- The origins of shorts – The ultimate tropical outfit fix!
- A stylish pair of shorts can do wonders to your style statement!
Shorts were worn by both men and women way back in the 19th century. You might have already seen images of school children wearing shorts as uniforms and athletes among many others. The term “shorts” is originated from England which means “knickerbockers”. This type of pants is very popular during summer as well as hot climate countries.
Now fast forward to the current fashion time-line, while shorts are still irreplaceable in women’s closets, they are not always the first choice of men for the level of “leg exposure”. However, as style evolves, shorts have also become a wardrobe stable for a gentleman as they have always been to the ladies. Let’s explore which shorts design suit you best.
You will be surprised to know that there are, in fact, more shorts styles than a typical amount of pants in a man’s wardrobe!
