When summer hits and jeans are sweltering, chinos are sweat inducing, and you feel hot just looking at a pair of joggers, shorts can end up being your one and only saviour. Despite the fact that they can get a bit of a bad rep, men's shorts worn properly can really elevate your look and help you achieve a perfect laid back summer look. The best shorts tend to reach the knee or just above it, keeping you cool but avoiding the swim shorts look. Try a pair of twill, chino shorts and see how lightweight and comfortable they are, as well as how easy they are to match with smarter looking apparel likeOxford shirts. You can easily grab a pair from brands likeFarah,The Idle Man, andDickies, for a price that won’t leave you reeling.
If twill isn’t your thing, go for classic denim shorts in a slim fit design. Brands likeLevi's, that excel in denim wear, offer a range of colour choices, but a light blue denim can help give a nice summery vibe to your look. Having a few different options to pick and choose from can help liven up your wardrobe and keep you well dressed throughout the spring and summer months.
