Trending Styles: The perfect shorts for the summer ahead
With the sun shining we are already thinking about the best way to stay cool and look good this summer. Here's some shorts we think will do the trick.
The Irish male and short trousers have a long and chequered history. Some of our predecessors had to wear them to school, putting them off ever wearing shorts for life, while many men still just throw on the nearest pair of GAA knicks before heading to the beach.
But with shorts increasingly being worn in all sorts of places, not just the beach or the gym, here are a few pairs that will look just as good on the streets as by the pool.
We should all wear more colour and summer shorts are the ideal way to start. The smart contrast turn ups by Goodsouls (€32) are a great way to brighten up your wardrobe.
If you want to be a bit more conservative, this nifty cotton pair of brown shorts by French Connection (€45) are perfect for everyone who wants to wear shorts but remain sharp.
Blue is a great colour on everyone so the slim cut pair by Superdry (€64) are a great staple for your summer look. And don't overlook denim shorts, because if they are done right, like this pair by Jack and Jones (€45), they can go with virtually any shirt or t-shirt.
If you are going to take a dip, then these swimming shorts by adidas (€34) are as good as you'll get and, if you are staying on dry land, then these classic chino shorts by Goodsouls are great value at €22.
Those are a few great options to get the latest styles into your wardrobe, but there's plenty more available from our mates over at Littlewoods Ireland who have all the latest trends at great prices.
