Would You Wear These “Not-Into-Preppy” Menswear Shorts?

As creative and fashion forward as preppy menswear can be, it should be respected and appreciated that the style just isn’t for every guy. It’s okay not to wear super tailored shorts. It’s alright not to get shorts that don’t cut too high above the knee. It’s fine to pass on the cuffed shorts trend. With so many men’s fashion tips preaching about these sleek trends though, it can be difficult to find summer shorts inspiration for other styles. To show some love for the not-into-preppy fashionistos, here are just 2 examples of menswear shorts styles that you can rock this summer:

1) Active: A clean, basic outfit that maintains functionality while including some pattern. From playing ball, to cycling and hiking, this outfit is perfect for any outdoor activity you can think of this summer. The key is to allow movement without being baggy.
