Shorts (BDG 5-Pocket Short from Urban Outfitters, $29.00) are a year-round thing. Keep the look fall-appropriate by adding tights (MUK LUKS - Microfiber Tights from Wal*Mart, $13.87) so your legs don't feel the chill. If you want a funky look, opt for printed, geometric, or colorful tights to add some flair to your look.
