How to wear: denim shorts in the fall

Shorts can be found here

It was kind of hard to think of outfits for denims shorts for fall because when I think of denim shorts, I think of summer. For fall, I think that looser denim shorts would be better than the tighter ones because then it would be possible to also wear tights underneath the shorts. Here, I thought up 3 ways to wear denim shorts in cold weather:

Outfit details here

1. First I picked a sheer blouse with an interesting print. Then I added a classic black blazer and black shoes. To keep legs from freezing, you can wear knee high socks.

2. The first thing I will say is: I LOVE JEFFREY CAMPBELL SHOES. If I could buy JC shoes, I would buy the one in this outfit. This outfit would probably be for early fall days because it will keep you less warm than the other outfits will. Again, I added socks to keep legs from freezing. Except this time, the socks are more colorful!

3. First, I picked a jacket that has a great cut. Then tights and biker boots to keep warm and a scarf to add some color. 

Basic formula to wear shorts in the fall:

denim shorts + ankle boots + tights/socks + great jacket + pop of color = one yayful outfit

  1. Good options...I think shorts that are high-waisted make great winter wear especially...you can belt them over long sleeves and then wear a chunky cardigan over that because the belt keeps your waist defined.

    I don't have any denims I wear in winter, but I've got some awesome gray wool high-waisted shorts...I'll post them some time soon!

  25. I love these looks. I think denim shorts look perfect in fall, especially early in the season before it's too cold. I've always loved wearing tights under them.

  49. Some cute combinations for fall. I love the blazer addition in particular. I've always been a fan of pairing something unexpected together and denim shorts don't always scream "wear me with a blazer" if you know what I mean. xoxo

  52. Nice picks for the outfits! Do you have any suggestions for if you want to wear denim shorts in fall, but you're looking for an outfit that's a bit less casual? I kinda think I'm a bit old to pull off the knee-high socks thing except on weekends hehe
