As the temperature goes up, there's also an increase in pleas from little boys who want to get outside and play. Get your little guy all set to explore with boys' casual shorts that are rugged enough to hold their own against mud and grass stains. Shorts made from cotton are especially well-suited to handle the dirt and washing. Like t-shirts, boys' casual shorts are the quintessential play clothes for warm weather.
Selecting Comfortable Shorts
Favorite clothing brands such as Cherokee offer boys' casual shorts in soft terry that's comfortable enough to wear on long car trips to the beach. Once you arrive, have your kid switch into stylish plaid shorts from Nautica for a family dinner at your favorite seafood restaurant. Fill a suitcase with boys' casual shorts when you shop for secondhand bottoms that cost less.
Just like boys' casual pants, shorts come with a variety of waistbands. Easy to pull up and down, elastic waistbands are popular with all ages while shorts with zippers are ideal for older kids. If you need a small waist, many casual shorts have an adjustable waist feature. With little effort, you can create a fit that's just right for your favorite little guy.
Dressing for Play
If you know a kid who loves to play soccer or basketball, check out boys' active shorts. Made from slick materials such as polyester, rayon, and synthetic blends, these shorts are loose fitting around the legs. Many of these shorts have an elastic waistband with a drawstring. With the drawstring cinched, the shorts stay in place, making it easy for kids to focus on their game rather than their clothes. For games in early spring, pull on a pair of boys' sweatpants over the shorts to keep your kids' legs warm before the competition begins.
Getting Spiffy for a Dressy Occasion
Though casual shorts work well for sports and playtime, they can also do double duty for dressier occasions. Choose a pair of shorts in khaki, madras, plaid, or a solid color to have a nicer look. Pair shorts with a short-sleeve button-up top or polo to create a photo-worthy style. Some brands offer nice casual shorts with embroidered details such as little cars, trains, lobsters, or fish. Shorts with embroidery look especially cool with a coordinating polo shirt.
Coordinating Shirts and Shoes With Boys' Casual Shorts
Almost any shoe works well with casual shorts. Boys can wear flip-flops, tennis shoes, slip-on casual shoes, and sandals to complement their shorts. If you're going for a relaxed look, put together an outfit with a tank top, gray shorts, and flip-flops. Of course, you can't go wrong when you let your little guy go barefoot in his shorts and favorite tee.
Keep plenty of boys' casual shorts on hand for a wide range of activities and events. With threadUP's great prices, you can buy multiples to always have a pair on hand.
