After seeing Aimee Song’s blog post featuring her brown leather H&M shorts, I immediately ran to Forever 21 and purchased the most amazing pair of black leather high-waisted shorts. A perfect way to add some edge to whatever you’re sporting on top, leather shorts are easy, comfortable and incredibly chic. You might be thinking, “Why would I wear shorts in the cold, fall weather?” There are some very simple solutions to this question!
First option: tights. I, personally, have never been a tights kind of person, but when it comes to leather shorts in the New York City autumn weather, tights are my best friend. Now, when I say tights I don’t mean just normal nude tights. Get creative with it! Black, striped or any other pattern you can think of! Since many pairs of leather shorts are just plain black, dressing up your wardrobe through your tights can do wonders.
Second option: a long coat. Just so that your legs don’t freeze, wearing a longer coat that can cover up some or all of your legs can also make you so much more comfortable. A fall colored jacket (i.e. maroon, mustard or auburn) would be perfect to throw over your shoulders and would look awesome with some different textured leather shorts.
My advice? Don’t be afraid to rock leather shorts at ANY time of the year. Leather equals warmth, so remember that when you’re out shopping this month! Also, do as this Fashionista did and rock your leather shorts with a grungy tank and a snap back for the ultimate look!
