Casual Shorts

Warmer weather means outside activities and that calls for some good shorts. Not the smart, tailored ones but really easy-going comfortable shorts you can feel good about kicking around in. Skimming just above the knee, they should be made of cotton (either twill, denim or fleece sweatshirt material) and cut to a comfy fit. And ideally, they should be paired with your favorite simple sneakers.
