Opening Ceremony x Warriors of Radness “Beach Crew!” collection

I love the fresh, day- faded pastels of Opening Ceremony x Warriors of Radness “Beach Crew!” Collection. However, that said I can’t help but feel these shorts will only work on super skinny model types. Unlike some, I have no issues with men wearing shorts… but it is all about the length, and well short shorts just aren’t a good …
