Daily Covet: Trina Turk Velvet Shorts

Shorts were a staple in my fifth grade fall wardrobe.  I had tweed versions, wool flannel versions, corduroy versions.  I wore them with button down oxfords and argyle sweater vests.

A few seasons ago, cold-weather shorts came back.  Shorts in sequins.  Shorts in satin.  Shorts in leather.  And now these gorgeous shorts in rich, merlot-colored velvet.

I’ve been a fan of Trina Turk for a long time, and love the L.A. brand for it’s signature funky prints.

But these lucious velvet shorts make me think “twist” on the usual holiday dressing.  I love how they are shown here with a feminine blouse and dressy cardigan, but I can also see them dressed down with a chunky cowl-neck sweater and fun flats.

These are oh so irresistable!
