in there like swimwear :: the best styles for men this summer

The summer swim season's drawing near its end; however, do not fret, even if you don't live in a year-round sunny locale, you can still enjoy nearby pools! And who better to make you men look fresh and stylish than the UK's department store Very? They're definitely no ordinary online platform, and their prices are to die for! Here's a guide to menswear swimwear, by our guest, Very.

Somehow it seems that, despite their limited choice, men so often get it wrong when it comes to choosing swimwear. Read on for five top styles that will have the boys looking their best on the beach this summer.

1. The 1950’s cut
A safer mens swimwear choice than bold speedos, 1950’s cut shorts deliver a snug, tight fit, without the full-on swimming trunk look. Even though speedos look to be making a return after their fall from grace in the 90’s, the 1950’s shorts are edging it with bright and modern colours and designs. Seen filtering through to tourist hotspot beaches in LA and California – as well as on the catwalk via Dolce and Gabbana and sports brand, adidas – the shorter short could be the choice for you, if you have the body for it.

2. Bold prints
Bold prints associated with Hawaiian boarding shorts never disappear from view completely, but they certainly seem to be bang on-trend this summer. Huge floral prints are proving very popular, with big names like Animal, adidas, O’Neill, Gant and Superdry all brandishing variations of the design. If you like pushing your personality with your swimwear, this could be the style for you.

3. Knee-length boardies
Not just the reserve of super-cool surfers, knee-length boardies make for a very relaxed yet stylish beach look. They often come with a higher level of design embellishments, like extra pockets – great if you need somewhere to store your locker key while enjoying a few laps of the pool. Word to the wise – if you’re a little short of stature, you may want to avoid knee-length shorts, as they can have a shortening effect on the body.

4. The full-on trunk
Inspired by the athletic aesthetic trends we’ve seen in women’s fashion, and the upcoming Olympics, the full-on swimming trunk look is back! Certainly one for those who are very comfortable with their body, you can even pick up a pair of official Team GB Olympic swimming trunks if you rate yourself as master of the strokes.

5. Preppy checks
Those who want to look classy and refined may want to consider preppy shorts with a checked design. You can pick them up in knee-length or shorter styles, and they won’t look out of place if you want to use them as daywear too.
