lovely leather

shorts_7When deciding whether or not to invest in a piece, especially a trendy one, I follow a 3-way rule.  If I can quickly configure 3 different ways to wear, it’s coming home with me.  Leather, known as faux leather for my budget, is definitely a current must have and honestly I do not know why we do not wear it all the time.  My recent faux leather shorts purchase has not only risen above my 3-way rule but they are as comfortable as denim with a lot more va-va-voom.  Going weekend casual chic or from work to cocktails with the girls could not be easier.shorts1 Forever 21 double-zip shorts (I’m wearing) | 2 Topshop side zip shorts | 3 Topshop shorts | 4 Free People vegan leather shorts6ways|WEARING| Forever 21 double-zip shorts/tights similar | 1 H&M relaxed sweater/olive bootie similar | 2 cropped jean jacket similar/stripe top similar/navy hat similar/Target flats | 3 colorblock tunic sweater similar/side zip bootie similar | 4 light pink blazer similar/H&M button up/Guess heels | 5 black tuxedo blazer similar/gold sequin top similar/black and gold circle bracelet similar/ZiGiny pewter pump | 6 silk top similar/cutout booties similar

If shorts are not your cup of tea then you must give leather pants a try.  There are some fantastic options out there with the same versatility if not more than their shorter counterpart.  Your stack of jeans are begging for a new friend anyway…leatherpants1 ASOS skinny pant with panels | 2 Free People vegan leather seemed pants | 3 Forever 21 zippered faux leather | 4 Tripp NYC pleather pant

  1. Love your new blog! You should do a photo shoot in CAbi clothes. They are trendy, chic and would look awesome on you. Check them out at http://www.cabicanary.com. Plus, they are available in VW (for your hometown fans) from Teresa Schalois.

  2. I just bought a pair of leather (fake leather…lol) shorts and I love them! Just have to find the rihgt pair of tights to put under them, I think mine are too dark. Thanks for this post, Brandy!
