I love shorts in the winter. So reminds me of my mom in the early 90's!!

I seriously covet the leather ones.

I say fall! but to brrr for me for winter ;)

Jaime said...

I like this for winter- tights and boots- fab! Any wool/tweed choices work for me!

Erika said...

I have such an obsession with tailored shorts. I'm hoping some will go on sale now that the cooler months are fast approaching. Oh, I would give anything for a pair from Chloe. I saw Eva Longoria wearing a peach-colored pair with a bow sash in a magazine a few months back...pure bliss. I want! :)

Jenny said...

Might be cold but sure looks good! Loving the Chris Benz silk shorts!

yiqin; said...

I am so in love wit the leather shorts!!

Jacqueline said...

Carrie, I totally agree. I love shorts with tights in the winter. I want some sequin trouser looking shorts. I need to stop buying sequin stuff, but I can't. I also like the high waisted shorts look. Loving the leather ones!

I'm all for them and some great legs on show!

K.Line said...

My 9 y o daughter, who doesn't read fash mags for trends, has decided to do the winter shorts thing on her own merit. She takes summer short shorts and puts them over leggings. Then wears leg warmers. It's very cute. And strangely appropriate.

Penny said...

Those Chloe ones have to be my favorite. Something about that look always reminds me Molly Ringwald and all those cool New Wave kids from back in the day:)

Fashion Moment said...

I love, love it! You made such a great selection darling!

Leslie @ A Blonde Ambition said...

Love the idea of shorts in winter, very reminiscent of the early 90's, but still so cute and modern.

J'Adore Fashion said...

love winter short with cute boots...like the chloe shorts and the last jumpsuit is too cute!
xoxo

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Winter shorts...I might actually have to do that this year. Fabulous!

Tea For Two said...

I've decided that I will rock winter shorts this year. Previous years I've thought it was a bit of a naff idea, but I'm liking what I'm seeing this year, especially the subtle grey ones with the preppy cuts and school uniform materials, teamed with thick black tights and bright t-shirts. Great post, I enjoyed looking through the pictures.

LPC said...

This, my dears, is too much of a stretch. But enjoy.

CC said...

Love the high-waist, leather ones! And that pleated skirt is mighty adorable. :)

Niki B. said...

LOVE winter shorts. one of my favourite looks this fall were the chloe leather shorts paired with their OTK boots.
xo!

Keith said...

I like these. Very cool looking. Heck, I'm still wearing shorts right now. It's not gotten cool enough here to stop wearing them yet.

LENORENEVERMORE said...

I love the contrast stitching detail in one of the shorts CC! Heard this coming winter is going to be a cold-freezing one... ~xo*

Carlotta said...

I've bought a new pair at Zara an't wait to wear them with opaque tights!!

Inty swetha said...

Even i don't think "winter shorts" is a contradiction! i wear shortly mostly during winter. The first shorts is sexy! and i loved all the leather shorts! They are making me kinda mad:)

Children of the 90s said...

It reminds me of sort of a retro pin-uppy look. Cute!

B a la Moda said...

Wow, great picture selection. My conclusion is that I need to get some high waist shorts. They look very nice.

I really love the layered look with shorts over leggings or over stockings. Very cute. :)

Sheri said...

I love the shorts featured!

BARGAIN BEX said...

I just love this look and trend ... I think it is so chic.

All I can hope is that the Utah winter allows me to don this style at least once before it gets too too cold!

Fingers crossed!

I'm in love with the idea of formal shorts paired with tights for cocktails. So sweet. :)

Taylor Sterling said...

shorts are so in this fall. Perfect selection as always!

Mimi said...

i love shorts and these are all fabulous! love those fun yellow plaid ones! ;)

E said...

I have been obsessed OBSESSED with finding a good, but not bank-breaking pair of leather shorts and thank you so much for posting the Lulu's pair!!

Sam said...

Pretty cute I have to admit but I think you'd have to choosy about the ones you get so that they are flattering....might be a bit tricky for those of us who don't have mile high legs!

Pixel Wild Child said...

So shorts are fashionable? Love them but they don't look good on me. Great selections of picks!

Peter Breese said...

Black and white stripe runway piece is tip-top! Nice CC.

theswellelife.com said...

I didn't realise there were so many shorts looks from the fall collections! We can get away with that in an English winter, though I'm by the sea so it may be a bit brisk on the legs. Maybe I'll test it out!

Becca Jane said...

I have to say i do like the look of shorts in winter with fabulous tights and boots. A cute way to change things up

Couture Cookie said...

Yes to shorts in the winter! I like them really short with opaque tights underneath. :)

Style Redux said...

You have no idea how much I want those Phillip Lim leather shorts. I found these great grey tweed See by Chloe shorts that I can wear now that it's cooling down. :) But, a leather pair are definitely on my list of things I need!

Christen said...

I desperately want a pair of those leather shorts for this winter... They are just so versatile,

Chessa! said...

hmmm...I didn't know how I felt about it at first but I kind of love it. especially with really really dark tights or some fabulous tights that are available this season with lace and crochet and everything.

miss cavendish said...

Ilove winter shorts, but I prefer a straight length to a tulip-y flare. Am surprised to see flared shorts making such a comeback!

CMA said...

LOVE the Missoni look!

trendkat said...

My God I love laying! And the thought of bringing out a new trend with shorts just adds to layering with leggings!

Thank you so much for letting me know about my link! I fixed it, so definitely fill out the questionnaire!

P.S. ... I really love that you can wear those shorts with blazers!

I love love love winter shorts!!!!! These runway inspirations are great, Carrie. My favourites are the Chloe and Dsquared2 shorts!

GlamDistrict said...

I got me a pair of grey shorts last winter and I guess I have worn them just twice. I like them but I don't seem the find the right occasion for them. I love Jaeger London's look!

Magdalena said...

These are gorgeous, especially the gray puddle ones (forgot the name). Wonderful post!

Averill said...

Since I live in Houston, shorts in winter aren't at all out of the question!

Anika said...

CC, we must be on the same wavelength. I recently cut up a pair of thrifted leather pants to make cuffed leather shorts. I adored them instantly and decided to wear them out with stockings and boots.

The perfect new take on winter wear.

Love it, and the pics. Thanks for sharing dear

Hanako66 said...

thanks for this...I needed inspiration!

rossovelvet said...

That's my credo ! I never put jeans or pants in winter, so boring xD.
I love tights and beautiful shorts, skirts and coats and everything !!

nicole said...

awesome post, it totally showcases the various types of shorts on trend for the season. it also reminds me that I'm still on a search for a pair of leather shorts and sequin shorts. you know, if I keep following your blog, I may just go broke! lol

I love the look-especially with tights or boots.
