Winter Shorts Worth Braving the Cold For

Remember when you would have scoffed at the idea of wearing purple pants? Or fuzzy shearling boots? Or a necklace with a menacing octopus charm? Well, even if you never thought this day would come, it has—winter shorts are a thing now. Hear us out—winter shorts are really not much different from wearing a dress in the winter. You pick the least-terrible weather day, toss on a pair of opaque tights, and then secretly relish all the compliments from friends and co-workers who are schlubbing around in sweatpants and wooly sweaters. Winter shorts are not for the fashionably faint of heart. But they are so worth it.
