They're an absolute wardrobe staple this fall and will certainly still rock our outfits this winter. Seen on Chloe's catwalk last season, leather shorts have made a surprising come back. Forget what they were usually associated with (fetishism, mostly), and embrace the new style they enhance! They're edgy, rock'n'roll, worn with sky high boots and power shoulders jacket, or they can be associated to a camel total look! Check our members for inspiration!

"I love to wear this trend because it's very versatile, it´s one of the basics in my closet in shorts, jackets, bags... leather is everywhere! My favourite choice is: leather with a shirt that brings sweetness to the look."

"I bought these leathers shorts in Berlin two summers ago. Big crush, I love how they can add a rock and trendy touch to any outfit. Here, I really like the contrast they make with the romantic blouse."

"I was looking for leather shorts for a really long time. I actually wanted real leather ones but I couldn't find them. Then I saw these at 'New Yorker' for a very nice price, they have the perfect fit. I could wear them every day if necessary, I can mix them with almost everything. I can create so many looks and styles, for so many different occasions, I love it! The top I'm wearing is actually a dress. I really like it worn this way, it looks a bit like I'm wearing a body because of the fit."

"I made these shorts in August, and have actually been wearing them a lot - but I just realized I've never shown them to my online friends before. That's so weird! This is my first successful DIY-project, I think - or rather, the biggest one I've done. Sure, I make small changes to hem-lines, cut of stuff and add some personal touches to a lot of things - but this DIY-thingy actually involved tools and some planning. I'm quite happy with the result as well; and it just cost me $7!"

"What can I say? Every girl needs a pair of vintage leather shorts! And the great thing is that leather shorts are one of the signature pieces in any vintage store. I got these ones in Retro City in Madrid, and there was a great selection to choose from. I added a heart printed cardigan to give it a bit more colour and to make the outfit a little bit softer considering black leather usualy adds a bit of a 'dominatrix' touch, which I love, but I was feeling a litlle bit girly that day..."

"The leather shorts is a key piece in my fall wardrobe this year because of its versatility and edginess. All sorts of colors are possible for this trend but my favorites are the black and camel ones. I still need to find the perfect black one but this camel leather shorts will do great! It was a match made in heaven when I saw it hanging in a vintage store. "

"I love these shorts, the leather is so soft! To create a contrast, I added this ruffle-shoulders cardigan. It's a little touch of sweetness!"

"Leather = fall to me. Since I live in the tropics all year long it's hard to wear leather without the sweat, so when I saw these leather shorts, I didn't think twice I just paid for them. So I guess by having some leather pieces in my outfit, I have more "fall/winter" mood in the midst of the heat.
I tried playing around with texture in this look. With fall's trendy knits, the leather shorts of course, some chiffon on the shoes, and a canvas + leather trimmed bag."
