Whether you’re planning your winter getaway to that warm tropical island or just dreaming of making it through the winter, it’s almost always impossible to find a good pair of shorts during non spring/summer times. One of our favorite times of year is when you can finally toss on a pair of “dress shorts” (because you fancy) and a button-down shirt and head out to happy hour or just to buzz around town.
This upcoming spring we’re seeing a variety of chambray shorts (from light blue and grey to bolder and dark color options), brilliant linen and cotton blends (so they don’t 100% wrinkle the second you put your first leg through) and floral to patterned prints. We’ve rounded up our favorite shorts for men this spring/summer 2018.
1. The Best Men’s Shorts for Spring / Summer 2018: J. Crew Printed Shorts – Buy It Here For $28
We’re loving these 9-inch deep blue printed shorts from J. Crew. Plus, the added white printed retro car with surfboard is such a fun touch that brings a basic blue pair of shorts to the next level. These are nice and lightweight and 100% cotton. Easy, breezy, beachy.
2. Red Chambray Dress Shorts – Buy It Here For $25
Sometimes you need a little color in your wardrobe and these shorts totally fit the bill. These flat front chambray shorts in red will help you standout in a sea of blue shorts every-which-way you look (not that there’s anything wrong with that). These are the perfect color to pair with a light blue button down shirt and your favorite pair of shoes. Plus, grab these coupons to get sale prices at J. Crew!
3. Original Paperbacks “St. Barts” Ocean Blue Frayed Shorts – Buy It Here For $95
These are perhaps our personal favorite shorts this year. They just plain old fit perfectly and don’t flare out on the sides, which some shorts do. Plus, we love how the edges are frayed so they look a little more casual, but still clean up nicely with a button down shirt and your favorite kicks. These come in a cool ocean blue and a variety of other ‘off the beaten path’ color options too!
4. Bobby Jones Flat Front Shorts in Meadow Green – Buy It Here For $95
The perfect fit golf shorts in a killer spring/summer color of meadow green! Did we mention that they’re wrinkle-free? Score! They’re also made with a moisture-wicking tech fabric so you won’t sweat through them on the course.
5. Classic Seersucker Flexible Shorts – Buy It Here For $20
These blue and white striped seersuckers are a blend of cotton and elastane that make them totally flexible and comfortable no matter how many times you wear them. Plus, they’re machine washable so you can wear them over and over again without having to worry about taking them to the dreaded dry cleaner.
6. Deep Blue Chino Shorts for Men – Buy It Here For $28
We loved the elastane and cotton blend because it gives these chino shorts that little extra stretch for added comfort and flexibility. Plus it keeps them from remaining rigid so you don’t feel like you’re ‘over-dressed’ when you really just want to rock your favorite t-shirt with these.
7. Men’s Gramercy Light-Tan Shorts – Buy It Here For $28
If you’re not looking for that standard khaki color shorts, these are the shade for you. What we call a light tan, J. Crew deems them as ‘golden mushroom.’ Find the perfect pair for you!
8. J. Crew ‘Coal Grey’ Casual-to-Dress Shorts – Buy It Here For $28
Our favorite shade of grey this whole season. We suggest pairing these with a crisp white button-down shirt or your favorite bright blue. As always, the perfectly fitted t-shirt also works.

14. Sun-Washed Coral Chino Shorts – Buy It Here For $78
These really are the perfect beachy summer color you need in your wardrobe. Broken in shorts have never looked so good!
