Style Rx: Piper Perabo's Leather Bike Shorts Make Our Blood Pressure Rise

Who: Piper Perabo

Where: Visiting the SiriusXM studios in N.Y.C.

Diagnosis: She’s suffering from one of the highest “Leave It” ratings in recent StyleWatch history. Also: chafing.

RELATED PHOTOS: Vote on questionable star style in “Obsessed or Hot Mess?”

Prognosis: There is absolutely no resuscitating high-waisted, quilted, front-zip leather bike shorts: They must be left to die. For immediate triage, we recommend swapping in some cute, relaxed cutoffs. Once the immediate danger is over, we can discuss wearing a long-sleeved turtleneck in July, but at the moment, the cute shoes and great hair keep Piper out of immediate danger.

Wow….not very attractive! Though Piper is very cute as a rule, this is not a good look for anyone.

Not a good look

Sunny on

Not good. Ditch the shorts.

Yikes! She’d look great, had she worn a leather pencil skirt, or leather mini, or shorter leather shorts, or leather skinnies, or even leather Capri’s would be better! This is just not a good look, for leather…

Love her and her show! But sorry the shorts need to go! :)

I thought the shoes were what made it even worse.

What did she see in those pants. Is she blind ?

I wore the same outfit last week on WENDY WILLIAMS and she looked great. Loved the shorts.
