She styled her black Levi's vintage high waisted cuffed shorts with a brown cropped vegan "leather" jacket, American Apparel oversized cranberry t-shirt, and Dr. Martens gunmetal gray. Since then, Rocker Shorts have grown in popularity as bloggers from Los Angeles, Manila, and Philippines have discovered them.
