As the weather gets colder it has become more difficult for me to add variety to my daily outfits. In the summer it was so easy to go from sundresses, to shorts, to skorts—the options were endless. But the colder months are proving to be difficult. I strive for comfort and often resort to my favorite pair of jeans and a cozy sweater. However, I recently across an older pair of leather shorts and decided to give them another shot. It’s true, leather shorts can be worn with any type of top, but I believe their best worn with a fitted sweater. This black and white patterned Banana Republic sweater is ideal because it’s not too baggy, it’s practical and the black and white combination isn’t overwhelming; balancing out the ‘edginess’ of the leather. Seriously, give your denims and black dress pants a rest, and introduce a pair of leather shorts to your mix.
