I love it when I find pieces that I I'll be able to wear again when the season rolls back around. It's even better when I can rock that same item throughout the entire year. Take, for example, Helmut Lang's crackled leather shorts; these all weather leather shorts in a relaxed fit are easy to wear with everything from chunky, strappy sandles to boots of any height. During the spring/summer season light, gauzy tees and flirty blouses are perfect while chunky knits and layers make them fall/winter wearable (over tights/leggings). Black or a nude shade is preferable as I'll have more styling options throughout the seasons, while a colored pair is fun for a one time event. These all weather leather shorts are also a chic alternative to the mini.
