Casual Summer Style: 3 Drawstring Shorts Outfits for Guys

I’m just going to say it. There’s no single clothing item more quintessentially summer than your favorite pair of shorts, and we may have a new contender for that title.

Enter, the drawstring short.

Casual, comfortable and easily convertible for many occasions, the drawstring short feels like sweatpants, without being quite as sloppy.

Below, 3 drawstring shorts outfits for guys to wear this summer:


shorts: Katin, $55 

Wear it Well: When it comes to occasions for drawstring shorts outfits for guys, a backyard hang session is pretty much the perfect opportunity.

Roll the hem on the shorts, and make sure you spill the BBQ sauce on the dark part of the patterned shirt. Don’t forget suede protector on the shoes!


shorts: Hugo, $98 (similar)

Wear it Well: Obviously a drawstring swim trunk is an easy style win.

This tie-dye pair is no longer available (I have too good of taste, I guess!), but this geometric pair or this swirly style would look just as striking poolside.


shorts: Old Navy, $22

Wear it Well: This outfit is perfect for when you need to dress up…just a little.

A tip on styling, leave the shirt tails out. The sweater adds enough polish so you don’t have to keep things stuffy and tucked.
