Opinions on these shorts?

I've ordered these shorts from river Island for a night out. Not sure if I will wear with black tights or brave bare legs! I fall between a 10 and 12 in pants so I've ordered the larger for comforts sake. It's a bit different to what I normally wear. What do you think? Nice or no?

Sorry, link!

I think nice!

I also think nice, am even tempted myself but have a self endorsed ban on shopping until whenever i'm not so utterly skint Summer. What top will you wear them with?

Much thanks! Hopefully they fit OK when they arrive! Always worry about having a funny looking arse in shorts! grin

Lovely - wish I was 30 years younger & had the legs for shorts Sceptical: hmm

I'm not sure. I have a black fitted top with sparkly neckline, I have a neon pink blouse that maybe might work tucked in, though not sure if the colour will work, have a blue silk top that might look nice too! It looks like a versatile pattern I think?

I would have worn those at your age. I have a summer skirt not to dissimilar to those shorts, although it is a little longer. I doubt that I would have worn them in February though.

I know shorts seem a bit summery but I think they have enough dark shades in them to get away with it. May also end up wearing them with black tights and ankle boots if I'm too cold!

Lovely print. I think they would look gorgeous with a black silk cami, and a blazer.

bigeegit Mon 02-Feb-15 19:34:26

Aww, thanks all! Cami and blazer sounds lovely! I will have to see what I can rustle up, no more shopping for me for a wee bit!

They're lovely!

Greengardenpixie Mon 02-Feb-15 22:22:11

Sorry but i dont like them. The print is nice but i dont like the ovelap bits. Look like wings! I think they look odd.

bigeegit Mon 02-Feb-15 22:49:17

Ha, yea the flaps are different, it's technically a skort. Hopefully it won't look too weird in real life smile

I really like the print but green might be right about the flaps ....

Silverjohnleggedit Tue 03-Feb-15 09:30:31

If you have great legs then go for it....

Another "like" from me. I have skort which I think looks good - like a mini skirt from the front but shorts at the back.

Would deffo wear with tights this time of year (Unless of course you are incredibly hardy and with tanned legs.)
