Short Game: Three Ways to Nail Knee-Length Summer Style

Your calves are trapped in trousers three out of four seasons. Let them breathe a little. Give your style a seasonal shakeup with a few of our favourite shorts from Gotstyle.

West Coast Cool

Gotstyle, Shorts

Test your street style by pairing these Kollar cutoff denim shorts with an oversized long tee. Every guy needs a pair of low-top sneakers in his rotation, and these ones stand out from the pack with a graphic punch that gives them a Venice Beach vibe. Take the look all the way with some heavy metal man jewellery that riffs on the shorts’ motorcycle pant details.

Summer in the City

GotStyle, Shorts

A pair of skinny fit chino shorts is your goes-with-anything foolproof choice, and the cuff details on these ones, by Selected Homme, take them a step beyond basic. Pairing them with a chambray band collar shirt (another versatile piece to have in your summer style rolodex) is the perfect colour contrast. Swap out your leather belt for braided nylon, your lace-ups for textured sneakers, and your briefcase for a waterproof tote that doubles as a backpack.

Out of Office

Gotstyle Shorts

A little pattern goes a long way, and this toned down tonal print keeps its cool. Top it off with a resort collar shirt that says you are definitely off the clock, and a soft woven hat that oozes with Hemingway steez. These suede moccasin style loafers let you leave the house sock-free. Just throw a pair of trunks and bottle of your favourite summer sipper in your weekend bag and leave the weekday drudgery behind.
