Shorts are an essential part of any modern man’s wardrobe. Traditionally only for summer wear, shorts are now seen as a year-round stylish look, adding to or becoming the centre piece of your outfit.

Shorts now fit all occasions and men in different walks of life, according to GQ magazine: https://www.gq.com/story/shorts-for-men-fashion-week-2018. Whether it is your fancy chino shorts for smarter occasions, jean shorts for the chill and casual look, your cargo shorts for your outdoor activities or your swim shorts for a lazy day by the pool, shorts are the perfect fashion accessory for any modern man.

What Belt to Wear?

Belts are key to styling your mens Superdry shorts and are more than just to keep your shorts up. This is especially key with chinos or denim shorts. With chinos you are looking for a stylish belt that is not too large so that it does not take away from your shorts. A black or dark brown leather belt with a classic golden or silver buckle will go best. For denim shorts, you really want to show your style. Why not add a retro or rustic buckled belt? Cargo shorts can also go well with belts. Usually, they go best with a more casual-looking or woven belt with clips. Swim shorts should not be worn with a belt, and their ties should be tied neatly to show your style.

What Else to Wear with Your Shorts?

In terms of shoes, you should try to not wear anything too clunky or large, as these can distract from your mens Superdry shorts. Trainers fit well with denim shorts, while smarter black polished or leather brown shoes should be worn with chinos. Flip-flops can be worn with swim shorts, and cargo shorts can be paired with small boots to really show off that rugged look. You now can find your perfect pair of shorts online at major clothing stores such as EJ Menswear.

Your shirt should also match your shorts. T-shirts and casual polos add style to denim shorts, while chinos should be worn with a smarter well-ironed shirt. Cargo shorts pair well with long-sleeved t-shirts, while swim shorts can be worn with just about anything.
