New Internet Fashion Trend: Gym Shorts Dresses for Men


The Daily Dot explains the internet's latest fashion trend:

While most of America spent Sunday watching football, Breaking Bad, or The Newsroom, more than two dozen Reddit users were busy transforming oversized gym shorts into form-fitting dresses.

The latest fashion trend took off late Sunday night after one redditor posted the following how-to Imgur album on Reddit's r/funny forum.

The one short option (above), or the two short option (below). More here.

  2. The real travesty here is that gym shorts are long enough to be able to be turned into dresses. They are called "shorts" for a reason and they need to go back to being short.

  3. Umm, no. Ain't gonna happen.

  4. So true! -- "The real travesty here is that gym shorts are long enough to be able to be turned into dresses. They are called "shorts" for a reason and they need to go back to being short."

  5. That reminds me of those horrible skant uniforms from early episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

  9. That's quite a warped mind that figure that out. Are those straight guys drinking too much beer?

  10. Can we all pause for a moment and admire the guns on the guy in the top pic? YUM.

  11. Grey Gardens and the spirit of Little Edie lives on! You just have to wear them with conviction.

  13. Straight guys are doing this? Really?

  14. HOT. Especially the one in the second photo. But, have to agree with Anon's comment above; I like my shorts short.

  15. @Ernie, the revolutionary costume for today, you understand.

  16. I love the internet.

  17. I can't wait to wear this to the office, talk about the ultimate outfit for casual fridays, a total day and evening look!

  18. On the downside: they look ridiculous

    On the upside: easy access to... stuff

  19. No, these are all WAY too long! What's wrong with a more diminutive short Scottish kilt? (Yes, there are some.) Or better yet the short tunics worn in ancient Greece or Rome. A period Franco Fellini film. The petite tunics worn in a gladiator movies or two, or a film like Oliver Stone's "Alexander" has some clothes that reveal more then they conceal. Even an old futuristic science-fiction film that I saw as a kid and I swear was not gay, even though I wished it otherwise at the time comes to mind. It has to be a garment that barely covers kind of short. Yeah!

  20. Gym shorts are already dresses.

    In the 70s, shorts were short.

  21. Upskirts, or it didn't happen.

  23. Well hello sexy!

  24. Red black and blue is very convincing. Which is why he's probably the straight one and Mr. Guns is the "man I was so drunk" bottom.
