The possibilities are endless. So how do you best pair your shorts with your collection of Dockers® shirts and sweaters? Follow these steps, and we’ll make sure you look sharp in your favourite shorts.

#1 If you’re gonna wear a patterned short, pair it with a subtle and simple t-shirt.
#2 ‘Tis the season for loud shorts. But if your shorts are shouting, then your top should whisper.
#3 Never wear long-sleeved collared shirts with your shorts. But if you’re going to anyway, ditch the formal shirts and go for something casual instead.
#4 If the occasion calls for a smarter, sleeker look, put on a short-sleeved shirt. And if you’re daring enough, French Tuck it.

The Extra Details

You don’t wanna be known as “The Fashion Faux Pas Guy”. So, take it from us and discover how you can best wear your shorts — and still look fresh and feel comfortable. Here are four essential rules.

#1 Just don’t tuck it. But if you insist, give it a French Tuck.
#2 If you’re wearing a belt, it simply means your shorts don’t fit. Ditch the belt, and get a pair of shorts that sits slightly above your waist perfectly.
#3 Of course you should wear socks. But keep them at ankle-length if you’re wearing them with shorts.
#4 How short is too short? Remember, your shorts should always end about 1cm above the knee.
