The ideal way to maintain your standard of clothing even when the temperatures are rising is to rely on tailored shorts, an essential addition for the modern man’s summer wardrobe. Before you choose your pair of tailored shorts you have to ask yourself if showing legs is ok for the dress code of the place where you wear them!
How to wear tailored shorts
Able to meet different occasions, tailored shorts are really good in the summer. The ideal pair perfectly adapted to waist, is slim (not skinny!) on thigh, it ends a few centimeters above the knee and it is made with breathable fabrics, perfects for hot weather.
To create a look that is sophisticated look without exaggeration just combine the shorts with a solid color t-shirt and a light blazer – if they are in similar colors and materials, it will create a short dress effect, that is not a female trend!
Which tailored shorts you have to choose
In terms of color, you can opt for sartorial shorts with neutral tones, but to keep the look more classic, black (despite the high temperatures) can give greater attention to your clothing, also adding a more relaxed streetwear aspect thanks to the use of sneakers.
The alternative to black can be the pinstripe: even if it is related to bankers or gangsters, this classic motif can be relaxed and contemporary, creating a smart and summer look. In this post you can see, for example, the Lightintebox tailored shorts.
So, showing your personality with clothing during the summer is complicated, but surrendering without insisting it is even more!
