Vegan Versions \ Leather Shorts

Not Vegan: Alexander Wang Leather Shorts

Sometimes I wonder how it is I can be a vegan but still LOVE the way leather looks. It’s so bad ass and slick. A good leather item can instantly make any outfit less girlie and more tough.

I’ve been absolutely loving the recent leather short craze. Especially Alexander Wang’s version. Let me tell you searching the internet for vegan options on this trend was infuriating, because if you input the wrong search terms you get a bunch of bootie shorts and banana hammocks. Yuck.

After some research I did find several viable options. While researching this post I fell in love with the Free People pair below, though they’re not high-waisted like the inspiration pair.  While in Manhattan after work this past Monday, I happened by their storefront (which I didn’t know they had one, I thought they were an online retailer).  I ducked in quick to see if they had them, and treated myself to an early birthday present.  They were on display right up front so I viewed it as a sign they were destined for my wardrobe.  Happy (early) Birthday to me!

What’s your thoughts on leather shorts? I have a feeling it’s you either love them or hate them, there’s no in-between.
