There are a couple of reasons why someone might wear shorts underneath their pants:

1. No clean underwear (using regular shorts as a substitute for boxers for example)

2. Preparing for physical activity such as playing soccer, by wearing shorts underneath pants rather than getting changed at the venue (especially if there are no changing facilities.

3. Extra warmth

4. Unsure about what the weather was going to be like.

5. No space in suitcase or when travelling  (especially if luggage weight exceeds airline baggage allowance)

Bonus point for swimming shorts: Impromptu pool party

I used to wear shorts under my skirt when I was little, just to make sure my undergarments will not be exposed whenever I stumble or move a little too much or be like Marilyn Monroe when the wind blows. But as I get old I think the more I don't want to wear anything under hahaha! Trust me, you know grandma does it!
