Ok, leather shorts. Give me your first thoughts... GO!
Have I mentioned my super powers? I can totally read your mind right now. Leather shorts = bad taste, terribly unflattering, too nightclub-ish or just...ewwww. I mean shorts are always a bit of a sore spot for us girls. Until now.
Friends, these beauties can heat up a summer wardrobe and march you right into the cooler months regardless of your size, age, or shape. In winter, keep your street style fresh by adding tights, booties and a big cozy sweater. For the warmer months (i.e. now) grab an open toe bootie and moto vest like I did above. In case you haven't noticed, pearls are having a major moment right now. The "twisted necklace" from iSanctuary meshes the timeless appeal of pearls with a twist of modern metal.
At the risk of sounding like a broken record.....FIT IS EVERYTHING!!! Fit is the difference between appropriate and tasteless. Fit can take the look from ugh to love; from cheap to chic. Even if you lean more classy and conservative, you can still pull off a pair of leather shorts! How? Go with a tad longer hem (like mine above), beautiful heels, and a silk blouse. Add a pair of killer earrings and, boom. You've nailed the look!
