Fashion File - Men's Shorts

Yesterday I did a Fashion File post for women, so today I thought I'd do one for my male readers (didn't want to leave them out!).  Men's shorts come in all lengths, and according to some of the information I found on the internet, knee length seems to be attractive on most men.  If you're really fit and tan, you can get away with a shorter length.

Men can get shorts in cotton or cotton knit, and they would be called chino's, seersuckers, or khaki's.  Cargo shorts are popular, and plaid is also a good choice.  Jean shorts are always a good option for most men and they are really versatile.  White is flattering with a nice tan and the right shirt. There are also board shorts, that are popular with the younger crowd.  There's also the short that's used for sports or working out.  This length is preferably shorter.

Most guys live in shorts in the warm weather.  Not many options for them.  Women have skirts, dresses, capris as well as shorts.  Not fair I'd say.

Guys, if you're going to go the blue jean cut-off route, please don't do what this guy did: http://media.photobucket.com/image/cut-offs/couwlier/ATT00073.jpg?o=11.

Have a great day!
