Cargo shorts are a wardrobe must-have for multi-purpose practicality and style on the go. From outdoors exploring to a days hard labour or a summer night relaxing, they're our all-in-one short for easy style.
Prepped for adventure with cargo shorts
Super useful for practical wear, cargo shorts are a hard wearing choice for physical work or intense activity. Perfect for outdoor pursuits like walking and hiking, cargo shorts are usually made from lightweight but durable cotton, and their loose fit is perfect for freedom of movement. A defining feature of cargo shorts is often their multiple large pockets, handy on the go for the bare essentials. Opt for a neutral colour like beige or khaki, and team your shorts with sturdy hiking boots and a good back pack for endless adventuring in quality style.
Chill out in style with cargo shorts
As a fashion statement cargo shorts make a good weekend chill out look with suede boat shoes and a polo shirt, ideal for lazy days spent in pub gardens and with a hint of on-trend preppy style. Go with a classic neutral shade, or personalise the look with brighter coloured shorts in shades like burgundy or petrol blue with tan leather shoes and a ivory tee. Make sure cargo shorts are on your holiday packing list - extra versatile, they're perfect for exploring in the day time and relaxing on the beach, but can also be smartened up with slick loafers and a button front shirt of an evening. Try yours with a lightly striped classic shirt, and roll the sleeves up for attitude, with tasselled chestnut brown loafers.
