GetFreshTips: Go Shorty

The leather short to some is seen as a fashion oxymoron, sorta like a suede rainbboot would be. It's a piece that begs the question, how do I rock this? Is it a trend only regulated to runways and editorials? Or can it be Incorporated into my fall lineup? The answer is Yes! The key to working this look is all in the fit. You want a loose fit and a respectable length (no booty shorts please!), it gives it a vintage vibe. Tights are a girls best friend with this look Solid black or nude colored ones are basic chic, while a fishnet version makes a sexy statement. Here are two versions that I found for under $200.
Oh my hauteness!

This Leather Tab Short by Topshop features a slight cuff at the hem and are the perfect length. A loose fitting silk blouse and a pair of cute booties look haute with this short, giving it a much more expensive vibe.
Retail $136

The Sparkle and Fade Leather Short by Urban Outfitters features a pleated front and a slightly higher waist. This version can be done more sporty with a body suit, denim jacket and a clean pair of chucks.
Retail $126
