{fashion folio} long nights, short hemlines

{fashion folio} long nights, short hemlines
Jimmy Choo Mirage Leather Knee Boots + Karen Walker Deep Freeze Sunglasses in Black + Dara Ettinger Abby Ring in Midnight + Theyskens’ Theory Paluccia Norinto Leather Shorts + J. Crew Blythe Silk Shirt + HELMUT Gala Jacket in Black + Joomi Lim Luxe Double Spike Choker in Gold / Silver + Yves Saint Laurent ROUGE PUR COUTURE SPF15 - Pure Colour Satiny Radiance in 1 Le Rouge

People expect short hemlines during the cocktail hour. Miniskirts, minidresses, or, for the truly daring, thigh-high slits that create the illusion of a mini when, in all actuality, you are garbed in a maxi {think Angelina Jolie}. What few don’t necessarily expect is a short hemline made possible by an actual pair of shorts - in this case, of the black leather variety.

An untucked white button-down topped with an unbuttoned black blazer {cuff the sleeves to fashion an ultra-chic color-blocking effect} tempers the sportiness of the shorts, adding a hint of business cas; while a pair of dark, Risky Business-inspired sunglasses plays up the cool, yet oh-so effortless effect. Up the edgy ante with a spiked choker, and chunky cocktail ring embellished with natural jagged agate elements; a pair of killer black leather boots {heeled, naturally}; and bring your pout alive with a bold red lip - the finishing touch for devastating sophistication.
