In most places, the weather is getting warmer, the sun is starting shine brighter and you can almost hear birds chirping (except here in New York). Spring has just about sprung. With the new season comes all the pleasures of warm weather like sunglasses and shorts.
Shorts are a tricky fashion statement though. Many women have a love-hate relationship with them: They love the way they keep their legs cool, but hate how they make said legs look. But for most women, there is a flattering pair of shorts out there for them.
For a real reason to hate shorts, look no further than men who sport them. We’re all for equal opportunity here at For Ladies By Ladies, but when it comes to pasty male thighs burning our retinas, we draw the line. And yet there’s always that guy somewhere who thinks this alarmingly high hemline is a good look. Designers only make it worse by continuing to design them and call it fashion.

I will not make a comment about him being blind, and instead I’ll blame Runner’s World who dressed him for this feature.
No comment needed.
Okay, maybe these aren’t quite the trendsetters of the celebrity world, but that doesn’t give them a “Get Out of Fashion Hell Free” card either.
