Shorts in the middle of winter may sound ludicrous (especially if you live in a windy, foggy, snowy, and/or rainy city), but with some heavy-duty tights and major confidence, you can pull it off without looking like you missed the memo about winter.
Where to sport this look: Just because you’re in shorts doesn’t mean you need to frolic in a field of greens. This sophisticated look can be worn to a chic restaurant, the theatre, an art/fashion show, but never on an ice-skating date with your new man (even opaque tights can rip).
