Danielle, 27, AccountantâTheyâre fine on men. They look good. Just not at work or on a date. Not so flattering on women, though.â As it happens, we spoke with a cargo shorts-clad man who would not consent to be photographed, but proudly told us, âI actually wore camouflage-patterned cargo shorts on a first date this weekend. I even texted a friend to see if it was okay and he was like, 'Do not wear them unless youâre taking her camping.' But it was like a hundred degrees! I told her these are the only shorts I own and she didnât mind them. We planned a second date tonight and I think Iâll wear the cargo shorts again.â Why mess with perfection!
