My friend says baggy shorts and cargos aren't fashionable.
Baggy shorts bad?

I've seen cargos done right, but it's tough. Minimalist pockets and a great fit are a must. Pretty sure you'd have to be a fashion designer to pull off baggy shorts. It all depends what you're going for really, but I'm going to err on the side of saying your shorts probably look sloppy. Show them knees.
And just because people compliment something doesn't mean it's fashionable.
