Swim Shorts that will Sizzle Your Summer: Is Your Swimwear up to Scratch?
The Perfect Pair (of Swim Shorts)
Swim shorts are the ultimate menswear summer essential but buying the correct pair to suit you is key. Too loose, too tight, too short or not short enough, are all phrases that can be heard outside of the men’s changing rooms.
So, to help provide you with swimwear solutions, we compiled a list of our favourite swim shorts this season and suitability guides so you can achieve a Daniel Craig look this summer!
The Best Swim Shorts for 2018
Swimming shorts are the most popular type of swimwear for men. This is because they are very much a “one size fits all” type of garment. Obviously we don’t mean that literally, but more in the sense of “suitable for everybody” no matter what your shape or size.
How to Wear Swimming Shorts
Swimming shorts are often frequented at the pool, beach or whilst on holiday. If you manage to find the right pair, they can also be worn as shorts during the daytime (and teamed up with a tee) just in case you may feel the urge to pop for a swim.
The great thing about swim shorts is that they suit almost every body type too, so whether your tall, short, slim or still carrying a little holiday weight from last year, there is a pair out there for everybody.
Short Swimming Shorts
Who likes short shorts? We like short shorts. Oh yes we do! Short swimming shorts are very much on trend at the moment and Gym King are stocking some of the best ones around.
How to Wear Short Swimming Shorts
Short swimming shorts look great on well-built guys. This is because they perfectly compliment that muscly structure they’ve been working hard for all year and because the fit is substantially cosier.
The legend that is – the swimming briefs! You have to be a pretty confident chap to don a pair of these babies. Worn correctly they can look great however, worn badly and bye-bye reputation. Speedos know where it’s at when it comes to these so-called budgie smugglers.
How to Wear Swimming Briefs
To wear swimming briefs it is imperative that you have a good physique. You certainly don’t want onlookers to think you’re strolling down the beach half-naked because your beer belly is covering your briefs! Usually guys with longer legs pulls off this look well.
Board shorts are the underdog of the swimwear world, usually worn by surfers and just outright cool dudes. They are longer than your average swimming short and come in an array of styles, patterns and designs.
How to Wear Board Shorts
To complete the board shorts look to a tee, it helps if you have longer, beachy, rock star hair. If you don’t, it isn’t a problem but damn you would look good if you did! Board shorts are common with those who don’t tan easily (as it covers more of the leg) or those who are wearing swimming shorts for water sports (for practicality).
