Fashion girls say falling temperatures aren’t a reason to retire short hemlines. There are multiple ways and means to still show off your pins sans tights, whilst staying protected from the elements. Here are five ways to keep your minis in your repertoire a little longer…

Embrace The Tweed Trend

It may be time to pack up floaty cotton shorts, but the resurgence of the tweed trend makes it easier than ever to stay warm whilst showing off your legs. Add mismatched blazers for an extra layer, then team with vintage tees and trainers to avoid an overly twee look.
