Tips for Men Wearing Shorts in Summer

Finally, Summer is upon us. For adult men, summer shots often create questions bigger than “should I wear a sweater over this” and “will I be warm enough in shorts, or should I wear jeans?” For many, a casual-yet-styled summer look creates conflict between being too casual and just “too much.”

Here are a few tips that have worked well with guys we’ve worked.

Tip 1:

Shorts do not belong in any formal setting or professional office unless you are in the Bahamas. Shorts should only be used for outdoor functions, vacations, beaches, or weekend road trip.

Tip 2:

Do not wear visible socks with shorts unless they are part of a uniform or you are headed to the gym.

Tip 3:

Beware of the color of your underwear and pattern if you are wearing white or light-colored shorts. Blues, reds, and purples often show through and create unwanted distractions!

Tip 4:

Avoid wearing athletic shorts, biking shorts, or anything beyond their intended function.

Tip 5:

The shorts length you choose should be based on your body and proportions. The length is better, not shorter than an inch above the knee.
