Today I have on my black knee high sock boots.

MadameCastafiore Tue 23-Sep-08 16:06:11

Next Long Brown Sticth Workmans boots for jeans and chunky stuff.

Boden knee high black leather for other things and when I don't have browny neutral colours on.

DrNortherner Tue 23-Sep-08 16:49:32

I wouldn't wera boots with shorts.

'Lady of the night' springs to mind........

DrNortherner Tue 23-Sep-08 16:50:09

Do you mean knee length city shorts or hot pant show my arse shorts?

I bought a pair of MNG ones from a charity shop today, for a fiver.

I guess they look a bit like the ones pictured top right in the catwalk queen item that onceinalifetime linked to - but brown tweedy herringboney fabric

so what do I wear 'em with?

DrNortherner - hot pant show my arse shorts, please! isn't this topic board supposed to be about style, LOL

i wear my ugg boots or chunky biker ones with tights and shorts

Aefondkiss Tue 23-Sep-08 17:16:44

I like the idea of winter shorts, I could cycle to school in them and wear them with tights and boots - oh they are appealing to my practical sidegrin I like the cheapest pair in your link.

I can't get away with summer shorts, let alone winter ones.

lou33 Tue 23-Sep-08 17:22:45

i dont wear shorts, but i wear short skirts

i am currently wearing a grey chunky knit cowl neck mini dress with thick dark grey tights and a pair of black cardy uggs

i have black biker boots, as well as some brown higher chunky heeled boots and a pair black stiletto ones, but tend to keep short skirts with flats

which reminds me i am on the look out for some grey knee/thigh length flat boots, has anyone seen some which are affordable for the v poor , and look half decent?

okay. Check it out

This is from page 26 of the supplement that comes with the current issue (October) of Vogue

"Liberate your legs! Tailored shorts have become a winter wardrobe essential. Pair with ribbed cashmere tights and thigh-high suede boots."

£126 what???!!!

docket Tue 23-Sep-08 17:55:51

They are nice, not as 'short' as the name implies. But not at £126. I'd wear them with flats for fear of looking overdone

NotQuiteCockney Tue 23-Sep-08 17:57:29

Winter shorts are up there with summer anoraks and winter flip-flops in my 'must have' list.

yeah, they're not dissimilar to the ones I bought. Wouldn't wear with the shoes they suggest though. I'm thinking maybe chunky knee-high boots.
