Calling for Coated

Sep 12, 2014

This New York Fashion Week, there’s no question that street style reached an all time high. Everywhere we turned, we were inundated with contrasting prints, athletic tees, baby bumps, flatforms,  fringe, and eccentric clutches. Whether dressed up, or dressed down, style stars from around the the world converged upon NYC with flash and flair.

At DSTLD, we were inspired to see one piece in particular - black leather shorts - styled multiple ways. The perfect example of how to repurpose a summer staple into fall, and gain insight into the versatility of this garment. Forget everything you thought you knew about styling leather - these avante garde tastemakers are proof that a great pair of leather shorts can be paired with nearly everything in your closet.

Of course, leather isn’t in everyone’s budget or sartorial stylehouse, but coated denim provides a (wallet) friendly alternative without sacrificing leather’s enviable softness, sheen, and over all look of luxury. We might also add it’s much more comfortable. Achieve instant street style with our Mid Rise Coated Short in Black Powerstretch. Clean design elements, like slant front pockets and welt back pockets, create a modern, structured, and sleek silhouette that’s year-round-ready. Try with heels, booties and tights, a silk top, or chunky sweater - the Coated Short has endless styling possibilities and timeless appeal.
