Pleather never looked so good. Introducing Kombu, our luxurious new pleather shorts to hit Lychee the label’s new arrival. These babies are the next go-to piece in your closet, and let us tell you why. Kombu is designed with elements of edge and streetwear in mind, the ultimate combo in every lychee attire. These shorts are comfortable, form-fitting, and a total looker. There are mock zipper detailings highlighted on the front of the shorts as well as aesthetic and function belt hoops located all around. The pleather front of the shorts is slightly inverted where it zips down and the back also has two mini pockets attached. The real statement of this piece, however, is the zippered thigh detail. The shorts can be worn as is or with it unzipped to allow for the pleather strap to slightly fall, as it can be unzipped all the way to the back, but not detached. Both are a look that can be set for different occasions, depending on how you want to wear it. 

Mix and Match

Kombu is that piece in your closet that will instantly elevate the edgy factor to any outfit. It’s really our cheat code. Our favorite way to rock the Kombu Zipper Pleather Shorts for a slick night out is with our Meringue Drop Chain Tube Top in black. They both have metallic elements and a dark punk aesthetic that really complement each other well. Similarly, you can swap out the top for the Shiso Buckle Waist Detail Bustier Top for a similar vibe. Throw on a pair of Charcoal Thigh High Socks and you have yourself a stunning outfit.

Runs very large

I recommend going 2 sizes down if you want to wear it like the model does. Ordered M (120lbs) and it doesn't hug my thighs at all even when completely zipped. Otherwise its still cute and good quality

Amazing shorts

Love how soft the pleather is! Seem to be good quality. It is on the slightly bigger side, however, not sure how this style will fit if I sized down. I love this piece since it’s so versatile and can be worn all year around.

Cute and edgy!

I was curious how this would fit me as I fit the Small measurements just fine, the only part that ran large IMHO was the leg opening/thigh as it measures 11" across (laid flat, zipped). The pleather is really soft and it gives the shorts a edgy look combined with all the zippers, I love these shorts but wish they carried an Extra Small because then they'd fit me perfectly!!

I love these shorts, I’m just concerned about if the zipper will stay up, but these are such a vibe

Cute and unique

These are so perfect for what I was looking for and the option to have them unzipped is fun. The only thing I would say is that if you are in between sizes, size down. I did the opposite and went up because I didn't want them to be too tight, but they're a bit loose now. For reference, I'm 5'2" and usually wear a size M or 6 in bottoms.

So cute!

These are amazing quality and so soft and nice. Size fits perfectly according the measurements but unfortunately I had to return them as I'm 5'11" and they really aren't made for tall people! The places where they hit weren't flattering like the photos and I had a big wedgie basically. I'm sure they would look amazing on shorter people!

Comfy n Edgy!!

I fell in love with the style of these shorts when I first saw them and they did not disappoint. For reference I am 29in waist and 36in hip and the shorts are surprisingly comfy and the fitting was pretty much spot on. I was curious tho as to why there was note saying the style ran large and I realized when I got it that it was a bit loose around the thighs. Thankfully the zippers are adjustable so I can tighten it accordingly. Overall, I love the style and I can’t wait to pair it with some thigh highs and boots!
