Winter Shorts Worth Braving the Cold For

Remember when you would have scoffed at the idea of wearing purple pants? Or fuzzy shearling boots? Or a necklace with a menacing octopus charm? Well, even if you never thought this day would come, it has—winter shorts are a thing now. Hear us out—winter shorts are really not much different from wearing a dress in the winter. You pick the least-terrible weather day, toss on a pair of opaque tights, and then secretly relish all the compliments from friends and co-workers who are schlubbing around in sweatpants and wooly sweaters. Winter shorts are not for the fashionably faint of heart. But they are so worth it.

 

Leather-Look Shorts

 

 

This flat-front pair is simple, but the look of real leather keeps them interesting. Leather-look shorts, $52.77

 

Floral Tapestry Shorts

 

 

If there's such a thing as "formal shorts," these feel fancy like a vintage tapestry. Tapestry shorts, $64

 

Lace “Peacock” Shorts

 

 

These shorts are covered with a layer of faux-peacock feathers, almost creating the look of a kicky miniskirt. Gilded Peacock lace shorts, $225

 

High-Waisted Floral Shorts

 

 

There are two kinds of women in the world: those who wear hot pants and those who do not. If you are a hot-pants-wearing woman, you could do worse than these. Printed embroidered short, $114.34

 

Embellished Paisley Shorts

 

 

When you wear these out on Saturday night, don't be surprised if everyone's looking at your butt, because they will be. In a good way. Embellished shorts, $70

 

Pearl Beaded Shorts

 

 

The color feels springy, but it's balanced out by the wintery pearl studs. Pearl beaded shorts, $38

 

Houndstooth Shorts

 

 

These have a conservative, boxy shape and a little extra length. Perfect with a black blazer. Pleated shorts, $70

 

Glitter Shorts

 

 

As if someone crushed up a disco ball and spilled it all over your lap. Colorful glitter shorts, $19.80

 

Floral Lace Shorts

 

 

Wear them now with tights and a sweater; wear them bare-legged in spring. You win either way! Floral lace shorts, $17.80

 

Neoprene Shorts

 

 

In an ultra-modern palette of palettes and dark black, this pair in neoprene with an elasticized waist feel super-sporty. Shorts, $195

 

Gold Snake-Print Shorts

 

 

What Dynasty's Krystle Carrington would wear if she wore winter shorts. (She probably does, come to think of it.) Sequined pleated shorts, $86.44

 

Floral Lace Shorts

 

 

A different take on floral lace, this pair's soft, flowy silhouette is complemented by a scalloped hem. Scalloped lace short, $78
