Spring’s Streetwear Uniform: Flexy Shorts & Hoodies

Spring’s Streetwear Uniform: Flexy Shorts & Hoodies

There are certain combinations in men’s fashion that will never go out of style. Some of the more ubiquitous ones that come to mind; the Canadian Tuxedo (aka denim on denim), the timeless denim & tee combo, and of course, the Hedi Slimane-championed leather biker and white tee ensemble. The winning pairing we’ll be talking about today is the perennial uniform of spring casual wear: shorts and hoodies. This combo works on so many levels because it allows the wearer to enjoy warmer temps, but also provides comfort when the spring breeze gets a little too nippy. Before we transition into summer proper, here is some style inspo for your Hoodie + Shorts flex.

From the Gym to the Streets:

With the extra pounds you might have picked up during quarantine, a little more physical activity before summer starts is probably a good idea. To help you stay active during the warmer months, these gym shorts from PLEASURES are a great choice. Pair your shorts with a sturdy Fear of God hoodie, and your ‘fit is ready for whatever.

The Rick Owens Effect:

There’s a certain unique style aesthetic that comes with rocking Rick Owens, and that applies to the designer’s shorts also. The Rick Owens shorts shown here have a higher rise, and the lengths vary from knee-length all the way to ¾ length silhouettes. This all-over, graphic logo hoodie from impressive Korean brand We11done is the perfect companion for these fashion-forward shorts.

Tip-Off with Mitchell & Ness:

The NBA playoffs are starting soon and what better way to stay in style and support your team than rocking these “never-miss” Swingman shorts from Mitchell & Ness. These quality athletic shorts are crafted from mesh fabric and are fully lined with tricot knit. They also boast an adjustable elastic waistband with tunnel drawcords. The utility zip-through hoodie from Rick Owens is a fine sporty option for finishing the look.
