Trend Alert: Shorts over Leggings for Male Idols


It may not be the biggest trend out there, but it's definitely a trend- male idols wearing loose-fitting shorts over leggings.  Love it or hate it, it doesn't seem to be going anywhere any time soon... let's take a look at who's wearing this style!

B1A4's CNU

CNU's been wearing shorts with leggings ever since his 2011 debut. On the far right, you can see him in a dressy, black-on-black version of the look that he wore to the 'I Need a Fairy' press conference in February 2012.

SHINee's Key and Taemin

In March, Key and Taemin of SHINee brought us their own versions of the shorts and leggings look. While Key tended to opt for patterned shorts with boxy cuts over solid leggings, Taemin was more adventureous. On the left, you can see very baggy grey shorts over sparkly leggings, and next to that you can see him with checkerboard-patterned shorts over striped leggings. It's hard to see in still photos, but if you watch the dance practice video for Sherlock, you'll see that Taemin was actually wearing long, asymmetrical, white shorts over white leggings.

NU'EST's Ren

Ren has tried many variations on the shorts and leggings combo, starting with his debut in the MV for "Face". On the far left, you can see him walking the runway in a fashion show in April 2012.

JJ Project's Jr

Jr. of JJ Project has been wearing two different pairs of black shorts over black leggings- one with pink and blue designs on the front, and one with a red and white striped inset.

B.A.P's Jongup, Super Junior's Sungmin and Shindong

Showing that this trend is still current, Jongup wore black-on-black shorts and leggings to a recent performance on 'Show Champion', while Sungmin did a white-on-white style, and Shindong did black-on-black in the recent MV for "Sexy, Free and Single".


What do you think? Would you wear shorts and leggings together?
