Summer days are in full swing, and if you’ve been wearing the same shorts since last summer it might be time to add a new pair or two into the rotation. With the right style inspiration, shorts can be your ultimate summer wardrobe essential.
Practical, comfy and versatile, shorts work for just about every occasion. Whether it’s board shorts, cargo, or active shorts, a good pair of shorts is a summer staple.
These options from Hi-Tec can easily transition from your early morning coffee run, to a midday swim with no effort at all. Everything in the list below not only looks good, but also comes with some practical detailing — from pockets, to drawstring waists.
Here are the essential styles that should be on rotation this summer.
Choosing a men’s swimsuit is not just a matter of looks. They come in different shapes and materials; finding the ideal swimsuit can make all the difference in terms of comfort.
With so many styles to choose from, it’s difficult to know which shorts to take with you on your next visit to the beach. Be practical when picking the right pair, choose a fabric that dries fast and won’t weigh you down the moment it gets wet.
There are also different beach activities to take into consideration when purchasing swim shorts such as swimming, volleyball, windsurfing & paddleboarding.
The Splatter Swim Short is a smart option for swimming as it offers an elasticated waistband with draw fits which helps with the fit, a Velcro pocket to store your valuables. This neutral colourway is perfect for guys that do not prefer bold swimwear.
Stay stylish at the poolside or play beach volleyball in a look designed for all that summer has to offer. The Geo Line Swimshort has an elasticated waistband with drawcord to enhance its perfect fit, and a velcro pocket.
Whether you’re an avid runner or just enjoy the occasional weekend hike, a pair of active shorts is always good to have in your cupboard. When shopping for this active style of shorts, there are a few things to keep in mind such as function – you are looking for comfortable fabric that is breathable, lightweight and dries easily.
Wear them for your next gym session or throw on a button-up shirt and a cool pair of trainers for an off-duty athleisure look.
Hit the trail in the Hi-Tec 2-in-1 Trail Short, made for a comfortable and durable wear on the trails. The 4-way stretch fabric and built-in inner tights gives you agility and support on runs and walks. With a 7-inch inner leg, back and side pockets and an inner drawcord, makes this a summer staple for the active guy.
The Spike Shorts are ultra-light shorts that are perfect for sporty summer events. With a 95% polyester and 5% elastane make-up, the Spike shorts promise comfort and a great fit. The quick-dry technology and built-in briefs are all must-haves for your next favourite pair.
Today’s cargo shorts are a bit different from their ’90s styles, the newer, updated version is slimmer and shorter, with better proportioned pockets.
Cargo shorts are comfortable, practical, cool and more versatile than your average pair of shorts. They can easily be paired with any casual wear in summer – a t-shirt with a collared shirt and a pair of sandals or sneakers.
These Utility Cargo Shorts stop at nothing when it comes to durability and everyday wear. It’s made from quick-drying fabric, with stash pockets and an elasticated inset at the waistband for extra comfort.
