How to wear men’s short shorts this spring

Summertime calls for the liberating experience of wearing shorts and the men’s spring 2014 fashion trends call for shorter styles perhaps as a natural response to the rising temperatures.

Lindsey Wixson after Chanel Couture

Lindsey Wixson has a kind of cuteness that shines through regardless of what she’s wearing. A high ponytail bouncing atop her head and the winged liner from the Chanel couture show gave something extra to her simple winter outfit of a classic navy coat and maroon skinny jeans when these shots were taken in Paris.

The jumpsuit & Joana

Some vintage finds are so good they need little else to turn them into a fully-blown, fashion week-ready outfit. A slinky navy blue jumpsuit with a deep plunging neckline is one of them.

Off duty archenemy: Andrew Scott

I’ll confess that when I stopped Andrew Scott for this portrait I didn’t know his real name.
