How To: Wear Shorts Anywhere This Summer


It’s finally warm enough to wear shorts everyday, if you want to (and we don’t think there’s anything wrong with that). We believe you can take your shorts to work (especially if you pair them with a matching jacket!), and that they also work for the beach, casual hang sessions and date night.

1. Well Matched: Pair our Metro Shorts (the perfect middle ground between short-shorts and bermuda shorts) with a matching jacket and a refined tee for a great Summer Friday look. Add a fedora to protect your face from the sun while commuting.

2. Beach-Ready: Give the print-mixing trend a whirl by pairing our Sail Stripe Shorts with a geometric print halter top. It’s a beach chic look that you can easily take to take a sunset happy hour at the end of the day.

3. Laid Back: Play off the nautical feel of these rope print shorts with our anchor sweater — this lightweight sweater will go with so much of your summer wardrobe, and the anchor detail is playful yet subtle.

Let us know how you’re wearing shorts this summer in the comments section.
