A Week’s Worth of Patterned Shorts Outfits for Men

By Gabi Meyers | Last Updated: Apr 23 2024 | 3 min read

The Farmer’s Almanac marks summer’s end as September 22nd, but we all know the hot weather can linger even longer. Meaning? Warm weather essentials will stay…well, essential for an eternity.

While us ladies are blessed with the option of easy, “throw on and go” dresses – specifically of the no contact-mumu variety, guys have less options. Thankfully, there is one hot weather hero to save every stylish guy’s wardrobe: the patterned short. Patterned shorts allow your knees to breathe and can add enough visual interest to a t-shirt and sneaker outfit to make it look like you did more than fasten one button and slide one zipper.

Get ready to simplify your warm weather style with shorts that can handle anything you throw at them, making them the perfect pair to wear from now all the way through Labor Day..
