Whether it was her stylish bob or shabby chic boyfriend jeans, Katie Holmes has certainly been one of this year’s biggest stylesetters. The film and Broadway star is always a showstopper in classic pieces but isn’t afraid to go for a bit more edge sometimes, like when she stepped out in denim shorts with tights recently. But this unexpected winter ensemble, paired with a coat, scarf and slouchy boots may not work on everyone. The editors at StyleWatch want to know what you think. Tell us: Would you wear shorts with tights?

I think she looks great. She wears her new style with confidence. Also I admire the fact that her choices are quite unique. She is not imitating Posh or anyone else.

She does look cool, WAY better in this look than Lilly Allen or Kate Moss.I’m glad Posh is no longer playing “fashion stylist” with her, she dressing he age.

I’ve done tights with shorts before, but I do it a little more casual, like with my black cowboy boots, a black cardigan and an across-the-body bag.

Bet on

I love her style. She has a cool sense of style. She looks fabulious here.

The whole point of wearing shorts is so your legs can be partially exposed. If you wear tights with them, you might as well wear pants. It defies the whole purpose of shorts.

I would, it’s no different than wearing a skirt with tights.

Ugh i hate that look. Shorts and tights look retarded when the weathers cold.

Fu on

Denim shorts/mini skirts with tights can be seen everywhere in Tokyo.
