Tips to Look Good in Shorts

  • Choose shorts as per your body type

Albeit basic, factoring in your specific body type is a thing that people either neglect or don’t consider while shopping for shorts or any apparel!

Men’s legs come in all different sorts of shapes and sizes; so, prefer to find a pair of shorts that suits your legs and not what seems to be attractive.

  • Wear shorts in a monochrome outfi

The simplest trick in the hat to elevate your style whilst wearing a short outfit is by clubbing it with a top in a monochromatic color scheme. 

  • Embrace colors in short

Men often don’t prefer bright colors when choosing shorts. But in our limited experience, we reckon that all men should embrace simple colors in their clothing- but with care. 

When choosing the right shorts for you, experiment with different colors and even solid shades. However, avoid big colors unless you have the style to carry them off!

  • Experiment with different fabric

Whenever we think shorts, we think cotton. Cotton is great as a fabric, and we even offer it at our shop online! But, if you want people to turn their heads, then we’d suggest you experiment with different fabrics; for instance- linen. 

Linen is extremely breathable and lightweight. Similar to cotton, it wrinkles too, but wrinkles in linen look chic and stylish. 

  • Club it with a short sleeve shirt

When it comes to wearing shorts, our go-to preference is to club it with a solid polo or a simple t-shirt. But, wearing them with short sleeve button-down will make you look a little better; giving an impression that you have given some thought to your outfit. 


Whether you like it or not, at some point or the other, you ought to wear a pair of shorts. Our aim with this article is to help you decide and pick the best pair of shorts that make you look stylish and comfortable.
