– Black leather shorts have fast become a cool-girl essential, perfect for punctuating any wardrobe with a dose of tough. (Net-A-Porter)

The upcoming Fall trends are bursting with multicolored print patterns, various textures and reinvented designs. I believe that it is about time to start thinking of a new season’s wardrobe update. I have found so many different ideas and new styles that some of you may consider wearing as well…

This time I want to talk about the new alternative to pants: leather shorts! A real statement piece that captures a cool spirit and a rebellious style. I believe that it is such a versatile and edgy piece which could be mixed and paired with a lot of different things. Think plain white or grey tees, knit cropped sweaters, cardigans, tuxedo style blazers and black turtlenecks. Depending on your personal style and preference, it is up to you how you will wear your shorts. The only thing I would suggest is wearing your leather shorts with black opaque or sheer tights. (For the brave fashionistas, I can also recommend wearing leather shorts with knee high tights).

The key element to wearing this trend is to avoid anything too provocative or sexy. It is about a neat-fitted “pulled-together” look. Try to keep the rest of your outfit simple and glossy.

Faux leather shorts can also be a good option. It is lighter and not as pricey. I found a great pair of faux leather cuffed shorts from the recent Dynamite fall collection. They fit very well and create an illusion of never-ending legs. I love the beautiful combination of two different textures. The light knit sweater and the edgy black shorts. Wear it with a knockout pair of high heels and you’re ready to turn heads!
