Although cargo shorts are not every worldwide designers' choice, they are definitely very popular among US brands. They started the trend and now is widely followed year after year by men throughout the whole continent.
This season we found many of these brands and fashion houses showing how to wear this cool and manly garment along with shirts, sweaters, jackets, boat shoes and sandals.
There are no 'special rules' to wear this piece, but we would like to pass on a little tip though; if you are aiming for a casual look, don't load your pockets or else you'll look like a worker on duty. Those big compartments are not meant to be used, consider them decoratives and leave them empty.
Below are some good examples of outfits for Spring and Summer; but keep scrolling down the page to find where to get cargo shorts online.
Light blue sweater with V neck, t-shirt, light gray long cargo short and sporty shoes.
Blue polo shirt, cargo short with maxi pockets in the same tone, and off white sporty shoes.
