"Seeing double double, Double Vision." These leather shorts have me channeling my inner rockstar. (Thanks, Foreigner, for everything.) And now I'm talking a bit about how to wear leather shorts, because this outfit is just one of the endless ways you can wear this statement item.
The How To: Do You
Try dressing them down with a white t-shirt and a jean jacket, or glam it up with sky high heels and a sleek blouse. Wear them in the Summer with sandals and a slinky tank top, or wear them in the Winter with tights, booties, and a chunky sweater. (I wasn't kidding, the options are endless.) Sure, I could show you a bunch of photos of how to wear them for style inspo, but that's just more of the same. You wear them YOUR way, with your personal style, your beautiful booty, and your confidence.
I recently watched the documentary Iris on Netflix, and fell deep in love with this style icon. There is much to learn from this woman, and this documentary, about personal style and how to shop like a pro. But perhaps most importantly, I learned about the lifelong journey of style. The more you discover who you are, the more you discover your personal style. I may have never had silver hair a few years ago, or thought twice about it, but here I am, and I feel more like myself than ever. Whether you're wearing a t-shirt and jeans or leather shorts and a vivaciously vibrant blazer, it's all about how you wear the clothes, not the other way around. Confidence, ladies. It goes a long way.
"There's no how-to road map to style. It's about self-expression, and, above all, attitude." - Iris Apfel
