today i want... asos jersey leather shorts

You will no doubt know by now how much I love leather. A little shot of the lovely fabric can upgrade any outfit from simple to interesting with zero effort. You can be wearing all one colour, but if some of it's cotton and some leather, it will look edgy rather than boring. And now that summer's pretty much here, I don't see any reason not to continue to wear leather. Granted, leather trousers are pretty much out, but a lightweight shrunken jacket or pair of shorts shouldn't be banished just because of their fabric. In fact when you don't have layers of knitwear or coats to add interest to your outfit, mixing up the textures can be just the ticket. And today I came across the perfect summer leather piece: these amazing shorts from ASOS. The fact that the leather is taupe rather than black removes any wintry associations, and the sporty jersey and drawstring detail makes them oh so Alexander Wang, which can only be a good thing.
