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 In fact, I plan to wear this silly fad as much as I while I've got the chance, before it's completely outdated.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.
