Just because they’re called “shorts” doesn’t mean you can’t squeeze more mileage out of them throughout the year. Take those cutoffs you’ve been rockin’ all summer into the nippier months with these six simple how-tos. Our guinea pig of choice? A pair of fully lined wool flannel shorts from Hinge, available for $48 at Nordstrom. Whether you tag-team them with equestrian vegan boots, a pre-loved Ralph Lauren blazer, or sweatshop-free colored tights, your shorts will soon become the hardest-working member of your wardrobe, no matter what the weatherman says.

BOOT UP

Regardless of how sexy your shorts are, shivering like a a bowl of Jell-o is anything but. Couple those Daisy Dukes with these equestrian Neuaura vegan boots. For an extra layer of warmth, slip on a pair of cozy over-the-knee socks, such as Dream Stockings’ Chevrons, which are made in the United States from recycled cotton.

SHAKE YOUR BOOTIE

Tights may be functional, but who says they can’t be fun, too? Use the cooler weather as an excuse to add an extra pop of color to your outfit. Layer those cropped pants over brightly-hued stockings by American Apparel and keep the whole ensemble grounded with some pre-loved booties.
