Due to the fact that it is disgustingly hot and on the heels of the fourth of July, an epidemic of jean shorts has broken out. Now I realize there are some very cute jeans shorts women are sporting but that is not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about the kind of jean shorts my dad used to wear with his thick white socks rolled out of his sandals before my mother put that to a swift end. Personally I think they are just “meh” but walking around with one of my guy friends this weekend he quickly noticed and announced that “men who wear jean shorts are freaks. period.”. Keep reading »
Annika has challenged us all to wear shorts (and look nice doing so) this spring, and Katy here proves that it’s possible! Along with her nude lace-up flats, high-waisted shorts, and bangle bracelets, we love how the long necklace ads a little oomph to her outfit. [Weardrobe]

Today’s New York Times Style Section article “Shorts Crack the Code” says it’s okay and increasingly common for men to wear shorts to work. We don’t support this fad because:
- Forests of leg hair.
- Dangling bits.
- The existence of air conditioning.
- Shorts + loafers = douche.
- Even Chuck Bass can’t pull them off.

Men have many options when it comes to showing some skin this summer: board shorts, classic speedos, spandex hot pants, banana hammocks, and now the mankini. While Borat and John Mayer have made the mankini a laughing stock in lime green, at the recent Alexander McQueen menswear show in Milan, the tan and black is so cutting edge it looks like the future, like something one of the guys on Star Trek would wear. Maybe not Captain Jean-Luc Piccard, he’s totally a sporty shorty kinda guy. However, a guy like Geordi LaForge would definitely make the mankini swoon. But is this look realistically rockable for the modern mman? [Wake Up America] Keep reading »

It seemed like it was never gonna happen, but spring is finally in the air! While some celebrate by partaking in any possible outdoor activity — long walks, picnics, sitting outside and reveling in the fact that such an act is no longer torturous — others, like yours truly, reach for their favorite warm-weather appropriate ensembles. Mine is comprised of a formula that is quite basic and yields solid results. Ready? Super short shorts, a cute top, and killer heels. This look is all about the legs, hence, all other areas of skin aside from your face should go into hiding — you gotta leave something to the imagination. I tend t think the top should also be relatively subdued, so no crazy patterns, embellishments, ruffles, and so on. The key here to keep it effortlessly sexy. A thin top, floaty blouse, or even a mildly sexy cami topped with a thin cardigan are all great ways to keep it mellow on top. My suggestions, after the jump! Keep reading »
