We like short shorts!
Despite what you may think, you did not just walk into a 1970s gym class. This Fashionisto is actually from the 21st century and totally stylish. He is rocking a pair of vintage linen shorts that fall well above his knees. Though he may be taking his grandpa’s style (literally—he stole them from his abuelo’s drawer), he incorporates the shorts into a comfy and more modern summer menswear setting—with a tiny bit more of his long legs showing.
For the most part, our Fashionisto keeps his outfit simple. Where he makes a bold statement is in the pop of color he adds on top with a bright orange T-shirt. He then complements his shirt with bright blue canvas Vans, thus making both colors stand out even more strongly. Let’s not forget about those orange socks—this Fashionisto made no effort to conceal them and instead chose the complementary color of his shoes to unite his whole outfit.
The shorts, in turn, are the most subtle piece of his ensemble. Yet, a garment doesn’t necessarily have to make a statement based on color. That’s why short shorts work perfectly well as a practical, neutral and extra stylish base for a modern guy’s summer attire. Especially good for lanky fellows like this Fashionisto, the tactful statement will make the body’s proportions look a little less boxy and a little more polished and slim.
Fashionistos: just because you’re a cool dude doesn’t mean your shorts need to hit your knee. You can still wear the simple summertime outfits that you love, yet you can get even more breeze on your legs with a slightly shorter cut on your shorts. They are very subtle, yet deliberate enough to turn heads. You can even try this style with swimsuit trunks—think about how much less fabric will hold you back in the water! And of course, those toned legs of yours will look great.
