I found these red plaid shorts at the thrift store awhile back. Even though I thought they were incredibly nerdy, they were my size, so I bought them. They're high-waisted, which seems to be coming back in style right now. Plus, they're kind of on the baggy side, so they flare out more like a skirt.
I thought they might be fun to wear with some black leggings and black boots — or something punkish like that. When I decide what to wear with them, I will try to snap a better photograph.
