Similarly, the demand for cycling legwear is expected to reach almost USD 1.5 billion by 2027, reflecting the global discourse for wellness, health, and renewable modes of transportation.

Design Ideas for Custom Shorts

With a variety of options comes a variety of designs, and what better way to get your creative juices flowing than by offering a couple of angles to base your ideas around.

Floral Shorts

As timeless as the Hawaiian shirt, floral pattern shorts have a free and loose feel that lets you experiment with unique patterns and dazzling flora.

Create original patterns by choosing an appropriate color palette for your brand and pick an environment – garden variety, wildlife, jungle, close-up shots, etc.

Think in the lines of hot or cold colors, add some depth with shading or dark spots, or make uniform patterns that repeat around the waist.

Shorts Design Ideas - Logo

Custom Logo Shorts

An amazing logo design needs the perfect print location. Usually, the logo goes on the front of the leg, the low end of the hem, or the sides. You can put a primary logo on the front and a smaller rendition on the back.

Think of whether you want to keep your logo as the focal point or use it as an element in a more intricate design. Try repeating your logo into patterns, use a mascot or quote, or play with the colors around the logo to make it showier.

Patchwork Shorts

For the more artistically inclined, patchwork shorts are the new flannel. Get lost in designing uneven, irregular, but familiar patterns that turn your head like an Escher painting. Try adding vintage symbols like the fleur-de-lis, sailor knots, a star sign, and flowing waves – place them in unique combinations.

Go with more toned-down colors that mix and match the piece, guiding the eyes through a patchwork journey – perfect for those niche Etsy store hand-made fashion staples.

Take your inspiration from design catalogs through sites like Pinterest, or try your hand at practicing your graphic design skills using our conveniently crafted list of graphic design tips.
