Yes, you can wear shorts year-round

If this Helene M employee can do it, so can you. After all, who better to solidify a trend than someone that works at one of Portland’s chicest boutiques? The trick to doing the shorts-with-tights trend right is to keep it uniform. Black shorts? Wear it with black tights and shoes. Gray shorts? If your tights and shoes are the same color, it’ll “lengthen” you. Who doesn’t want longer legs?! And you don’t need to rock a dressier pair of shorts to pull this off. I love it when girls wear their jean shorts year-round too. Remember how great this Portland resident looked? And how cute is this?!
