Make those pair of shorts your best friend in this hot, humid weather. While this comfortable, shortened version of pants let your legs breath, it's also a front runner in the department of effortless, casual fashion. From printed to checkered to denims, interesting interpretations of shorts were on show at the recently-concluded men's fashion week in Milan. Here's how to ace this sporty trend.

*Flora fashion:Flora has left a significant mark on the men's fashion scene. Steal this look from the Dolce & Gabbana runway by pairing a floral or bird-print, slim-fit shorts with a striped tee. Peasant footwear will complete your kitschy look.

*Checkmate:Slim-fit, checkered Bermuda shorts worn with summery tees, as exhibited by designer Stella Jean, is all you need for a relaxed outing with friends. Ditch your everyday shoes and finish your look with casual strappy sandals to make your look cooler.

*Denim business:Denims are undoubtedly big this season. So, stocking your wardrobe with a pair of denim shorts is a must. Wear it with a cool shirt and a leather belt to ace casual chic, like this model from the Gucci runway.

*The Indian touch:Take a cue from the India-inspired show by Missoni to play with colour and texture. Team up your shorts with an ikat patch-work shirt. Throw on a stole, if you can pull it off.

*Dash of colour:If sporty-luxe is your style, then this look from Versace is for you. Don't shy away from wearing colours, as spring is all about experimenting with different hues. Wear a patterned zipper with shorts in summery hues, instead of usual blacks and blues.

*Print on print:Go for this separates look from fashion brand Fendi's runway. Rock the head-to-toe prints trend by wearing baggy Bermuda shorts and shirt of the same print. You can also experiment by wearing clashing prints.

*Blaze it up:Who says shorts are for casual dressers? Up your style game by going for blazers over shorts. Ace this semi-casual approach as seen on the Tiger of Sweden runway, by wearing crisp shorts with skinny blazers. Brace yourself up for some serious attention!
