How to Wear Leather Shorts

On Phoebe: Helmut Lang blazer, A.L.C. top, Marc by Marc Jacobs necklace, Theyskens’ Theory shorts, Alexander Wang pumps. On Karina: A.L.C top, Theyskens’ Theory shorts, 3.1 Phillip Lim pumps.

The rich textures of fall are slowing seeping into our wardrobe rotations here at Shopbop. Leather is a seasonal favorite, so we asked two of our lovely stylists to create looks for each other anchored in black leather Theyskens’ Theory shorts.

Karina on Phoebe:
“I love the way a pop of black leather adds edge, balancing out an ultra-feminine look. The give a ladylike blush A.L.C. top with a preppy Marc by Marc Jacobs collar necklace a modern, fresh twist. Now, I know showing a lot of leg can be intimidating, but a flattering, pointed-toe pump will keep you feeling confident.”

Phoebe on Karina:
“Leather shorts can look tough, so I thought this feminine paisley A.L.C. top would be a great counter, especially when the shorts are worn in a boyish, uncuffed way. Graphic 3.1 Phillip Lim pumps bring out the tones in the shirt and shorts, and a structured blush clutch adds just a hint of color.”
