I’ve been wanting, searching, and longing for a pair of leather shorts this fall. Sadly, some are more appropriate for a college rave ….not so appropriate for a woman in her ((ahem)), 30’s.
Last week, I scored a pair of leather Tibi shorts for 1/2 of retail. Still expensive, but I can see them being a true investment piece. What drew me to these particular shorts is the fact that they’re an appropriate length, cuffed, & have pleats. I feel I can pull off leather shorts that look dressier versus flat front short-shorts.
So I have the shorts in my grimy little hands…..how do I style them and not look like Hoochie Hoocheta? For me, the key is to wear tights, especially for daytime, and I’ll probably try a sheerer black hose for night (yeah, the 90’s semi-sheer hose are back!) My other thought is to make sure I wear a more conservative or relaxed top or sweater with the shorts.
Here’s a few ways I’ve worn my new shorts. Yep, I wore them 2 days in a row. You betta believe this girl is gonna get her money’s worth.

Love this look! I bought this shell pink cardigan when I went to Memphis.
I love the softness and femininity of the pink ruffles combined with the leather shorts. As in interior design, fashion is all about having contrast, yet balance, right?
Will you fashionistas be trying leather shorts for fall?
