With a Printed Tee
Camo is all the rage right now, and the print is a match made in heaven for leather. But, any printed tee will do. The camo + leather makes for an edgy combination, but more feminine print would offer a nice contrast! Or try a graphic or slogan tee. Get all the outfit details here.
With a Chunky Knit
Leather shorts paired with a chunky knit make a perfect pair for transitioning your wardrobe to fall! Not too warm for day, and perfect for when the evening chill rolls in. When it really gets cold swap out the sandals for ankle boots and you’re good to go. You can even add socks or tights when it gets REALLY, REALLY cold. Get all the outfit details here.
With a Flowy Blouse
A soft floral print blouse offers a nice bit of contrast to the edginess of the leather. And again, any print or even solid color blouse will do. It’s really more about the breezy fabric against the tough leather, so break out any of your chiffon-esque blouses and give it a go. Also, this is another look that transitions beautifully to fall. Again, add a pair of tights, some ankle boots, and blazer. Voila! Fall ready in minutes. Get all the outfit details here.
With a Casual Button Up Shirt…Unbuttoned
For an effortless, model-off-duty sorta vibe, pair leather shorts with your favorite casual button up. A chambray shirt or even a plaid button up would work. The key to getting the effortless look is to keep the shirt unbuttoned with a slouchy tee or tank underneath. Throw on a pair of killer heels and a pair of shades, and hit the town! It’s a look that says, “Seriously, I didn’t try that hard, but the most casual thing I have in my wardrobe is these fabulous leather shorts…so I’m trying to dress them down.” Lol!

With a Classic Striped Tee
So, why didn’t I lump the classic striped tee in with the printed tee above? Well, call me crazy, but the striped tee stands on its own. Seriously, it’s like its own fashion category, especially the classic white tee with thin blue stripes. I think every woman should own at least 5 of these…and replace them often! So anyway, the classic striped tee is the perfect companion for leather shorts (or leather anything really). Use accessories to dress the look up or down. A blinged out statement necklace would look fab. Or, opt for layered chains like I did here. Get all the outfit details here.
