Barely two weeks ago, media entrepreneur and style influencer Noble Igwe was in South Africa and shared pictures of himself wearing the most stylish shorts and blazer set I have seen in a while. It was Ankara-made. It was risqué! And the internet freaked out! While some totally loved his outfit, others judged that his shorts were ‘too short’, and others deemed it unacceptable for a married man to wear such a short pair of shorts.
What did the style police at Style Rave think? Style is personal. So we think it is only a matter of opinion – so long as you are comfortable in your outfit, then do you. How short is too short is a personal matter. But one thing we know for sure is that men in stylish shorts look super confident and super stylish. So if you’re thinking of unique ways to stand out at all the social events you’ll be attending this holiday season, think shorts!
Shorts are tricky and definitely not the easiest piece of clothing to pull off. Different cuts work for different body types and as always fit is everything. So before you buy a new pair of shorts, make sure that it complements your physique because the way a design fits on someone else may not look the same way on you.
To make shorts shopping a bit easier, we have compiled 4 ways our male Style Ravens can pull off the shorts look with style.
