When it comes to summer staples this season’s seen no shortage of above-the-knee options for the fashionable fella. Here we round up some of our favourite pairs – and what to pair them with!
Get the Look: From the high-end to the high street, Ashlee Starratt helps you to get the look.
Keep those brightly-coloured khakis the star of your ensemble by pairing them with a darker choice on top. This collared tee from Bershka is anything but muted with its subtle tropical pattern and black-meets-crimson hue. Wear it for RO14.9.
Let’s start with the basics. Denim never goes out of style – period. Dress it up or dress it down, the trick is to find new ways to reinvent it each season. That’s why we love the comfy-casual vibe of these knee-grazers from H&M. The added touch of a drawstring and elasticized waist just add to the slip-‘em-on and head out charm! Price: RO9.6.
Got a weekend barbecue or dinner with the in-laws on the calendar? Keep cool (and chic!) by dressing up a classic top-and-bottom ensemble with a pair of vibrant-hued khaki shorts that can be paired nicely with a light-cotton collared shirt or vest if you want to go the extra preppy mile. We love this lemonade version from American Eagle Outfitters for RO17.2.
When it comes to summer footwear, less is more. So if you’re thinking of investing in a pair of sandals to last you the summer, go big or go home. These sport performance pair of Cyprex Ultra II sandals from Adidas go the extra mile whether you’re hiking in the Al Hajjar Mountains, or walking laps around City Centre. Make them yours for RO27.5.
Whatever your choice of shorts this season, no summer ensemble is complete without the right pair of shades to cap off your look. You can’t go wrong with a classic aviator style – like this tinted pair from MAX. Wear them for RO2.5.
Summer’s all about getting in as much beach-time as humanly possible. And for guys who live for Oman’s sand and surf will want to invest in a good pair of swim trunks to last them through the season. We love the robin’s-egg blue hue and saltwater durability of these pair of board-shorts from GAP. Snag them for RO13.4.
Keep the sundowners vibe on-point with a graphic tee that pairs perfectly with those casual denim shorts. We love the colourful print of this classic T-shirt from GAP that adds a pop of colour to a summer basic. Grab it for RO13.4.
