Men's shorts are a key piece for the summer wardrobe. Whether you are looking for light fabrics, such as linen and nylon, or thicker textiles in the style of short cargo pants and cotton pieces, shorts are essential when it comes to the hot months of July and August. Wear them with an open shirt to look casual or get a tailored pair to bring them into work. Below-the-knee lengths suit tall men, Bermuda-style shorts add a touch of old-school style. A few pairs of designer shorts will add style to your wardrobe, for a quick style fix. Wear them with trainers to look low-key, flip-flops for a distinctly holiday vibe or with a pair of smart loafers to smarten up your look.
When to wear
Although shorts may once have seemed casual, you can now get all sorts of styles, cuts, colours and fabrics to suit your lifestyle. Wear them out with friends, over the weekend to lounge in or sharp cuts to work, during the heat wave. They lend themselves equally well to beach holidays as city lifestyle. Choose longer lengths to ward off the chills of spring, with some excellent denim pieces to team up with stripy tops to look every bit the Riviera gentleman. Mid-length styles will help you give off a laid-back look. V-neck T-shirts and shorts combos are particularly popular at the moment, at work and for play. Large checked prints will give off an impression of a toned body, whereas a smaller check will give you a European air. Both are suitable for casual/smart meetings.
Linen and weaved cotton styles lend themselves well to the office environment. Plain shorts work best here, with a range of colours on offer this season. Dark blues compliment light shirts, whereas reds and maroons look beguiling on tanned skin. Choose checked shorts if you fancy making a statement - some brilliant tailored styles will work well on day outings, whereas longer, cargo-style shorts are perfect for lounging about in or to undertake outdoor sports. A great pair of khaki shorts are an essential part for any man's summer wardrobe. Team with a smart shirt to dress them up, or a casual T-shirt to dress them down for a relaxing day out.
Shorts are a brilliant item to take on holiday or wear out in the warmer nights back home. Darker coloured shorts, in a range of textiles and fabrics (from sheer to opaque, light weave to thicker styles) can make your outfit stand out; team with your favourite T-shirt or shirt to really pull off the look. Checked prints look great on most body shapes and can make an outfit, when worn with a plain top. Vest tops also work well with longer length shorts, to show off your toned body from head to toe. Chino shorts are most attractive when teamed up with trainers or flip-flops for a casual look.
