Shorts are versatile casual wears, playful, and fit for hot weather. They are not something to wear to work, especially when you have a big presentation. Oh well, unless you can be Pharrell Williams at the 2015 Grammys with a blazer and bow tie on shorts.
Shorts are not going out of style anytime soon. However, shorts seem flogged already. So, if you are turning up in shorts, better put some style on it. In this article, you will be learning how your shorts should fit and the best ways to style your shorts.
Tips: 5 Ways to Style Your Shorts
Two-Piece Matching Sets with Shorts
You would not commonly go wrong with a two-piece matching set with shorts. The fun comes with the set’s pattern and the type of top. With a button-down loose-fitting shirt, you could leave a couple of buttons open at the top. You could wear a plain round-neck under it. You can rock a plain two-piece matching set of a sweatshirt and shorts or something with a subtle pattern.
If you want to play it safe, monochrome always comes to the rescue. First, unlearn the misconception that monochrome means shades of white, grey, and black. Monochrome refers to two shades of the same color – any color. Set out in monochrome and look effortlessly classy. You may use neutral-colored footwear to complete the look
Patterned Short-Sleeve Shirt on Plain Shorts
Show up at a gathering looking sweet in a neatly patterned free button-down short-sleeve shirt. Earn the spotlight rocking plain shorts with length a little above the knees. To avoid color matching errors, opt for black or grey shorts. If you will be out in the sun, add a hat and sun shades. Opt for this only if you have money. You cannot be looking like a million bucks and not act it.
Unless Pharrell Williams or David Beckham is the one reading this, Denim shorts are a risky choice. It is very easy to look unkempt in poorly-styled denim. So, first, don’t think of wearing flip-flops on denim shorts. Consider canvas, loafers, boat shoes, plimsolls, and maybe, Birkenstock sandals. Make sure the denim shorts don’t cross your knees.
A Shirt on a Chinos Short
Get the supreme balance between being casual and stylish when you step out this way. Consider rolling up the sleeves of your plain or patterned long-sleeve shirt on top of some nice chino shorts. No, the shorts should not be baggy. Opt for neutral-colored chino shorts that would go well with a black or brown belt and a pair of sneakers to match.
