How to style men’s chino shorts

Pro tip, always wear a high-quality belt with your chino shorts. Whether you’re tucking in your shirt or letting it hang loose, a decent belt can make your shorts look tailored and neat. If you want to play it safe, opt for chino shorts in sophisticated muted tones like beige, navy, olive green, or grey. These colours never go out of style and can easily be paired with various tops and accessories. Even though shorts tend to be a summer look, don't be afraid to layer: a lightweight cardigan or an open shirt over a plain white tee can add extra style points to your outfit. Accessorise with a smart wristwatch, sunglasses or a Panama hat for an added touch of sophisticated. Lastly, footwear can make or break your outfit. For a casual day look that still looks put-together, stick to white trainers or boat shoes, and for a more formal setting, suede loafers are a wise choice.

Fresh ways to style men’s jersey shorts

Embrace the sporty appeal of our oversized jersey shorts. Team them with a retro-inspired polo shirt (like this green striped option) or hooded sweatshirt, and complete the outfit with a pair of high-top sneakers and a baseball cap. If you want to elevate the look, pair your shorts with a crisp white tee and throw on a blazer. Light-coloured blazers work well for day whereas darker shades offer a smarter vibe for early evening. Jersey shorts are also perfect for a holiday by the beach. Combine them up them with revere-collar shirts in head-turning graphic prints and a pair of flip-flops. Sunglasses and a mojito add the final flourish.

How to wear men’s swimming shorts beyond the beach

Get innovative with your summer wardrobe and let your swim shorts make a stylish splash outside of the local swimming pool. Opt for a tropical palm-print pair for an effortless way to inject holiday vibes into your everyday wardrobe. For a casual daytime look, partner your swim shorts with a simple T-shirt or linen shirt, comfortable slider sandals and a trendy reversible bucket hat. This combination is perfect for a barbeque at the park or playing cards with a beer at a beachside bar. Don’t forget to load up on a high SPF sunscreen when exposing skin to the summer sun, reapplying regularly after swimming and towel-drying.
