This might be one of the sharper edges of fashion that we bring you, but we promise, leather shorts are less impractical than they may seem. Paired with demure shoes and a floral blouse, the look, while quite trendy, is stylish, and an appropriate transition into cooler weather.
As is too often the case with particular items at the forefront of trend wave, the leather shorts out there can be impressive-looking yet rather pricey:
However, if those aren’t calling out to you, knockoff fave Forever 21 is already on top of things with a faux leather pair of shorts that retails for $23.
If you’d rather wait for this trend to draw a little farther back from the edge before testing it out, we’d recommend easing into the look with a solid pair of dark denim shorts. These from Ann Taylor LOFT ($25 from $39.50) will also look lovely with the aforementioned floral blouse.
