Mixing elements from a typical pair of flat front khakis shorts and a bathing suit, the Lightweight Beach Short by J. Crew ($60) works just as well on the sand as it does driving around in your TLC Icon CJ3b. Made from lightweight cotton, these shorts feature a Zip Fly, 10 1/2″ inseam, and convenient angled button-down front flap pockets for keeping things like your keys and phone close at hand and sand free. The rear pockets also feature flaps to provide your wallet with a similar level of protection. Available only at J. Crew online, snag a pair in white, khaki, or anchor grey, and finally leave your work slacks behind for a change.
