Guy Shorts: The In Thing

Guys would you try this new trend? Ladies, would you allow you significant other to try it?

Guy shorts are now the new craze. It’s currently in many designer collections but is it cute? Fashion is a risk, while some might jump at it, others might prefer to pass on it. When we hear shorts we imagine everything a female would enjoy, seldom do we picture it on a man. Fashion knows no gender. Hehe!

Making your guy shorts pop is the furthest thing from easy. Finding the right length, pattern, fit and style, is paramount. It’s important to ensure that your shorts are not too short and not too tight. A good decent fit is the look we’re trying to have.

I’ve seen shorts paired with brazers and suit jackets, somewhat of a no-no; shorts are very causal to me. Ideal for vacations in the Caribbean, day out at the beach, a cool barbeque and lime, a fun day with friends and family, pool limes, private causal parties, afternoon limes, sitting in front of the television watching basketball with friends or by yourself. Stay true to its causal laid back roots. Please don’t wear shorts to weddings or in an attempt to be overly formal. I just don’t see it happening.

This look is a tricky look. Be mindful also of your height. If you’re overly tall, be careful of the length you choose. Please pink man shortsdon’t wear socks with your shorts. We wouldn’t want you to run the risk of looking overly aged. Comfy sneakers, sandals or even slippers are preferred.

Guy shorts are best worn with your shirt out and not in, also think colour. By introducing a brighter colour you can take shorts from boring to eye-catching. Shorts have a place in every man’s wardrobe, just make sure you wear them right.

“I actually have a lot of these in my closet. I think they’re comfortable and different. I love them.” – Delon

  1. Hi, nice tips and thanks for the positive outlook on us men showing some more skin, if done with style and taste :).
    “When we hear shorts we imagine everything a female would enjoy, seldom do we picture it on a man.” might enjoy some nice men legs, kidding ^_^-
    “Making your guy shorts pop is the furthest thing from easy. Finding the right length, pattern, fit and style, is paramount. It’s important to ensure that your shorts are not too short and not too tight. A good decent fit is the look we’re trying to have.”
    As they say in US, “Ikr! – I know right!” or “so true!” Pairing shoes or sandals especially!
    “I’ve seen shorts paired with brazers and suit jackets, somewhat of a no-no; shorts are very causal to me.

    Agree slightly less here, I’m afraid, it depends on the shorts, certainly not formal, but can look smart casual, definitely not for just beach (:.
    “don’t wear socks with your shorts. We wouldn’t want you to run the risk of looking overly aged. Comfy sneakers, sandals or even slippers are preferred.”
    Quite fine tip, as usually if it’s hot enough to wear shorts you don’t need socks, as most shoes are quite light and breathable, more flattering as they don’t make the feet look big, lol. Chunkier ones like Docs or other ankle boots, would need socks, but they are much harder to pull off. Loafers are also great as you show in some pics and breathable when low cut and of good quality. This talking about shoes as you don’t want to wear sandals with socks, that’s the 101 we take for granted :). Converse, however can also be flattering with shorts but would need ankle socks as they are more closed and higher vamped, for example.
    To be honest though, once in a while I wear some ankle socks with shorts, when in shoes, as I like them and want express some color and a style statement. Not higher than the ankle though.
    Actually some wear them above the ankle, not for me, but a few of them can pull it off. The important is confidence.
    Never tried pink ones, look great, a “real man” is never afraid to wear pink if he fancies it. I don’t understand all those gender based restrictions for men and women :).
