Ever since I wrote about leather shorts in April, I’ve been getting blog traffic from people searching for the phrase “where can I buy leather shorts.”

I like to be helpful so I’ve been keeping an eye out for interesting vintage options. Here they are. Click the photos to shop.

Red leather, 24" waist, $234 at Vagabond NYC.

Black leather shorts with fringe, size 6/8, $165 at Marion Mercer.

Escada gold shorts, size 4, $202.50 on sale on eBay.

'80s bronze shorts, size 10, $98 at Nasty Gal.

Purple shorts from The Limited, size 2, $22 on Etsy.

Yellow suede shorts, $49 on Etsy.

Tan shorts, 27" waist, £25.00 at Rokit.

Just to give you some inspiration, here’s gorgeous blogger Marian Kihogo in her vintage orange leather shorts.

If  you’re looking for new leather shorts, you have lots of options including ones from True Religion, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Juicy Couture, Joie, Phillip Lim, Tibi, Theory, Topshop, The Row and Alice + Olivia.  And, if you’re wondering what to wear with your leather shorts, there’s only one reasonable choice: my latest swear-ring designs! Pre-order them now on Kickstarter by clicking the widget.

Maybe it’s time for Nair to do a “Who wears leather shorts?” commercial.

UPDATED TO ADD: Great minds think alike! Gorgeous blogger Fi of SOS! Save Our Shoes just posted her new leather shorts.

    Sorry, but I can’t see the words “leather shorts” without picturing a big German guy in leiderhosen. Where’s my beer and schnitzel?

  2. Tess says:

    these are pretty hot actually

  3. stacy says:

    Something about leather shorts doesn’t make a lot of sense, but that’s not the point of fashion, is it?
    I used to have such a great pair, but leather definitely has a shelf life. Guess I need new ones!

  4. Melissa says:

    I NEED the boots that the girl in the yellow shorts has. simple, black, “narrow” calved. : )

  5. Red leather shorts. WANT!

  6. Franca says:

    Those orange ones are actually perfect! Shorts do not work for me at all, but all these make me wish they did!

  7. I have a brown pair and have been looking for a black pair, I really like the colourful ones though!!

  8. ooo i love the first pair! such a great piece for fall:)

  9. marian says:

    i love leather shorts!
    I like the new ring design
    Thank you for the mention

  10. hiyaluv says:

    now i have “who wears short shorts?!” stuck in my head..thanks:) on another note-92% funded-fabulous!!

  11. enc says:

    I love that top pair. All those vintage ones are so high-waisted it’s unreal! They’re all Mertzed out! I’d love some really minimalist black ones, low-waisted of course.

    (my captcha is “micro,” haw. “Micro” is the “length” of shorts all teenage girls wear here. Everyone looks like Jodie Foster in “Taxi Driver.”)

  12. enc says:

    That last pair would do for me!

  13. Love it.. Almost tempted to try one of the pastel colored ones.

  14. Nickie Frye says:

    So cute! I have a pair of vintage leather pants that I never wear. Maybe I should chop them into shorts? Actually I have a vintage suede pair, too. Hmm. Ideas! 😉 Thanks! xoxo

  15. The deep red one is dead amazing. I am having visions of it tucked into a sheer black long-sleeved chiffon top, windswept bedhead and black suede ankleboots.

  16. Kristin says:

    Totally in love with the last pair. And YAY, you’re almost at 100%! Was there ever any doubt?

    • WendyB says:

      Now I just need people to really order those rings! Because it’s no good if I manufacture them and wind up sitting on a big pile of inventory. So tell all your friends!

      Some of my big donations have come from people who are buying other things from my collection, so those aren’t counted as purchases of the new rings.

  17. Hmmm, I kinda like the idea of leather shorts but those pairs are all way too long. Even lederhosen-wearing men show off more leg than that.

    I swear my mom owned those bronze pair back in the eighties. I believe she wore them with an off white, silky shirt that had shoulder pads that would make any football player weep with envy.

  18. apparellel says:

    oh i like the top ones and the nasty gals. so glad you almost have all the pledges needed. yay!

  19. Love those black leather shorts and the yellow suede ones. Great picks!:)SarahD

  20. Penny Lane says:

    I saw a gal in leather shorts and she looked fabulous.

  22. OnTheRacks says:

    Wowza! Love those red ones. And the gold are pretty amazing too! Now I really want a pair.

  23. Mode Junkie says:

  24. Laura says:

    It´s a good idea with these words like “OMG, GaGa, GO!”
    Have a nice day! xo.
