Winterize your Jeans Shorts

Alexander Wang Fall 2008 RTW

Rumi,Wendy,Andy,Gala,Almah


Keira Knightley,Lilly Allen,Kate Moss,Katie Holmes


So here I am again - finally on holiday! Only 2 days to Christmas eve left and I haven't finished all my presents yet. Hopefully I'll today....

Wearing jeans shorts and tights underneath is currently loitering around. Whether at the Alexander Wang's Fall 2008 show, on the bloggers or the celebs everybody winterizes his jeans shorts. I liked it the most on Gala since she has wonderful legs and styled it perfectly. The variant with the wider shorts as seen at Alexander Wang (1st pic) also pleased me a lot.

Actually I'm (most times) totally into the tights+shorts combination but on me it looks aweful and I feel very uncomfy. I tried it often but the result never had been very satisfying. Well I guess I'll better leave this trend to the others...

What's your opinion?Hate it or love it, leave it or take it?

Happy "Christmas Countdown"

Love

Mimi


P.S. Sorry for the chaotic layout but my blogger is spinning!

Ah winterizing shorts. looks good!!

Styleseeking Zurich said...

I really like wearing my shorts with tights but it feels like people are staring more than when I wear them bare-legged and that makes me a bit self-conscious. Other than that, any one whose legs are in a good shape should wear them.. :)

MizzJ said...

I like this trend, but it would've been interesting to see more ways that people are styling them, like say with diff color shorts and/or tights, the use of legwarmers, diff types of shoes etc. Great post though, hope your Blogger fixes itself soon!
