Short Shorts for Lana Del Rey

There’s two types of temperatures in Miami: hot and hotter. Yes, right now we’re enjoying a nice spring, but in a blink of an eye summer will arrive and that means going outside will feel like being inside a boiling steam room. So how do you dress for 90 degree temperatures and Caribbean-style humidity? We all know girls can get away (and look amazingly chic, depending on personal style) with tiny shorts and halter tops, but what about the guys? Well, I’ve got good news – short shorts for men are all the rage right now.

In late April, I decided to dare-to-bare and give a little more leg for Lana Del Rey‘s [OMFG! INSERT SUPER FAN TWEEN GIRL BREAKDOWN HERE] concert at The Fillmore. We took a break from that god-awful waiting line, crossed the street and had an impromptu shoot at the beautiful Frank Ghery-designed New World Symphony Park. Here’s my look:

GQ: Remember when self-proclaimed well-dressed men wouldn’t dare to wear shorts in public? Consider it history.

OUT: Extra-short shorts are now becoming perfectly acceptable on the street, offering a youthful update on the “smart” bermuda shorts…

In case you were wondering, I’ve been waiting years to see Lana Del Rey in concert. Her sold-out show in South Beach was well worth the wait – simply exquisite! Hearing Ms. Del Rey’s retro, orchestral-pop sound live, and witnessing her effortless sensuality, was everything and more.
