…He wears short shorts! The best summer day consists of a dive into the ocean, a cold brew coffee and a Fashionisto that can pull off half-length shorts. I know that many Fashionistos were very apprehensive about the short cut of the half-length short as the trend began to emerge. I get it, guys. Usually it’s the women who have to worry about how much leg is too much leg. But Fashionistos, break those social standards. Don’t let what society says keep you in a box. Rock these short shorts.
Whenever I see a Fashionisto around campus totally rockin’ a pair of half-length shorts, my heart stops a little bit. I spotted this Fashionisto in the high hills of Montecito sporting my favorite half-length shorts and a vintage floral button-up. He does a magnificent job at keeping this seemingly casual summer look very classy and chic by adding some sharp accessories and a very clean-looking pair of shoes.
If you’re more of a grunge loving Fashionisto, mix it up with a soft printed T-shirt. The shirt will instantly add a more casual look and you could easily add on a classic pair of fresh kicks.
Hint: Make sure you are aware of how short and tight the shorts are that you pick. If they are too short and tight, we might get a little preview of something that is better kept a mystery. Also, if they are too long, don’t be afraid to go to a seamstress to get a good hem. An easy way to make a pair of half-length shorts is to cut a old pair of skinny jeans to a fair length and roll it up a few times.
