they've been growing on me a lot lately, especially when in matt leather and after seeing this pair at Balmain I'm won over
I think they can look great, but I'm guessing that they can look bad quite easily too. I like them in this picture. Although I haven't seen anyone wearing them in real life, I'm guessing that they're a bit like leather pants in the sense that they just seem to work on some people and not on others. You should go for it

theyre very unflattering as leather tend to crease and wrinkle worse than fabric, making it look kind of weird around the crouch area. the ones on carmen are super short and they still look a little weird, that means 99.9% of the female population wont be able to pull them off, however im open to see new interpretations of this trend.
I love leather shorts (and all things leather in general) and I really want a pair, but it's so hard to find the perfect pair! I usually like my shorts to be really tiny, because that's most flattering on my legs which aren't very long. But I suppose leather hot pants could very easily look slutty when they're too short and I don't want to risk that
Here are some of my favorites that I had saved on my computer:
When it comes to leather shorts (and leather garments in general) it's all about proper matching. Of course, you can look slutty in them, but paired with something simple and in good quality they can look very chic and classy.
Personally, I'd never wear leather shorts because I'm not a huge fan of pants in general, but seeing them on other girls would be nice.
^I totally agree. Also the ones I've seen in the local high street shops are the short ones. They are made in faux leather and the quality is so bad, they look like they are made of plastic. I can't help but think of them being a part of a hookers outfit
They might look better in real leather though
Snowqueen, those brown baggy ones sounds lovely. pics?
