Another unfortunate fashion trend is popping up this season, the shorts and tights trend that saw some favor in the 1980s and 1990s but this time around it’s trashier and has a grungy feel.

In the past the shorts with tights trend was mainly about looking dressed up and semi-professional with dressy shorts and tights that matched and a modest heel. This era also saw shorts and long underwear , a similar look with a different bent, take center stage as grunge took the country by storm. These versions of shorts and tights were acceptable and had some valid reasons for their existence.

The current shorts and tights trend appears to just have dirty, trampy and trashy as the reason for its resurgence. The shorts are super short and often tight, denim, and/or ripped and the tights  range from a simple black to lacey patterned tights. Paired with these two items you’ll often see a pair of high heels, taking the look from trashy to porn star.

And the strangest part about this new fashion trend is that it’s popping up in the fall/winter season. I guess by pulling on a pair of tights is supposed to make wearing shorts in the winter acceptable. I say skip this trend altogether and wait for the next one to come along.
