Kind Of Blue

Marina Monroe Wearing A Matching Set

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!


Marina Monroe Wears Shorts For 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.
