Is there a difference?

The shorts and a jacket/long sleeves applies to my self as well.
The rationale is probably that while longer sleeves can be rolled up, if hot, it's easier to wear short sleeve. Sleeves don't always stay in place with the amount of movement and material. One can always put on a jacket or sweatshirt over short sleeve when necessary. Jeans can be rolled up–if even a couple inches, depending on the style (bootcut can be rolled further), and rolled back down in cooler weather. You can't really do anything with shorts if it gets colder.

I suppose it varies by location, but I'm in an area where layering matters. It can be warm during the day but very cool at night, especially in Spring and late Summer/early Fall. These ways seem more practical.

Do they produce leg coverings for this, so that you can wear shorts in the afternoon but slip some material on when it gets cold.

leg coverings? i dont think so. Although im pretty sure you can keep a change of clothes in your car or backpack and utilize a restroom somewhere.

Most of all, I HATE, HATE, HATE hip-hugger pants! I didn't like them so much in the 60's, either, but at least you didn't see nearly the muffin-tops that the New Millennium brought us.

Hate rear pockets in pants. On men, fine (maybe because it's a necessity for them).

Ruffles. Didn't like them in the 60's, either.

Heavy shoulder pads (don't mind smaller ones, though).

Whale's tails.. another curse from hip-huggers.

Spike heels any higher than 3/4 inches. It's too rare to see a woman in the super-tall stilettos who doesn't walk awkward in them.

Clunky-looking Doc Martin-type boots with dresses ~ the kind that really belong with pants.

I suppose one could wear tights like Pippi Longstocking...but that only works for school-aged girls under 10.

now i actually prefer hip huggers/low rise pants. Much more preferable than those high rise fasten at your ribcage pants theyre trying to push on us now.

As for ruffles, they actually do compliment certain body shapes.
