Richy Raves: Winter Shorts Are Nothing Short of Extraordinary

In short, shorts are winter-time rebels.

Have you ever headed out, scantily clad, knowing that you’d have to endure freezing temp’s as you walked to the club? It’s that stylish determination that makes me love girls who wear shorts off-season—not in the creepy way.

If your face  twisted in an ‘Are you kidding me?’ way when you read that, then maybe this particular post isn’t for you. However, I am sure that somewhere, out there, there are fashionably defiant women who don shorts when the weather says not to.

People are all like, “Why is she wearing shorts? It’s freezing.” The girl I’m talking to shrugs off this question by slinging her coat over her shoulders (rather than putting her arms through the sleeves) and walking away.

Here are a few tips to make a shorts-for-winter ensemble impress and confuse onlookers without going into hypothermia:

- Leggings add a little extra warmth while still keeping your legs looking somewhat bare.

- Fabrics like synthetic leather and Chanel-like tweed will keep you from freezing.

- Tall boots add leggy coverage.

- Oversized coats exaggerate the minimalism of a barely-there winter look.

- Get soxy with it; a thicker sock within a boot won’t even be visible.

- And since warm rises, hats can help you retain body heat and – let’s be honest—your body is pretty hot.
