Hi Maraschino,
Try Oasis...they have really nice short shorts in woolen fabric in black or grey. They are smart, in a warm fabric but short. I think they look great - I want to buy a pair.

i wear this even in -6 degrees celsius without problems, just with 2 tights of 100% wool and a pair of thick black opaque tights over--and maybe wool socks in my boots if it gets even colder

my favourite ones are from Zara, green wool shorts (got them in july though so not sure if they still have them but you should check).
I also saw a great pair of Johnson shorts

It's a cute look, but I'm definitely more concerned with staying warm and toasty in this cold weather. The tights-and-shorts look would definitely be suitable for, say, fall though.

Cute look.. though my definition of short shorts is something... way shorter. Haha.

I think it's a good fall or spring look.. but it's -30c here in the winter.. or colder! Maybe for more temperate places... like Cali or Florida or something.

I think the idea of wearing short in winter is stupid. I live in a place wear it doesn't get very cold, but it still makes the girls look dumb and like she's in need of attention to surrender comfort and warmth for the sake of being trendy.

I think it's fine. I see girl's in nyc wearing mini skirts with tights and leg warmers. With shorts, atleast you won't catch an up wind. LOL
I wear my fave denim shorts by siwy. They are from spring, but they aren't short short. They are a little longer than normal, and fitted. The color is not indigo, but a lighter blue. I wear it with black tights, a long black tee and a chunky gray or pink sweater by twinkle. It looks cute on some girl's that work at this store, who wear it with boots that go around the ankle. I don't think I am leggy enough, so I just wear it with tall boots.
It's warm! Especially with a long jacket.
I think it's totally fine..
and much warmer than even a long skirt.

I love this look too. We never get particularly warm weather here, even in "summer" so I pretty much always pair some type of tights with my extensive shorts shorts collection! Love that chloe pic with the teal blue tights
