18/05/2016

As the weather gets hotter it's time to break out the shorts! However, while shorts are unmatched in terms of comfort, they can often be difficult to style. Below, we take a look at some of the best styles and how to wear them...

CHINO

Chino shorts were the look of last summer and we have it on good authority that they'll be the look this one too. This versatile short style is applicable to virtually any situation, whether it's hanging out with mates or heading to a formal occasion. Did you know in countries with hot climates chino shorts are often worn to business meetings? To a more smart-casual vibe, pair your chino shorts with a buttoned down shirt. When the mood calls for a more relaxed style, opt for a pocket tee or white polo.

DENIM

No matter the time of year, denim is a wardrobe staple for men. For an incredibly casual piece, stick with denim shorts, slightly above the knee, for ultimate comfort and breezability. Loafers work great with denim shorts but so do trainers such as these stylish adidas Gazelles. When it comes to your top half you've really got three options: Tee, Tank or Polo. Whichever you choose, stick to light colours to contrast with your darker coloured shorts.

JERSEY

Jersey shorts are primarily designed for sports in hotter climates but thanks to the wonderful world of casual fashion, these comfy shorts are now acceptable to wear in most settings. Perfect for lounging on hot days, jersey shorts work best with a plain Tee or hoody for that all important 'just worked out' look. When the temperature demands a cooler style, these also work great with flip-flops

CARGO

As we all know, cargo shorts have their fair share of haters, but just like all controversial fashion items, when worn right, cargo shorts can't be beaten. If your looking to carry some cargo in your shorts why not pair with a white Polo and boat shoes for a classic look. Pair these black cargo shorts with a Superdry T-shirt to be the envy of your mates! For the days you need to catch some rays why not grab this Fred & Boston tank and pair with a pair of flip-flops?
