How to Wear Shorts Shop Shorts How to Wear Shorts

How to wear shorts. Ah, the dreaded summer question. We’ve spent so long in our jeans and jackets that the thought of getting into a pair of shorts is absolutely baffling to us (‘Huh? These trousers are broken’). We’ve recruited the help of fashion expert La Touché, constantly shot by the likes of Vogue and GQ, and fashion brand consultant, to help guide you in the task of what to wear with your shorts.

LA TOUCHÉ IS A MAN PASSIONATE ABOUT HIS HATS. SO MUCH SO THAT HE HAS HIS OWN BLOG, HAT ABOUT TOWN, DEDICATED TO STREET STYLE SHOTS OF HATS: “I JUST WANT HATS TO BE LOVED AND SEEN AS SOMETHING MORE EPIC THAN JUST AN ACCESSORY,” STATES LA TOUCHÉ. “HATS HAVE THE POWER TO TRANSFORM A PERSON’S ENTIRE LOOK, YOU CAN HAVE FIVE DIFFERENT OUTFITS AND ONE HAT…THE ONE HAT CAN CHANGE EACH OUTFIT. I WANT HATS TO BE LOVED AGAIN LIKE THEY WERE IN THE ‘50S.”

Smart

 

What? There’s a smart way to wear shorts? You bet your sweet chicken legs. Pair a light blue Oxford blazer with some pale blue shorts (they don’t have to be exactly the same colour) and a crisp short sleeve white shirt. Ta-dah, you’re ready to hit the polo club, Gatsby.

 

 

Casual

 

Camo shorts are the must have summer short for casual style. You can just wear it with a plain white tee, or if you’re feeling adventurous, combine with a colourful clashing pattern t-shirt to stand out. These need to be in your suitcase come holiday time, whether you’re with the lads or the other half.

 

Grunge

 

Black denim shorts are an all-rounder; they practically go with anything. We’ve chosen to go for a rock look here as tartan is going to be a massive trend thanks to the grunge revival. You’ll be able to use the shirt come winter time too, as it’d be easy to dress up smart with a black blazer and trousers.

 

What shoes to wear with these shorts? Dr Martens, of course!

 

 

Festival

 

Festival fashion should be about wearing something utterly outrageous (no, not nothing). This cut and sew style clashing shirt matches well with these washed denim shorts and brown belt. Don’t worry about getting them dirty, the light wash shorts will look good with a bit of wear and tear!
