When half of our wardrobes are often filled with workwear for the weekdays, sometimes even the thought of opening up those double doors to pick out something to wear during your off-duty days can seem like such a fuss. There are just moments when all you want is to throw on your fave sleeping tee for a brunch run.
It’s not just you. We all get those lazy days where you just can’t be bothered to do anything, which is also why we’re thankful of this micro-trend: the shirt and shorts combo set.
In truth, it’s not particularly groundbreaking – co-ordinate sets have long existed to cater to different dress codes – but the shirt and shorts combo feels particularly poignant in a time where “work from home” either refers to your present situation or a situation you’re yearning for again.
Perhaps it’s because this combo feels like a dressier cousin to the pyjama twinset, which means you can schlep it on and no one will look at you and think of Sleeping Beauty. Or maybe it’s also because Singapore’s humidity means shorts will always find more favour than long trousers, and any excuse to wear shorts is good enough for us. Or perhaps we’ve seen it on the likes of Hailey Bieber and Bella Hadid to know that this is one comfy trend we’d be willing to hitch our wagons to.
Regardless of why you’re looking for a shorts set, here are some options for you to check out – from the office-ready to the vacay-worthy.
