1 Summer Shorts, 3 Summer Styles

By Fashion Writer: Wei Ni Lee

Living in Malaysia, there are a few certainties in life. It is either raining and the hem of your long pants & shoes are soaked, or it’s so hot you’re wishing you didn’t put on your long pants.

A pair of shorts is a classic staple in any man’s wardrobe. Particularly if you’re living in the tropics where it is Summer all year round! Aside from your regular t-shirts, shorts & flip flops combo we show you 3 different looks you can achieve with one simple pair of shorts.

For this post, we chose a neutral light tan coloured shorts for a relaxed Summer vibe. I’ve always found that wearing light colours really help to brighten up your look & give it a more daytime appeal, plus it helps keep you cool!

#1 We wanted to go with something that can be worn at night for a slightly formal event.

We chose a dark navy long sleeve button down with monochromatic floral sleeves & intricate striped button details.

The dark wash of colour sets off the light tan shorts perfectly, giving it a darker & more edgy yet still put together vibe.

#2 Going down the more casual road, because hey, there ain’t anything wrong with being casual and comfy. 🙂

Instead of just throwing on your favourite ratty old t-shirt, pick one out that fits a little better and put on a loose fit denim jacket over it.

By keeping the sleeves of the denim jacket rolled up, and leaving it fully unbuttoned, you add a touch of colour & texture interest to your look without trying too hard.

A short sleeve button down shirt can look too casual when paired with a pair of sneakers. First thing you gotta do is make sure the shirt is well ironed! An ironed shirt will pull together any look and keep it looking clean & sleek.

By buttoning up the shirt all the way, it adds a touch of polish & preppy-ness to your outfit.
