Menswear: how to wear shorts

3 easy ways to style up this summer’s coolest shorts for him.

This time last year, we put two editors head-to-head to argue their case for wearing shorts to the office and since, your summer shorts dilemmas have flooded into Tu HQ. Here’s the three must-wear styles of the season and some easy outfit inspiration too.

Tu clothing, blue shirt, denim shorts

When it’s too hot to wear your everyday jeans, denim turn-ups make the most obvious replacement. In pale blue denim, this pair from Tu feels totally appropriate for summer – match with a coordinating palm print shirt for the ideal beach to bar outfit.

Cargo shorts – aka the marmite of men’s fashion – have got a pretty bad reputation but this year they’ve been given a much-needed refresh with streamlined pockets and a sleeker shape. Don’t believe us? Just take this tan pair from Tu… try with a monochrome printed shirt and navy trainers for an immediate dose of cool.

Tu clothing, navy stripe t-shirt, blue shirt, cream shorts

Chino shorts will never (and we mean never) do you wrong. The ultimate option for work and home, Tu’s sharp pair will add instant polish (plus they come in loads of colours so you can wear a different pair every day of the week!). We like this cream pair teamed with a blue chambray shirt layered over a striped tee. Simple.
