Menswear Monday; How to Rock Shorts

It’s absolutely no secret that I love a man in shorts (and a mun, and a short sleeve button up..with a fade). I obviously have a type. Anyway, as the sunshine kisses our skin we’re urged to drop our pants (har har) and replace them with their fraternal twins, shorts! Many men are too scared to venture to the above-the-knee style, but I personally think they are the best. Grab yourself a short sleeve button up or loose tank and you’re ready to go.

An easy way to incorporate skinny shorts into your wardrobe is by picking up a pair that’s either black or dark wash. These can be worn with any color shirt, making them a little easier to deal with then their bleached older brothers. For a more casual approach to jorts, grab a floral tank top and some Vans. Wear your jorts the same way you would wear your jeans! Grab a tank with an interesting pattern and some Vans in a cool color. All set to show off your sexy  knees.

For a light wash pair of shorts, grab a darker top. I love short sleeve button ups and jorts, they’re always an easy and classy option. Grab some funky socks and some cool work boots (not to mention some trendy accessories) and you’re good to go.

You will never grow as a person if you don’t step out of your comfort zone. Seriously, what’s more nerve wracking that showing off your knees while wearing a printed pair of shorts?! Maybe wearing a printed pair of shorts with some Chelsea boots and a hat.. Well men, take the leap! Pair a printed pair of shorts with a simple, solid colored tank top. Make sure to keep the shoes simple also! If you’re wearing a statement piece like these shorts you don’t need to add a lot to them, they do the talking themselves.

If you’re picking up a pair of distressed jorts, don’t be afraid to commit to the Nirvana-esqu vibe they  may bring. Grab one of your flannels, tie it around your waist and top the outfit off (literally) with a vintage band tank or tee. Slip into some Vans or Keds or the like and you’re all set.

Never be afraid to have fun with style. Seriously, it’s exhilarating to dress for no one but yourself. Have fun, take risks and show off your sexy knees.

Namaste,
