One of my favourite past collections from Givenchy involved the layering of shorts with masculine patent tights. The result made for a formal/informal mash up, where crisp bib shirts met studs and sticky black shorts. Even the peacoats had a sophisticated gothic hint to them through the asymmetric shape. It's the legwear layering that really stayed with me though, and I tried out my own interpretation today. It might not be black and gothic based, and more of the countryside vibe, but jodhpurs with postman shorts makes for a friendly every-day version.
