Just in case you need another reminder that it’s his world and we’re just living in it, one Harry Styles just pulled off the fit of the fall … in shorts. The pop star was photographed out on the town in NYC on Sunday morning sporting a vivid pink hoodie and some sporty Vuori Kore shorts. It’s a departure from his typical Gucci-muse on-stage style, but a welcome one; it shows us normal folk that Mr. Styles is just like us, albeit a more sexually charged and charismatic version, with physics-defying locks and copious amounts of so-terrible-it’s-hot ink. We’re fans, you understand. 

In his deep generosity, Hazza has all the answers for our fall style quandaries. For instance: can we wear hoodies and shorts in public? Answer: absolutely. Is it okay for men to rock pink? Do you even have to ask? Are accessories the secret spice of life? The tote, man, look at the tote! Seldom does double-time slouch work, but Harry clearly knows that relaxed on relaxed has its place. It’s a fine line between schlubby and a harmonic convergence of slouch, and our typically high-waisted king walks the tightrope immaculately. The shorts are what really make the outfit: just the right length, with plenty of stretch but a chic, performance-based design. Plus, a liner and internal drawcord means comfort and snugness are non-negotiables and fully customizable.
