1) Repeat after me - "Leather shorts are not scary to wear!" Ok, start simple with a plain old spaghetti-top or camisole and try it out in bright yellow. Pair the casual ensemble with high-top sneakers. 

2) Elegant Punk - Wear an elegant and arty print blouse with your black leather shorts for that updated sophisticated look. Pair it with your favourite pair of heels.

3) My personal favourite style would be a comfy knit with a colourful print or design to wear with the black leather shorts. I would complete the look with a pair of lace-up over-the-knee boots for that extra kick of sexy-ness.
