We live in a country that endures summers almost all the time, and where most of us would simply hate to wear anything more than some light shorts through the year. Our shared history and society’s mutually agreed mores usually mean that we can’t dress as we please for risk of appearing ungroomed or worse.
Luckily, it is the twenty-first century and attitudes are changing. We’ve been experimenting with permutations and combinations of looks with shorts that are just formal enough for any occasion. From the crew neck or the polo to pairing with sneakers, sandals, or loafers.
We recommend muted colors for exercising, corporate shades for work, brights for times with friends, and perky collegiate ones for quick outings around the city. Keep switching between your choice of footwear and accessories to fit the bill.
Designers the world over have spent the better part of a decade trying to mainstream looks with shorts for all times of day and night. So drop your inhibitions (and your trousers) and jump in to the short bandwagon.
