appropriately for the weather. When it’s super hot out, I’m always in the mood to wear my leather leggings, and when it’s finally cold in LA I get the urge to wear shorts!
Such was the case the other day, when I reached for my blue shorts suit from Topshop. I had my heart set on wearing it, but it ended up being one of the coldest days in LA so far- not ideal weather for shorts. Luckily, with a few styling tricks I was able to take my shorts suit from warm weather to winter!
First things first: add tights. Tights worn under shorts is one of my go-to winter looks, and since LA weather hardly ever dips below 50 degrees, tights provide all the coverage you need! Black tights gave some edge to my sky-blue suit, and I matched them back to a black silk top underneath my jacket.
Next, pick out some chunky boots that are tall enough to wear socks under! I chose my ever-present Rag & Bone booties in brown suede- I LOVE mixing brown and black! So chic. These boots are tall enough to slip some ankle-length socks under, too, which provided some extra warmth.
Once I was ready to brave the cold, I added some last minute accessories. A fun statement necklace (also from Topshop) was all I needed! I made sure to layer the necklace over my jacket so that it wouldn’t get lost in the look.
See? You can totally wear shorts throughout the winter season.
