Walking shorts are quite the trendy casual wear this season, and MariaElena Barbosa has brought them to us with her usual creativity in design and quality in execution.  And not just the shorts, but a complete outfit!

Beginning with the shorts, the fabric is a rich café tweed, the color light enough to show off the creases and folds.  Prim pant legs and cuffs add depth and dimension to the piece, and they blend in well with the pant layer.  I found the prims easy to fit to my shape.

Moving to the upper body, Maria balances the dark tone of the shorts with an open light khaki jacket over a charcoal top.  The jacket is just amazing – rich in embellishments, such as the zippered pockets and snaps on the collar.  Detailing is outstanding, right down to the inner lining and the teeth of the zipper.  Cropped short and with rolled sleeves, the jacket gives the outfit a modern urban look.  If you love the jacket (and I really love the jacket), it is also included in different colors with several other outfits in the Fall Collection.

Those walking shorts just beg for an attractive pair of boots, and so the outfit includes the MEB stiletto boots in brown leather.  These boots have a classically shaped toe and heel, and the color will go well with many of the fall and winter outfits you are likely to wear this season.  You may wear the boots with your choice of an alpha layer or invisiprims, and the boots are scripted for resizing.

Reflecting MEB’s new pricing structure, Berliner sells for L$450, with all of the above pieces included in the set.  Permissions: transfer only.
