Shorts over tights

Black shorts over opaque tights, chunky shoes, 70s hat

I am not a big fan of shorts, I mean "short" shorts. They seem just a bit too frivolous for my taste. Will never wear ones on their own but inspired by one of Curtise's latest posts I decided to try the shorts-over-tights look. And have to say that I liked it and felt quite comfortable and at ease.

Black shorts over opaque black tights with chunky shoes, maroon sweater, cat theme scarf and hat

Thought my maroon sweater would look good against the blackness of the shorts-tights combination and the big chunky shoes would go nice with the look as well. The catty scarf ads some joyous note and the hat completes the look.

Will definitely try other variants of the look, with different colours and accessories.

Have a nice day!


  1. I love your joyous catty scarf and new outfit idea. I was thinking of Curtise's inspiration when I read it.
    It's great to get new style ideas isn't it? It's invigorating!
    Oh by the way, you look great. But you knew that already didn't you?!

  3. I always loved seeing shorts worn with tights...It is the perfect way to wear them once the temperatures dropped down. I will never understand women who go bare legged in Winter or when it is cold...they must be brave! Where I live the winters are pretty mild but I still wear tons of layers...but when I see ladies in NY or London wearing mini skirt and sandals while it is snowing...I don't know how they can stand it.

    Anyway, you look amazingly beautiful...as usual. Very stylish combo...and great accessories.

  4. Thanks for the mention, Olga! You rock the shorts and tights combinations with your mile-long legs, and the warm colours of the sweater and scarf are so pretty. Lovely! xxx

  5. Great 1970s vibe here, Olga! Curtise is such an inspiration! xxx

  6. Yes, this is a winning combination! I love the chunky shoes, playful scarf and floppy hat with that long-legged look. Gorgeous.

  7. Love this look on you Olga - stylish yet casual. Lots of touches that work just as Melanie has said above!


  8. Oh that kitty scarf is so sweet! What a great find. And you are very cute in your hat. The maroon and black is perfect for you and the boots are super cool. And for you especially, yes to short shorts, the shorter the better :) Seeing so much of your beautiful legs in those tights and even the toes was so amazing for me, such a gift! Toes in tights are so sexy :) Enjoyed these very much dear, fantastic pleasure! I really appreciate you sharing them and thanks also so much for the sweet birthday greetings. You certainly helped me end my birthday in a magical way :) xoxo

  10. So cute! :) I've always liked wearing shorts with tights :)


  11. I have worn shorts with tights before for cold weather but it has been far too long. I plan on doing it again this Holiday season. You look fun and fierce. Love the platform shoes and the floppy hat, Olga.

    Happy Monday!!

  12. Olga, with your gorgeous legs the shorts and tights look is stunning. Great boots , jumper and scarf complete the look.

  13. I am not a fan of shorts either, but, believe me, they are gorgeous on you!!

  14. I don't think I've worn shorts in the past 40 years! Always prefered a short skirt to shorts. But your shorts are the perfect length and look quite fetching with tights,lug-soled platform shoes and colorful top. Hmm, I'll have to give shorts a re-think now!

  15. lovely outfit! love those tights/sweater!

  16. Olga, you look incredibly chic! Beyond words!

  17. hey I love your shoes

  18. You have beautiful legs, so you can wear any shorts you like. Shorts over tights is a more dressy look and warmer too. Fabulous hat!

    Merry Christmas!

  20. This is just so nice post on Shorts over tights. I am really in love with these looks. I really love shorts but nowadays the winter has started so for the morning jogs it is not possible to wear them. I have just placed the order for the warm Alo Yoga tights and the sweat shirts that are s beautiful and I am eagerly waiting for the delivery of products.
