The Coolest Shorts Are Ready for Anything

15 pairs of wild, rugged styles
for spring and summer

Topography belted shorts, $55 by The North Face

When it's hot and sunny out, you should probably be wearing shorts. And here's the good news about shorts—you can be as bold and ballsy as you like. There's something about wearing shorts that already puts you in a DGAF state of mind. So what better way to mess with the more relaxed, streetwear-influenced styles permeating throughout menswear at the moment. Loud, statement prints? Relaxed, athletic-inspired styles? Utilitarian hiking shorts with an elastic waist and built-in belt? They've all got celebrity endorsements and cosigns from street style insiders. So give a pair a try and enjoy the relaxed, breezy comfort. And bonus, many of them are pretty affordable too.
