3 Stylish Ways to Wear Shorts for Men

LONG STORY SHORT. The message for this summer is simple: Pants, who needs ‘em? Shorts are definitely on the list of this year’s must-try summer sins

 

3 ways to wear short shorts for men-2

 

 

1. A DASH OF COLOR

Let your soft-toned shirt peek from behind a closed vest and finish the look with a cross-body bag.

 

 

2. SPECIALTIES OF THE SEASON

Gray checked blazer and olive shirts are made for summertime, and go extremely well paired with your shorts.

 

 

3. LEGGING IT

Be the envy of fellow commuters in this polished look: Summer shorts over leggings, then let it blend in with a pair of sneakers.

 

 

DOS:
• MIND THE HEIGHT

Remember that longer shorts create the effect of shorter legs, while short shorts make your legs appear longer, giving the impression of height.

• COLOR-BLOCK
If you want to have a bit of fun with your wardrobe, pair brightly hued shorts with equally bright tops of a contrasting color to create a stylish combination.

• TUCK-IT IN (for low-waisted shorts only)
If you’re wearing low-waisted shorts, tuck your shirt in to raise your waistline and elongate your stomach.

 

 

DON’TS:
• WEAR PRINTS FROM HEAD-TO-TOE

Patterned shorts should never, ever be worn with a matching top. While it may look great on the runway, it can come off as freaky on the streets.

• WEAR WHITE SOCKS
Picking the right pair of socks to go with your short can be the key to a perfect look, but pulled-up white socks is a definite no-no.

• SHOW UP FOR WORK WITH ONE
Unless you work in the creative part of the fashion industry or on the beach, wearing shorts on the job is more than just a huge fashion faux-pas.

 

 
A VERY SHORT TIP ON SHORTS
Build a look that will stand out by finding the right fixings for your shorts: a shirt, a cool bomber jacket and dress shoes.
