Casual

Shorts always work for a relaxed casual look. The casual shorts are usually made of cotton blends and stop just above your knees. If you want your shorts a bit shorter, you can fold them up or just by a shorter version. They should not be too tight and you can pair them with simple t-shirt and a pair of sneakers or espadrilles.
