If you’re looking to look stylish this summer, over the knee shorts should most definitely be avoided. Men’s fashion has come a long way over the last decade and these days it’s all about mens designer shorts. Below you’ll discover the top 5 shorts you should be investing in to keep you cool this summer.


1. ‘Short’ shorts

According to the fashion world, ‘short’ shorts are one staple every well-built man should have in his wardrobe this summer. As highlighted on Slate.com, these shorts can help men fight against sexism. If you’re not afraid to show a little more skin then these are great for showing off those muscular legs, as well as keeping you cool in the hot weather. Granted, this won’t be a style everyone is comfortable with, but if you are looking for something a little more daring then this is a look that you should be aiming for.

2. Khaki shorts

If there’s one style of shorts that absolutely every man should own it is khaki’s. Khaki shorts are casual, airy and they go with practically anything. Just like the little black dress is an essential in any woman’s wardrobe, khaki shorts are an essential for men. They also save you time in a morning when you’re rushing to get ready. Simply throw on any t-shirt and it’s more than likely it will go well with the shorts.

3. Knitted shorts

Ok so this is one of the newer shorts trends you might be wary of. Knitted shorts are ideal for those slightly cooler days. Not only are they a little warmer, but they also provide a unique look. They’re extremely comfortable and come in a range of colour options. Make sure you choose a designer brand and you’re guaranteed to look super-stylish this summer.

4. Cargo shorts

Cargo shorts are the only exception to the ‘strictly no over the knee’ short rule. They often fall just below the knee and they have an exceptionally stylish design. They have been popular since the late 1990’s and they’re ideal for all casual occasions. Men who aren’t huge fans of shorts will prefer this option. There’s also the advantage that they typically come with a lot of pockets. So there’s plenty of space to keep everything in.

5. Tailored shorts

Just so you have a pair of shorts to match all occasions, you should always have a tailored pair available. They have a slightly tighter fit and can look great at formal occasions. Perhaps you’re going out to dinner with your partner? If it’s a really hot day, tailored shorts will help to keep you cool while enabling you to still look smart.

  2. I don't know that much about male fashion. I have never heard of knitted shorts before, It'll be interesting to see whether the trend takes off.

  3. My boyfriend has such a hard time buying shorts these days.. He also finds them too tight, he prefers long and baggy. Trends aren't always good. Loving the Bathing Ape t-shirt!
