Trend Alert: Winter Shorts

I know they are ridiculous and ultra-trendy, but I just can't help it: I love winter shorts! In fact, I plan to wear this silly fad as much as I while I've got the chance, before it's completely outdated.

Mind you, I don't really like wearing shorts in the summer. But in the cold months, you can pair your shorts with textured tights, tall boots, and platform pumps, all of which look great with this season's tweed and plaid styles. Here's a look at some of my favorite cold-weather shorts at both designer and non-designer prices.

Secrets of Charm Tweed Shorts, $220, available here.

Robert Rodriguez Belted Walking Shorts, $265, available here.

Vince Wool Plaid Cuffed Shorts, $195, available here.

Catherine Malandrino Short Pant with Sideseam, $295, available here.

To see the non-designer versions,

Tweed Gaucho Shorts, $100, available here.

J. Crew Lightweight Wool Twill Bermuda Shorts, $98, available here.

Forever 21 Herringbone Bermuda, $27.80, available here.

Old Navy Women's Plaid Shorts, $20, available here.

I'm torn on this one, I think some people could pull it off, but I'm too tall and curvy. I wore these years ago...they were called culottes! I had cordoroy ones that I wore with tights. I must have been ahead of my time!lol

Cine - I think from the Intuition ones down. $100 and less. The last few are the cheapest.

I love these! I want to get a pair in black and wear them with black tights. I live in FL, so winter is usually mild. :)

winter shorts? sounds like an oxymoron.

I'm up north here, but I'd wear the longer ones that go to the knee with a nice pair of wool stockings. Only on days where I'd be inside for most of the day of course :) Yours Truly, DesignRchic

I think if i saw someone wearing wool short-shorts in the dead of winter, even if they were over tights, I'd laugh out loud. Too cold for my area of the map and they would look ridiculous! No thanks.

Ugly and not practical

I think those winter shorts are very unpractical for my area of the states, I'd be freezing my butt off and look stupid at the same time ... Not for winter- even if they are over tights. Fashion can be so bizarre at times.

And they'd look cute on you, too. However, I don't think this would fit my body type!
