Part of what makes cargo shorts appealing is their practicality. They tend to have more pockets than regular shorts, and those pockets are often the close-able type, featuring Velcro, metal snaps or buttons. Cargo shorts are cut so that they stop a bit above the knee, so if you like shorts that keep you cool while still covering your upper legs, then they are the right choice.
These caught my eye because of the “camo” pattern, which I’m not usually crazy about, but somehow these look good:
