Pick of the Day: Leatherette Shorts


Have you been anticipating leather shorts since the beginning of summer? I know I have. My fascination was getting really bad as I was looking through eBay and ETSY on a daily basis. Then we received word that H&M were coming out with a black pair for Fall. Who ever their forecaster is should have known that they would sell out in a heartbeat. I missed my chance and couldn't get my hands on a pair. 

Yesterday as always I was reading through many fashionable blogs and stumbled on to one that featured a leatherette pair of shorts. If you are unfamiliar with the term "leatherette", it's the same as "pleather" (plastic leather). I think they changed it to make it sound more luxurious. Since the blogger is petite and they were high waisted, she had cinched it with a belt. Now I don't know if that was out of necessity or not, but the shorts had fit her well. 

With short shorts, it's difficult not to come off as too sexy. I think these shorts solve the dilemma by having a higher waist that balances out the length.

High Waist Leatherette Short
$16.90

To have it more wearable for the day I would pair it with a looser T, blouse, or sweater. When it starts to get even colder in the mornings you can wear it with tights. The best part of this particular pair of shorts, it comes in 3 more colors- Burgundy, Olive, Teal

I have always liked a more of a vintage feel to my clothes so I picked the burgundy pair to purchase. I think they would look great with jewel tones and neutrals this coming season.

  10. I'm excited about H&M's leatherette skirt. I don't think I'm "hip" enough for shorts. Did I just make myself sound a billion years old? Haha!
