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.
#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.
#3 If you can’t leave home without your trusty sneakers/sport shoes, you’ll love this look.
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.
There you have it, our 3 Summer looks you can create with just 1 pair of shorts. Which of these looks are your favourites? :)
