Mine is a deep blue pair of baggy khakis with a steel metallic tip belt. It has 6 pockets and is very useful for storing wallets, ID's, keys, sunglasses, geometry & writing tools, and hankies while pulling off a casual look. I wear it very often in the summer and sometimes in spring and fall.
Mine would be:

A pair of nice fitting (snug, not necessarily tight) kind of sporty-looking capris, with non-diagonal pockets, with the higher waist, that you can wear a belt with. The material could be a medium weight cotton blend or light twill or denim. And I like shorts like this in khaki or olive green. On a mature women they showcase a fit figure, without exposing all that unfortunate skin. They're comfortable, versatile and fun to wear.

That would be 135 million people in America alone who wear your favorite type of shorts. In other words, you don't mind.

Seems like I am the only guy on this thread. Maybe most other guys wear what fits them that day and don't have a favorite pair .

I'm a clothes horse, so difficult for me to choose a fave anything & I have a billion styles of every clothes item.

Overall, I like low riders (or those that just sit on the hips), flap pockets on the back & cuffs (I'm thin, so like to add a bit of bulk), slash pockets in the front for me to place keys/$ into, many colors (but pink, white or beige are great). For some reason, I seem to have accumulated a lot of olive colored, summery shorts/skirts, as they're the left overs on sale at end of season. Not my fave color, but if I like the cut/fit, I'm in.

My faves are these:



And, these:



But I more often wear this Jimmy-Z style skirts in a variety of colors:



And, especially these Columbia style hiking skirts in beige/olive/black/white:

You're a lad. You'd look better in deep blue than I... & I'd skip the pink, were I you.

You seem more attracted to color. Maybe many, such as myself, are more interested in fit/price, in that order & will settle on color??

I have a fair amount of olive/brown/gray shorts/skirts because the price was right. I don't mind olive/brown, but don't really care for them (although the cut/fit looks good on me). However, I do prefer those choices to blue. Perhaps I was in the Army in a past life.

Gals look gorgeous in deep blue shorts as well. Haven't you seen one of those hot babes wearing deep blue denim shorts. I expected outfits like the one below to be quite common in So. Cal.
