Would You Wear Leather Shorts In The Summer à la Olivia Palermo

London’s heatwave has resulted in an increase in the sale of fans, so the last item of clothing on my wish list right now is leather shorts.

Leather shorts were presented during many Spring 2013 fashion shows, at Gianfranco Ferre, 3.1 Phillip Lim, See by Chloe, Fendi, Reed Krakoff and Trussardi to name a few.

Olivia Palermo was spotted out in New York City earlier today headed for a meeting on a sunny day in Manhattan wearing a simple crisp white shirt and Zara tan croc leather shorts.

As much as I’m sweltering on her behalf, she did opt for a light-weight option in a relaxed loose-fit style and a punchy hue, pulling the look off both coolly and effortlessly.

She styled her look with her can’t-live-without Aquazzura ‘Sexy Thing’ cut-out nude suede booties and her burgundy Fendi ’2Jours’ tote.

Will you be rocking leather shorts this summer?
