Summer and leather aren't supposed to go together.
Then again, if someone were to hand us this pair of bright-red leather shorts and invite us to rock ‘em with a cool white button-down, we just might reconsider that most rigid of fashion rules. After all, Ashlee Simpson sure isn't standing on ceremony when she attended a Samsung event in New York, and we can't say we blame her.
And we cannot say enough good things about these Alice + Olivia shorts. They're not your typical, barely-there short-shorts of 2012, the kind with the pockets hanging low and slapping against one's thighs. (No offense, Alessandra Ambrosio. Those pockets slapping up against your thighs are just fine.) No, these leather shorts have a classy inch or two of length that we love.
And the color radiates on-trend confidence, especially when paired with simple black booties and a matching clutch. We're all over this leather-in-the-hot-weather trend. Check out our spin on it on tonight's episode of Fashion Police at 10/9 C!
Unless we're all wrong. You tell us—gotta have it or make it stop?
