Joanna does quite a few things in life, but writing has been her favorite by far. She is a city girl who has moved to a beach town, and second to writing, will never tire of music, travel, and the friendships she makes as a result of both.


Those of us over here at Independence Brothers can go on and on about leather jackets. It’s our favorite fashion item, but leather is our favorite material. While you may think of leather as something for your jackets, shoes, furniture, gloves, and belts, it can be good for another thing - shorts.

Shorts are never the first thought if you’re wearing leather on your bottom half. Shoes and even leather pants would come prior. Leather shorts, however, are the perfect fashion item when the weather is warm but not too hot. If you are a leather lover, leather shorts let you wear the material in the warmer months. Leather pants in the spring and summer can easily get too hot. The weather at that point is also too warm for leather jackets. Leather shorts are, as Goldilocks would say, just right.

Leather shorts also dress up your outfit a bit more than denim. You have different fashion options for occasions that denim just wouldn’t work for. Plus, leather is a strong, durable, and comfortable material.

So how can you style your next favorite fashion item? Let’s discuss this below.

Shorts and Tights

For days that include a bit of a chill, pair your leather shorts with tights or leggings. You can go classic with a pair of black tights, or you can do something a bit more vibrant. Patterns and bright colors can go great with your outfit. Pair that with flats and whatever blouse you want, and you are good to go! This look not only is a bit different but gives your legs an extra layer of protection. The weight of your tights can differ based on the temperature outside.

Oversized Sweater

You may have sensed the theme here. We love pairing leather shorts with something that keeps you a bit warm. An oversized sweater is another perfect pair. Whether you decide to go with nude colors or something bright, it’ll be sure to keep your top half cozy and warm.

Button Down Blouse and Heels

While shorts may not be work appropriate, you can still dress them up in business casual fashion. Pair your leather shorts with a button-down shirt and a night pair of heels. If your leather shorts are high-waisted, that works even better! You can also accessorize here - bangle jewelry, nice earrings - to glam it up.

Leather shorts can work to dress up or dress down. If you’re having a casual outing, pair your leather shorts with a T-shirt. Similarly, to the sweater, the loose contrast of the top versus the bottom gives it a nice, casual look.

Where To Buy Leather Shorts

This blog usually references jackets, so you might be wondering - where can I buy leather shorts? There are tons of options for this fashion look.

The main thing to keep in mind is that many places carry faux leather shorts. Usually, it’s labeled. Stores like Nordstrom, Walmart, and even Amazon have options to rock the faux leather. If you want to go genuine, places like Leather Outlet carry the real deal. Generally, leather shorts are for women, but men’s versions exist as well.
