Shorts usually get the shaft for being labeled “too casual” but they can be dressed up with a pair of tights. When you put together elegant pieces, it make the look polished but not too stuffy. Olivia Palermo’s printed short suit paired with a satin, coppery blouse is the perfect combination. Black and white can look too ordinary, but adding in a different texture and a light color really makes the look fresh.

When the tights and shorts are the same color, it creates a nice, streamlined look. Textured tights are a great choice though. Fishnet, floral or even tights dotted with rhinestones are that extra “accessory” that makes a look unique.

Booties or military boots are also good choices for the look depending if you want to look more uptown chic or downtown cool. Choose a pop of color for shoes, if you don’t want to go the neutral route, but make sure that it coordinates with the overall color scheme of your outfit.

What you wear on top is really up to you. A slim tank and loose cardigan or a crisp white shirt and funky jacket are only two of the numerous ways to dress up the look. Keep in mind that too many loose layers on the top can begin to look sloppy.

Finally, accessorize away. Bangles or dangly earrings or your favorite hat are all choices that work for this great but simple look. Shorts with tights give you a reason to wear your shorts all year long. Of course not all shorts were made for this trend, but looser, dressier shorts either in prints, lace, or a shinier fabric like satin or silk are my favorite options.

Are you fan of pairing shorts and tights together?
