See our picks of the hottest shorts of the season and similar, budget-friendly options!
Short + Graphic
The short trunks are not for the faint of heart. That being said, if you're brave enough to rock these tiny trunks we recommend doing so in a striking graphic print. We figure if you're daring to show that much leg, you won't mind calling attention to yourself!
By animal print, we aren’t talking leopard or zebra. Swim trunks with prints of animals on them are always popular and endearing. We love these Vilebrequin shorts in bright turquoise blue with navy blue turtles. If this pair is out of your price range though, have no fear; we found a very similar pair by Oiler & Boiler for a quarter of the price at ASOS.com.
Power to the Flower
Real men wear floral prints...or is that pink? Well whatever it is, real trendy men wear floral bathing suits. Whether large or small print, brightly colored or muted, you'll be sure to see many flower prints at the beach this summer.
So maybe you're not so into patterns. That's OK. Bright solid colors are always in for summertime and that goes for your swim trunks as well. If you care about catching waves more than your bathing suit style, go for a solid hue and you'll be golden!
Long Board Shorts
It goes without saying, but there is nothing sexier than a surfer in board shorts. And if riding waves is your forte, you'll want to slip into a slightly longer swimsuit anyway. Talk about a win-win situation!
