New Fall Addition: Leather Shorts

In Fashion on September 22, 2010 at 2:09 pm

Leather shorts come in many shades and styles for Fall 2010

This Fall one of the hottest trends is the leather short. Whether you wear it with a cashmere cardigan, your favorite plain white tee, or pair them with a fitted blazer, the leather short is a very versatile piece to add to your Fall wardrobe collection.

The leather short makes for a stylishly edgy look for Fall, especially when paired with hot over the knee boots. You can also get a “rock and roll” edgy attitude with high waisted leather shorts and a vintage inspired tee.  Add some essential costume jewelry and get ready for a night on the town.

Chunky sweaters for added texture

And don’t worry, during winter these shorts can still keep you warm if worn with basic or patterned tights. And with October right around the corner, you can add more deep, dramatic shades and a contrast of textures to your wardrobe, including a basic thermal or chunky sweater.

My Alessia leather shorts from Club Monaco

These shorts aren’t so easy to come by so if you find a pair at a retailer that you love, take advantage. For example, the Alessia leather shorts from Club Monaco are one of my favorites! Paired with a fitted blouse and platform pumps, you’ll have the perfect look for a cocktail party or an evening out.

And you can also visit chic and cheap online stores like Asos where they feature a large selection of leather shorts like these TBA High waisted pleated leather shorts in tan.

Cheap Monday Samantha leather shorts

Also a big hit for fall are these Cheap Monday Samantha leather shorts in black for around $90 dollars. You can rock these for an edgy look with tall thigh high boots or thick tights and booties. Both of these looks you can find at shopstyle.com.

Add some leather to your wardrobe this season. And don’t be scared to spend a little more for what some designers say is an “investment piece”. You can get a rocker chic look and still feel casual. Pair thick wool tights or wear them bare-legged. Whatever look you pull off, one thing is certain, leather shorts should be a key staple in your closet this fall.
