4 Ways To Wear Leather Shorts

Its no secret that leather shorts have been trending for quite a while now, so I figured it would be an awesome idea to showcase 4 different ways you could style your leather shorts.

                                                                     * Leather Shorts- Factorie *

Flirty Feminine

Pairing a buttoned up lace shirt creates a great feminine and sexy look. Lace just has the ability to make you feel sexy and confident. This look is perfect for a lunch date or an event. A loose blouse has the same effect so it would be a great alternative if you feel a full on lace shirt is just not your thing.

Casual Cool

Leather shorts are a perfect piece for those laid back casual days when you are running errands, attending lectures or doing last minute shopping. This is a practical and easy-to-go look that you can throw on quickly,without looking sloppy and untidy. Add a statement piece to this chilled out look such as a printed T-shirt, chunky arm accessories or bold animal print pumps.

You having a girls night out this Saturday with your besties? Or you have an evening event that you are attending? This look is perfect for those occasions. Adding a loose low cut blouse and a bold blazer transforms your leather shorts into the perfect smart casual item. Opting for an oversized boyfriend blazer would be a great alternative.

Sports Luxe

The sports luxe trend is a very popular way to style your leather shorts. I dont usually gravitate towards sporty trends, but I am so obsessed with the sports luxe trend because its a combination of sporty and chic. So even if you're not a sporty girl like me, you will not stray too far away from your usual chic style with this trend because you will be able to find items that best suit your style.

                                                                    Top- Cotton On

                                                                     Loafers- Lacoste

Leather X Faux Sheepskin

I recently got a bigger wardrobe so I have been transferring my clothes from my old wardrobe to my new, bigger one and colour coordinating my clothes. I was flabbergasted at the amount of faux leather items I own. A couple faux leather jackets, faux leather pants, faux leather mini skirts,faux leather pencil skirt, faux leather dress and a pair of faux leather sporty shorts that I just purchased today. *hides*. My obsession with leather is seriously getting out of hand, I don't see it being a bad thing though because leather is timeless and adds such an edge to your overall look.

This faux sheepskin throw is the first faux animal skin item I have purchased and actually fallen in love with. I am not a fan of faux furs because I have a bad case of sinus and I have seen one,two many girls literally fighting off the fur off their lipgloss (disgusting argh). Besides these con's, faux fur can really take your look from plain and simple to Showstopper! This faux sheepskin feels amazing. Its soft and so cosy, perfect for those nippy afternoons. I love how the throw over adds a pop of brightness to the all black look as well.

Do share your thoughts on this post, it would be greatly appreciated :-)

Stripes X Polka Dot

I believe that one should always take risks when it comes to fashion and style. I mean, life's way too short to remain in our comfort zone, don't you think?. Lately, I have been feeling that way too many of us are too concerned about what people say and think of us. We shy away from certain fashion trends and styles because the first thing we think about is "What would people think about me wearing this?". Fashion is fun and shouldn't be taken so seriously. It is a tool to express ourselves in unique ways, we should embrace it to the fullest.

With that being said, I absolutely love the concept of mixing different prints together. It is such a bold look and would definitely make you stand out in the crowd. I had a lot of fun mixing different prints together, seeing what worked- what didn't. I must admit, this trend has the ability to go wrong very easily, so you have to make sure that you pair prints that are appealing to the eye and do not look like you just threw those items together without putting much thought into it.

Remember Ladies: Be Bold. You Were Born To Stand Out, Not Fit In.
