Exploring Different Types of Workwear Shorts 

For those working in warmer climates or outdoors in summer, quality work shorts can be a lifesaver. They keep you cool while providing the freedom of movement that's essential for a productive shift.

There are a few styles of shorts for work which are a usual go-to.

Cargo shorts are a popular choice due to their practicality. With belt loops and multiple pockets, they provide storage for a variety of tools and essentials, making them ideal for hands-on jobs like building or labouring.

You could also go for stretch shorts, which offer flexibility and comfort, perfect for jobs that require a lot of movement. They are made from materials that allow for a greater range of motion, so you won’t feel restricted while working.

If you know you'll be heading from different settings, such as job sites to client meetings, you may want to go for smart shorts. They are designed to look more like traditional dress shorts but with the durability needed for work environments.

Whether you need functional shorts with zip pockets for added security or simply want those which look good while being practical, our wide range of mens and womens work shorts has something for everyone.


How to Style Shorts with Your Workwear

When it comes to styling your shorts, neutral colours like khaki, navy, and black are easy to pair and maintain a professional appearance.

For a cohesive look, match the colour of your shorts with your work shirt, or make sure that they don't clash. For example, if you go for black polo shirts, you might want to go for black work shorts to keep things looking smart. The great thing about our selection is that they go with all types of shirts, from casual t shirts to button-down shirts.

Proper footwear is also a crucial part of your outfit, especially if you’re in a physically demanding job. When wearing shorts with work boots, opt for higher socks to protect your legs and prevent chafing. Both lace-ups and dealer boots will pair well, and you can even go for work wellies if the conditions call for it.


Wearing Shorts to Work: Practical Tips and Guidelines

In some workplaces, wearing a pair of shorts might not be allowed due to safety concerns or dress code policies. For example, on construction sites, long trousers are often required to protect your legs from debris, sharp objects, and hazardous materials.

If shorts aren't allowed at your workplace, consider lightweight, breathable work trousers that offer similar comfort. Look for options with moisture-wicking fabrics and ample ventilation to keep you cool during hot weather. Another option is zip off trousers that give you the flexibility for when you're on a break or in a safe environment.

Always prioritise safety and practicality when choosing your workwear.
