Types of Shorts

There are lots of different types of shorts for various occasions. Here are some of the most popular styles:

Jersey Shorts

Jersey shorts are the best type of shorts for casual occasions or lounging. The shorts equivalent of sweatpants, they are often made from jersey cotton with a regular fit, ensuring maximum comfort for the wearer

Cargo shorts are perfect for pretty much anything. They have multiple pockets, making them great for carrying essentials like a phone, wallet, and keys. Cargo shorts are usually made from cotton or a blend of cotton and polyester.

Mesh Shorts

Similar to jersey shorts, mesh shorts are best for casual occasions. They are incredibly comfortable and often have more of an 'airy' feel than jersey shorts, making them absolutely perfect for warmer weather.

Swim Shorts

Pretty self explanatory here, however the right pair of swim shorts can also be styled well with topwear pieces for a chilled holiday or summer fit.


When it comes to any garment, the fabric determines everything; how it will fit/fall, the weight, the look, durability and breathability. Here are some of the most popular fabrics for shorts:


Cotton is a popular choice for shorts because it is lightweight and breathable. It is also easy to care for and can be machine-washed.


Polyester is a synthetic material that is known for its durability and quick-drying properties. It is a popular choice for athletic shorts and board shorts.


Nylon is another synthetic material that is lightweight and quick-drying. It is a popular choice for swimwear and board shorts.


Linen is a lightweight and breathable natural fiber that is perfect for hot weather. It has a relaxed and casual look, making it a popular choice for beachwear and casual outings.
