Better not skip leg day at the gym any time soon – one of the key trends for this season and spring/summer next year are short shorts for men, so head to your favourite urban clothing stores now to stock up.
Forget about your board shorts from now on… it’s all about being brave and getting your legs out as soon as the sun is shining. It’s all in how you wear them however, so make sure you stick to the smart end of the spectrum with lots of tailored separates and more masculine tops to give the look a bit of edge.
As for colours, you can do no wrong if you stick to sandy or stone shades, as well as stripes and denim. If you really want to go the whole hog and hit this trend head on, make sure your short shorts are high waisted and you’ll be just fine.
Those of you who feel like their legs aren’t long enough to get away with wearing short shorts, well, wash your mouths out with soap. You can wear what you want and don’t let anyone ever tell you any different. There are some tricks you can try to elongate your legs, though, like picking your shorts out in a colour that’s similar to your skin tone.
Above-the-knee shorts are better for lengthening your legs and look out for something slim-fitting as these will make your legs look longer and leaner. Baggier shorts will drown your legs and make you look shorter. Luckily, you can get all sorts of shorts in a slim fit so you’ll be spoiled for choice.
