Shorts Story: The Spring Leather Pairs You Need Now

If you're a Spring leather skeptic, look no further than Dree Hemingway showing off a fresh pair of black leather shorts with an easy white sweater for Madewell as proof of its wearability. Sure, the Spring runways from Alexander Wang to Marni and Fendi served up the inspiration, but if you've been hesitant to get on board, this laid-back take might be more your speed. Leather shorts don't require quite as much commitment as, say, a leather dress, and they're better-suited for Spring and Summer weather than your leather pants. All you need to channel the cool-girl vibe à la Dree is your favorite transitional knit or a great slouchy tee. Easy, right? We're about to make it even easier, too. We've done the legwork and narrowed it down to our 14 favorite pairs of leather (and faux leather) shorts. The rest is up to you — shop our editors' picks below and start thinking of all the ways you can wear them.
