The Haute Écriture Guide to Men’s Shorts

It’s almost Summer which means you’ll be wearing a lot of shorts and dressing casually. A couple of months ago I wrote an article called “How to Look Sharp While Dressing Casually” in which I went over the basics of men’s casual clothing. I talked about the fit of your clothing, shirts, shoes, and more. I didn’t talk about shorts, though. So, today I’m going to give you a guide to men’s shorts.

Wear Slim Fit to Classic Fit Shorts

This is the most important tip on this list. You should always wear slim fit or classic fit shorts. Slim fits shorts look a lot more sharp than classic fit shorts but classic fit shorts are still slim enough to look good. Your shorts should not be too wide or too slim. They should compliment the shape of your body and your attractive attributes as well.

6 Inch to 8 Inch Inseams Look Best

When you wear shorts, wear some that have an inseam of 6 inches to 8 inches. Your shorts should be above or at the knee. Shorts with a 6 inch inseam are very short and are a lot more casual than shorts with an 8 inch inseam.


Wear Classic Colors

Wear white, beige, brown, navy, grey, and black shorts. These colors look the best when you wear shorts and they are classic. If you wear any other colors, wear something that compliments your skin tone and wear pastel colors. Also, shorts that are in pastel colors are a lot more casual than shorts that are in classic colors.

Get Some Casual Leather Shoes or Slip On Shoes

In my guide to looking sharp while dressing casually I said that you should invest in some casual leather shoes as well as some canvas slip on shoes or even perforated leather slip ons. Casual leather shoes or slip on shoes go well with shorts and look better than wearing some flip flops. Invest in some loafers, moccasins, or some Lacoste slip ons.

Those are my tips for men’s shorts. You should wear slim fit to classic fit shorts and shorts with a 6 inch to 8 inch inseam. Also, you should wear classic or pastel colors as well as some casual leather shoes or slip ons.
