We’ve all been there.
Pulling out last year’s shorts from your wardrobe and realising that 1) they don’t fit anymore – the gym must be working out (yeah right! More like the 12 Krispy Kremes you ate last week has added 2 inches to your waist) and 2) you must have had a mental block when you bought those hideous red shorts with little black anchors stitched all over them.
Panic sets in. “What am I going to do? It’s now 18 degrees and other than a pair of grass stained Lazio shorts I have nothing that cuts below the knee!”
Whilst we are aware that 18 degrees in the UK is classed as soaring temperature, we also recognise that you still have a few more weeks until the summer really kicks in. That leaves just enough time to grab 5 pairs of shorts you are destined to need this summer.
1. The Casuals
Ripped anything is currently on trend, so it’s no surprise that we’re finding ripped jean shorts becoming extremely popular. The distressed look of these shorts will give you an edgy look – perfect for any casual occasion throughout the summer.
2. The Sophisticated
Despite the summer months lending themselves to late evenings on the beach or feasting on BBQ food late into the evening, there are often a number of times when we need to opt for a more sophisticated look. Popping a collar on might take your fancy – especially if we’re meeting the new in laws.
Bring out the chinos. To keep your look sophisticated opt for a straight-legged chino without any turn-ups. Team these olive green shorts from penguin with an off white shirt and a pair of boats and it won’t just be your in laws that are smiling.
3. The Relaxers
Man to man, we know you love to feel comfortable. There’s nothing better than kicking back with the squad watching the last few games of the season, beer in hand and feeling free as a bird.
The original logo shorts from NICCE are the perfect candidates for this job.
4. The Swimmers
No doubt you will be spending some time hitting up the Balearic beaches, the coasts of Croatia or the seas of sunny Southend. In which case you need to make sure that your swimwear is on point. Let us bring you some swim shorts from Calvin Klein, you can’t go wrong!
5. The Under Shorts
Last but by all means not least… the most important pair of shorts of them all. The one pair of shorts you will wear everyday this year (hopefully not the same pair everyday)… your under shorts, pants, boxers or whichever name you prefer to call them.
We have a wide variety available here at standout.co.uk however we particularly enjoy this 3 pack from Armani.
Remember we still have just a few more weeks until the real summer season starts, so get yourself over to the website before you are forced to cut down your favourite pair of jeans in order to save the day!
