Fall Dressing Tips: Jean Shorts + Tights

by taylordavies

I don’t know about the rest of the country, but New York has been having a crazy fall. I know I’ve talked (pretty extensively) about how much I love the weather we’ve been having and how lovely it is, and I suppose today is no exception. The weekend before last it snowed in Manhattan, and today it’s supposed to reach 68 degrees!

These strangely warm temperatures in typically cold months always causes me to pause in front of my closet. Could I get away with bare legs today? Sure. Does it really feel appropriate? Not exactly. At this point, just a few weeks from Thanksgiving, I’ve sort “put my legs away” for the season, if that makes sense. The happy compromise? Pairing short little things – especially denim shorts, with tights!

There are so many ways to work this look, it almost feels more versatile than a pair of dark denim skinny jeans. Seriously!

Here are a few of my favorite ways to take your summer cut-offs into the colder months:

Today I paired mine (made from an old pair of 7 For All Mankind Dojo jeans) with a raspberry-hued button down shirt, velvet slippers and my new favorite thing – my faux fur vest.

Will you embrace this denim pairing this fall and into the winter?
