This Week I Want to Look Like: Keira Knightley and Kate Moss

 

If you live anywhere near the Northeast, you know this weather straight up blows. While my mind is already gearing up for fall 2011, we are still months away from the spring/summer shorts wearing season–without tights, that is. I’ve personally never been too keen on the trend, but Keira Knightley and Kate Moss may be swaying me to become a year-round shorts kind of gal.

Awesomely, neither of the two looks like she is going clubbing (which for some reason I associate with shorts in the winter). In fact, I love both of their outfits. So, my lesson learned is to keep the shorts trouser-like and mid-thigh and to pair them with a distressed leather belt and black opaque tights. What are your thoughts? Do you wear shorts off-season?

    I admit that I have been wearing shorts in the fall and winter with tights ever since I saw Jessica Simpson wearing it on the Today Show a while back. This trend is a little tricky for us shorter women, so I had to see someone like JS do it before I embraced it. The trick for shorter women is to find a cut/length that hits a good part of the thigh but isn’t tight on the leg (the aforementioned trouser cut). By which I mean that I have to wear it a little shorter than the tall women above. JS also rocked it with pumps rather than boots; that makes your legs look super-long! It also helps if you keep everything from the waist down monochromatic.
