5 Leather shorts you need to know about

5 leather ladylike shorts fall 2010

I don’t know if you noticed, but the leather trend very much continues into this fall.
It began last year, with designers using leather, as they would a fabric, to create both minimal and ladylike dresses, bubble skirts and a myriad of pants, jackets and coats. I also cannot leave unmentioned the uniform biker leather jacket, as at this point each and and every one of us probably has one in her closet.

While some fashion houses hasn’t changed their tune and continue to see leather as way to create a bad girl look (hint, it begins with a ‘B’ and ends with a ‘main’), most others has moved on beyond this one dimensional use, and embraced the new function of leather – a means to bring power, chic and sophistication into the outfit.

These 5 leather shorts are not meant to create a rock-n-roll look, well, at least they shouldn’t have too. Combine them with tights, heels and a jacket for a smart and powerful look.
