A great pair of casual shorts are a summer wardrobe must-have, allowing you to stay cool during hot days and balmy nights. In this guide, we’ll provide advice for finding a pair that fits well and suits your style.

Getting the right size and fit

With so many colours and styles to choose from, the question is: what are the best casual shorts? Men come in all shapes and sizes, so it’s important to find a pair of shorts that suits your physique. If your thighs are quite muscular, steer clear of slim-fit shorts. On the flip side, if you have a slender build, avoid wide, oversized shorts. Ideally, your shorts should follow the outline of your legs without being too tight or baggy.

In terms of length, a good pair of shorts should end a few centimetres above your knees. If you’re of average height, a 7” or 9” inseam length is should fit you well. Alternatively, if you’ve been hitting the gym and want to show off your toned thighs, choose shorts with a 5” inseam.

Is it appropriate to wear casual shorts to work?

Whether or not you can wear shorts to the office depends on a number of factors. If your office environment is informal and relaxed, there’s a good chance you can wear shorts to work. However, if everyone around you is wearing long pants and collared shirts, it’s probably best to save your shorts for holidays and weekends. Browse our full range of men’s clothing to find ensembles to suit every workplace.

How to style men’s casual shorts

Cargo shorts have made a comeback in recent times, which is great news for anyone who likes the convenience of having multiple pockets! Keep the look casual by pairing with a simple t-shirt and a plain pair of low top sneakers.

Denim casual shorts are perfect for summer barbeques, picnics in the park or attending your next music festival. Pair with a colourful casual shirt and some sneakers to complete the look.

Finally, chino shorts are good for a smart casual dress code in summer. They are typically made from a lightweight and breathable material (making it comfortable to wear in hot weather) and have a more polished and structured look than other types of shorts. Chino shorts can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.
