I would wear a boxy laced top, ripped tights, combat boots, and a pork pie hat.posted about 2 years ago
i have some and i really like wearing them with black tights underneath, flats, and usually a sweater on top, maybe a plaid button-up underneath. if you have a knit pullover sweater in a color, that would be a good way to incorporate more color. generally with them, i try not to wear something else that’s faux-leather or leather because it feels like too much. i used them for a sweater i’m selling on my shop you can see it here. i just like the different ways you can mess around with texture with these shorts. an all black outfit would even be interesting.posted about 2 years ago
It would be nice to layer this with textured wine red tights, a nice loose polo with a necklace inserted on the collar, and a cardigan over the polo. I’d wear this look with oxfords.
I think it’s also cute to wear this with patterned tights!posted about 2 years ago
I like both of your ideas, and I am SO FREAKING JEALOUS…. I am dying for a pair of black leather shorts.
When I finally get mine, I’m planning a couple of different outfits: with black tights, flat oxfords and a white button down; and with black tights, flat oxfords, a vintage band tee and an oversize red flannel button down.
Good luck – make sure you post pictures for us!posted about 2 years ago
Faux leather shorts are great to create an edgy, but girly look! Try wearing a black polka dot printed top, sheer black tights, and black wedge boots. Or a white drape neck knit top, blue blazer, and patterned tights.posted about 2 years ago
i would style this with ……..
yellow or white sheer shirt
burgandy loafers with gold buckle on front
gold necklace but not too big
and a random turquoise ring to stand out
(maybe even a cropped blazer for a formal do)

Amazing. I love love love love faux leather shorts but if I was you I would lose the thights, it will be too muchposted about 2 years ago
Yay for you! I love my faux leather shorts and I know you will too. :) Depending on the look you’re going for, you can toughen up the leather with a rocker look, or make it girly. Dressing for spring, I might wear them with a hot pink blazer, white tee and black wedge booties. Or maybe a sheer floral blouse, big sunglasses, and some strappy wedges.posted about 2 years ago
Maybe keep the tights simple? Since faux leather shorts are quite bold look.
Jealous though, I’ve been looking for a pair for ages, haha :)
Both of your ideas sound great! I’ve been pining for a pair of shorts like that…would love to see a pic of what you end up wearing… :)posted about 2 years ago
