How to wear: Shorts

August 2022

As the weather gets hotter, we all know it's then time to break out the shorts! However, whilst 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 of shorts around and how to style them for any occasion.




Chino shorts were the look of last summer and we have it on good authority that they'll be the star of the show again. This versatile style of short is a winner for virtually any situation, whether it's hanging out with mates or heading to a formal occasion. Did you know that in countries with hot climates chino shorts are often worn to business meetings? For 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.



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 breathability. Loafers are a great pairing with denim shorts when going for a look that’s comfortable yet stylish, or if you’re wanting to go more casual - you can grab a pair of retro trainers such as some stylish adidas ones. 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 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 big and bold t-shirt or hoodie for that all important effortless athleisure look. When the temperature demands a cooler style, these also work great with a classic pair of flip-flops or sliders.



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 you're looking to carry some cargo in your shorts why not pair them with a white polo and boat shoes for a classic look. For the days you need to catch some rays, be sure to grab a tank and round off the look with some fashionable flip-flops. So why not check out our range of cargo shorts for men, where you can expand your style without burning a hole in your pocket and pick up a pair for as little as £8.99.

They can range from super casual styles to lounge about the house and garden in, or opt for the more fashionable pair to hit the shops. Pair these with a super simple tee and you’re onto a winner.



Whatever sport you’re getting involved in, make sure you have the perfect pair of performance shorts, for less. Performance shorts are great for running, hitting the gym or even getting that last minute cycle in on the hot days. Pair it with the perfect sports bra and lightweight vest and you’ll be ready for your workout.
