How to Style Shorts in Winter

How to Style Shorts in Winter

With all the winter parties that have taken place lately, and the sales, I feel like I can’t buy enough clothes! If I love nice skirts and dresses (yes even in winter) I also think that shorts are super fashionable in winter, and can be worn to a fancy event. Follow me to find out what my latest favourite party outfit looks like!

How to Wear Shorts to a Fancy Event

One of the great things about shorts is that you feel more confortable than if you were wearing a skirt. You basically know that no one will see your nickers. Let’s be honest, we are all afraid this could happen. And the second thing is that not many people will think of wearing shorts, so you can be 99% sure you won’t be dressed like someone else.


Here I’m wearing one of my favourite piece, a dark beige/light brown high waisted pair of shorts. I just love the buttons on the side! And I decided to wear it with a long-sleeved blouse, to make the outfit a little more elegant. As it’s winter I chose black tights. For accessories I only decided to wear long earrings that match the colours of my blouse and shorts. I also went for a purse with a lot of details as my outfit is quite plain. As this outfit is to be worn to an event, I went for black heels.




Sometimes it’s hard to choose an outfit for a party. We’re often afraid to be over dressed or underdressed. This is why I nearly always go for a simple outfit, without too much details but still elegant (or at least I try) and go for accessories that stand out. That way if I’m the only one with a flashy purse or jewellery, I can still save the day and take them of and leave them in the cloakroom…

What is your go-to outfit for a winter party? Do you wear shorts in winter?

See you soon, love

    Love the way you styled those shorts! I live in Spain so it’s still pretty warm even though it’s winter! I loved the earrings from H&M too! Cos

    Honestly I’m not a fan of shorts but that’s only because I have no idea how to style them except for when I wear them on holiday in the summer. This outfit is absolutely gorgeous and you look stunning. I completely agree with how hard it is to choose outfits to parties with the fears of being overdressed or underdressed. This post makes me want to go out of my comfort zone a bit more and style my clothes different to how I normally would!

    These shorts look so lovely on you, so flattering and the colour is gorgeous! I can’t say I tend to wear shorts at all really as being more of a curvy girl they’re not the most flattering thing on me – I tend to stick to skirts! But I love how you’ve styled this and the white top and earrings definitely give them a lovely bright feel! πŸ™‚

      Thanks lovely! I didn’t used to like shorts, as I thought they didn’t suit my legs, but I’ve learned to love them πŸ™‚ x

    I always used to wear shorts with tights – I think it’s such a lovely look and can definitely be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion! I have a lovely lilac skort which I love but I’d love something a bit less summery to wear in Winter.

    I love wearing shorts in winter! I think it can look great with layering on dressed down days and sometimes with thicker tights it can even be a little warmer than trousers, especially leather ones. I love the style of the ones you’re wearing here, it’s a beautiful outfit x

      Totally agree, I love wearing tights will wooly tights x

    Lovely outfit! I’ve only ever had a couple of pairs of shorts, which I used to wear with black tights when I was in my late teens and early twenties, with either flats or heels depending on the occasion. I’m definitely more of a jeans and boots girl these days as they’re more practical for me but love a dress or skirt if I’m going out for the night! xx

      I agree that jeans and boots on a daily basis is the way to go haha x

    Never have I ever….worn shorts with tights! But you very much have me thinking of giving it a try! You look a chic! Love the clutch too – black and white is so versatile and the pattern is perfectly funky.

    I love your earrings, and your shorts are gorgeous as well! I haven’t wore shorts and tights for years since I was a teen, but you make them look so classy and beautiful, definitely something I’m going to try!

    I love your use of creamy colors and those poppin’ chandelier earrings! You can never go wrong with chandelier earrings! Well, maybe in some cases! But you would know best, Ms. Fashionista! πŸ’
