how to wear: leather shorts

Leather shorts are still in style and likely here to stay. Despite the cold being just around the corner, you can still wear a pair of shorts into the new season.

Leather shorts can be worn during the day or night, but as fall sets in it will be more difficult to wear them dark without some tights or long socks. Take your shorts from shopping to cocktails with a coat and some heeled ankle boots.

Aussie fashion blogger Spin Dizzy Fall gets the look down with some over-the-knee boots and brightly-colored statement socks.

For an edgier look, go the all-leather, rock chick route, broken up by a chunky knit scarf.

Shorts highlight your legs, so it’s best to keep your tops baggy or light, nothing too form-fitting. Keep it current by pairing with some of the season’s hottest accessories.
