Madras check shorts needn’t be brashly coloured. This pair combines tasteful blue and pink pastels for an altogether softer look. Team with a pastel T-shirt in tone with the shorts.
Stand out amidst a sea of navy tailored shorts with this eye-catching pair. Emblazoned with luminous florals, simply wear with a crisp white shirt and let the flowers do the talking.
J Crew is known for its successful take on the urban wardrobe of the stylish gent. The washed-out feel of this stripy pair of shorts is pretty much perfect wherever you decide to wear them.
Make the most of the sales and invest in these statement shorts. They’ll see you through any number of high-profile summer events, or dress to impress at the obligatory barbecues.
Yellow shorts are probably best saved for when you’ve managed to work up a bit of a tan. These ones are made from lightweight cotton, so are perfect for keeping cool in warmer climes.
These pale pink shorts from French Connection come with a button fastening and a zip fly and are 100 per cent cotton. Wear with a fine-knit polo shirt and loafers in understated Italian style.
These traditional shorts by Margaret Howell, purveyor of all things wonderfully English, are made to last. They will work with almost anything you choose to sport, smart or casual.
A loud print on a pair of shorts is nothing new. But to find it done so tastefully on the high street is a rarity. Topman calls this print “jungle” – with a white shirt they’ll fit in perfectly in the urban one.
The cut of these shorts will sit somewhere on the upper thigh, so you’ll need to be blessed with a good pair of legs. Balance out the abstract print with a navy polo shirt and a pair of Persol shades.
Wearing tailored shorts with a front pleat and busy print isn’t for everyone, but Jonathan Saunders doesn’t design for withering wallflowers. These savvy shorts are perfect for a summer wedding.
