How to Style Leather Shorts for a Trendy Fall Outfit

Fall in Central Park is one of my favorite times of the year. The fall foliage in the park is unparalleled and always takes my breathe away. For a casual and trendy fall outfit that’s perfect for a long stroll in the park, I chose an unexpected piece. Rather than going with jeans, I went with leather shorts that would allow movement without sacrificing style. You might think that shorts are only reserved for Summer, but there is totally a way to style shorts for the Fall and Winter. Wearing shorts with tights for cooler weather always draws people’s attention and is a great conversation starter.

The leather shorts were the perfect choice to go with this chunky sweater. Since the sweater has more volume, shorts are a great option for tucking in the sweater to achieve an effortless chic look. I also like that the leather gives the outfit some edge. This Romeo & Juliet Couture sweater is from Luxe Catch, which is a $50 monthly subscription box filled with designer goodies worth up to $350! In addition to this sweater, I also received a gold leather jacket that you will see in an upcoming post. To keep the outfit casual for a stroll through the park, I chose velvet flats from Old Navy that are only $23 and look way more expensive than they cost. Notice that the black tights help the double straps on the flats stand out.

For my accessories, I chose statement feather earrings from Nocturne Studio to dress up the sweater. I’ve previously featured Nocturne in these posts (here & here), I am obsessed with their feather jewelry and exquisite attention to detail. To further elevate the look, I chose my Chloe drew bag and a sophisticated blue watch from Klasse14. Finally, for an extra trendy touch, I attached a big pom pom to my bag.
