When it comes to shorts, your dresser has plenty of options: khaki, navy blue, white, all the versatile shorts that give you plenty of warm-weather options. But if your wardrobe is lacking in the “spirit” department, it might be time to stock up on a different pattern: men’s Madras shorts. Madras shorts aren’t just for the occasional festive mood—they’re great to incorporate into any warm-weather wardrobe. Here are five reasons to add these to your wardrobe today.
Men’s Madras Shorts Help You Stand Out from the Crowd
Let’s be honest: it’s not very hard to find a good pair of shorts these days. The ubiquitous look of a button-down shirt or polo over casual summer shorts is a fine outfit, but when everyone else is wearing the same thing, it’s never a bad idea to wear a fresh splash of color. The Madras pattern that you see in the Authentic Madras Short (Light Blue) is a great example. The design is eclectic enough that you can’t quite make out what color the shorts are supposed to be—which lends versatility and uniqueness to your wardrobe.
Open Up Your Outfit Possibilities
Sure, there’s something to be said for the versatility of navy blue and khaki. But when your shorts become the central piece, you can easily pair a simple top and still have that contrasting look that makes the outfit come together. When you pair two versatile colors together, the effect can sometimes be a little on the bland side. With Madras shorts in your dresser, you never have to worry about “bland.”
Versatile Outdoor Options
Casual spring classes, outdoor barbeques, summer picnics, Fourth of July get-togethers—there’s really no end to where you can fit right in with a pair of quality men’s madras shorts. They might not be able to handle the deep of winter in a harsh northern climate, but you’ll find they’re perfect for the outdoor summer party.
Just as Comfortable as Any Short
The color pattern is unique, but the 100% cotton of a Pink Madras Short will feel just as good as any other 100% cotton shorts you can find. They’re light and breezy while still holding up well to the wash. If you’re going to look your best, it doesn’t hurt to feel your best, too.
Madras Shorts Are Fun
Sometimes, it just comes down to that: Madras is a fun pattern that livens up any outfit. Just try and not feel festive when you wear Orange Authentic Madras Shorts—we’re betting you can’t do it. Wearing clothes isn’t always about fitting perfectly into the mold and putting together a sharp, conservative outfit. Sometimes it’s simply about doing what makes you feel your best.
