Spring is right around the corner, so it's time to pick up a few pairs of shorts so your spring wardrobe is ready to go. If you don't know where to start or what shorts styles are popular, you've come to the right place. Let's take a look at some of the best men’s shorts to invest in for spring 2022.
Choosing the Right Shorts for You
No two pairs of shorts are alike, so it's important to know what you're looking for when you are shopping for new shorts for the spring and the rest of the year.
Types of Shorts
First, consider the type of shorts you want. Shorter, more flexible shorts are perfect for spending time at the gym, running, or enjoying other physical activities. On the flip side, casual but stylish shorts with stiffer materials, like khaki shorts, could be a little better for spending time with friends or going out to casual social events.
Then there’s shorts length to consider. It’s no longer the mid-2000s; shorts that go above the knee are once again in style, but you can find shorts of varying lengths as a man. Generally, shorter shorts are better for physical activities and for staying cool, while longer shorts might be better for pairing with certain shirts or for relaxing.
Fortunately, many of the best shorts come in excellent masculine colors like gray, navy blue, green, and so on. You can also find brighter pastel colors for your spring shorts, including baby blue, peach, yellow, and more. These are great for spending time in the bright sunshine at the beach or for going on a stroll on a bright spring day.
Quality Men’s Shorts for 2022
Once you’ve considered what you want in a new pair of shorts, you can start looking at the most popular shorts styles of 2022. Here are a few examples.
Sport shorts are perfect for engaging in sports activities like volleyball, running, or just lifting iron at the gym. These shorts tend to be a little on the shorter side, but they come in fun patterns like camouflage plus lots of masculine colors like gray, dark blue, and dark red.
Windjammer shorts are usually made from a polyester and spandex blend, meaning they can stretch and move around with your body without losing their overall shapes over time. They’re loose, maneuverable, and great for spending time outdoors without completely shirking style.
They also usually have a quick-drying fabric, which benefits from a textured look. These can go well with many T-shirts and tank tops, especially if the rest of your aesthetic leans heavily into the surfer or other athletic look.
Then there are Gurkha shorts. These unique shorts are usually found in shades of brown, like khakis. They’re a little baggie, but not so baggy as to be unstylish. More importantly, these shorts are supremely comfortable and they often come with excellent pockets; they’re perfect for storing your wallet, keys, watch, and any other accessories you may need to don or discard over the course of your springtime adventures.
Loose, Everyday Shorts
V1946 also features classic everyday shorts. These light and flexible shorts are perfect for lounging around the house or for taking your dog on a walk. They’re made from comfortable polyester and spandex blends and feature elastic waists with flexible sizes. As modern fit shorts, they fall straight to just above your knee and come in lots of classic colors like gray, blue, and more. Note that these aren’t the best choice for going out on a date or hanging out with your friends.
