The leather shorts: on its way to classic

Every fashionista must own a pair of leather shorts says Net-a-Porter.Com. This urban chic trend will be present on the fashion scene for at least two seasons, and even if it may seem like targeted for teens, new designs on offer are more women friendly. Sure this look could easily slip into the tacky zone if being too short, tight and “zipper-y” or teamed up with glitzy tops – Balmain even counts on this formula.
