Oh I talk a lot of shit about shorts with tights sometimes. I find it super uncomfortable when your tights get all bunchy and when your shorts feel too tight from layering. But I finally found a comfortable tights/shorts combo, and only feel slightly like a crazy person. Here’s the key to nailing shorts with tights:
1. FIT: The shorts should be loose. If they are tight without tights, don’t even bother. You will be sorry. Only attempt if you don’t mind readjusting every ten minutes.
2. COLOR: If you select tights in a similar hue as your shorts, you will appear taller. Same goes with the color of your shoes. Black shorts, black tights, and black shoes will look super sleek, slim, and long. I am not displaying an example of this!
3. LENGTH: Tights can save short shorts, I tell you. They automatically make super short appear sophisticated, and you don’t have to have tan legs OR shave! Win win!
So there you go, I have convinced myself to try more shorts and tights combos now. What about you?
