Wardrobe Obsession: Olive High-Waisted Wool Shorts

Who says you can only wear shorts during the summer time? I cut this article out of People Style Watch, probably going on about four years ago, and the trend still exists today!

Whether it’s a pair of denim cut-offs with black near-sheer nylons, pinstripe cuffed shorts with contrasting opaque tights, or sweater shorts with a pair of pattern stockings you can continue to wear the traditional summer length throughout the winter months. This season I am all about wearing my olive high-waisted wool shorts. I usually pair them with ivory lace tights & lace-up booties or some solid mauve stockings with tall riding boots. Check out all of the different tops I paired with the pair of shorts….

Based off the idea of Nicole Richie’s outfit in the article, I topped a basic ivory cotton top with a cognac suede patchwork vest and paired it with my olive high-waisted shorts. Ivory tights and brown suede boots finish off the sequential look.

Burnt orange and olive green are classic fall colors, this combination is perfect for when the temperature just starts to drop (and hey, it even resembles a pumpkin).

My silk kimono top worn backwards and tied, the olive shorts pull out the hue from within the vintage floral print.

The floral print wedges are the statement piece within this look – and create the connection between the pink poncho and olive shorts. Opaque mauve tights and short ivory socks are worn with the outfit as well (both colors are also within the print of the shoe).

The coral poppy print top paired with the olive shorts is a creative color blocking combination. Worn with ivory lace tights; the silk, wool and lace is a unique textural combination.

A bright fuchsia crochet sweater adds a nice pop of color during the long, dreary winter and

I love this layered look; the feminine floral silk blouse contrasts with the masculine olive wool shorts and the plush fur vest that is layered over the top. Mauve tights and ivory leather booties pull the light hues from within the navy top.

Do you have a pair of shorts you continue to wear, even thought summer has ended?
