Let Tyler, The Creator Be Your Guide To Spiritual Shorts
Tyler, the creator does it all. The 30-year-old multi-hyphenator sells arenas and his records go platinum. His creative universe has expanded beyond music to include a razor-sharp fashion brand in Golf Wang and a next-level sneaker partnership (with Converse). One constant throughout it all: his deeply specific personal style. And an sometimes overlooked – but deeply crucial – element of this style is her ability to wear a pair of shorts with the best of them.
Keep in mind that for many years shorts have only hovered on the outskirts of the cool-dude fashion world. Yes, people wear shorts every summer, but the fashion dude – the guy who refers to Rick Owens and Raf Simons by first names – avoided them like they were boot-cut jeans. (It was only three years ago that GQ made men’s fashion headlines to show off their leg: The bold new trend in pants is … shorts.) Before the big rise in shorts, you’d see the lion’s share of fashion heads in pants during hot, sweaty summers. bullets outside Pitti Uomo or rushing through the sweltering streets of Soho. Simply put: pants were more stylish than shorts. But it turns out that all you need to make shorts cool is an eye for detail and some ingenuity – or just to be Tyler, the designer. Because he can make any pair of shorts look as stylish as the strongest pants you can find – and luckily we can all learn a thing or two from him.
Case in point: he showed up at a gala at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in shorts. (For reference, Jon Hamm and John Legend both attended the same event in tuxedos, bow ties and yes … dress pants.) Tyler wore a beige pair that hit a few inches above the knee, with white knee high socks and Dr. Martens Mary Janes. Unexpected style on top? A bucket hat that match the shorts. It can also lightly dress things up, like this pleated shorts outfit with a fuzzy pink sweater vest and brown shoes. Even when Tyler is straightforward, he still manages to achieve anything but boring look. He paired black shorts with a black cardigan and crisp white tee – then threw on perhaps one of the most coveted shoes in recent memory: the totally blingy and aptly titled “Chain Loafer” from British label JW Anderson.
