As far as trends go, leather shorts is one of this year’s surprising breakout stars. I’ve always been slightly wary of black leather skirts and shorts (there’s a fine line between seriously cool and flat-out dominatrix), but style blogger Kaitlin Isabella of Buffalo Stance makes her faux leather shorts look simultaneously edgy and chic by pairing them with an elegant button-down, fringed clogs, and floppy vintage hat.
What’s your stance on leather pants?
blogger of the moment, style bloggers
No to leather shorts. Shorts are supposed to provide comfort in the heat, and I just cannot image black leather providing any sort of cooling effect at all.
However, I am not particularly against full length leather pants. I think they provide a very dramatic look when worn properly, and a distracting eyesore when worn wrong.
I saw this look on weardrobe, and it is total perfection. I think leather pants/shorts can be done, but you have to have the right attitude and confidence.
Barely pull-off-able. I would go for it with maybe an untucked slouchy shirt. Belted draws a little too much attention IMO. It’s a fun trend if you’re really looking for a fun trend.
Man, I don’t care one way or another about it looking dominatrix-y. No way would leather shorts be the least bit comfortable in shorts weather! Plus it would just make things… ugh… sweaty.
i think it’s the perfect seasonal transition piece & really edges out a casual outfit. when worn with opaque tights, i find them more comfortable than skirts. they definitely shouldn’t be any shorter than the blogger above though. NO ONE wants to see leather booty shorts!
I noticed this trend when I was looking through the most recent Free People catalog. They don’t look very comfy!
Disregarding all matters of practicality, I am really digging that look…
I’m too busy drooling over those fringed clogs to notice the leather shorts.
I love the look here, but too often, it goes wrong. And can we say uncomfortable?
i had a pair of leather shorts about 2 years ago but, i gave it away to my sister who really wanted them badly, so being a good little sister i obeyed….*sigh*…..i still regret that.
that’s an adorable look, and it’s hard to look “adorable” with leather!
She definitely pulls it off ~ love it!
I love leather shorts
love it love it!!!
As long as it’s faux leather, I’m cool with it
I think leather shorts are a big no no. Your undies area would over heat and your legs would freeze. Leather full length pants can work if the temperature is cool enough, but the shorts…no.
Being an animal lover, leather is always a no for me.
All kinds of no.
um, I don’t know, I have mixed feelings about this….I sort of love it.
um WOW. this look is so HOT. i need it now!!
