Summer is here – finally! So whether you’re heading to the lido or beach-bound on a glorious holiday, you want to make sure you look the part.
We’ve rounded up the best men’s swimming shorts this season – whether you’re after a bold print or minimalist design.
While you’re here check out our round-up of men’s summer shoes, including some poolside options.
ASOS DESIGN Swim Shorts In Khaki In Short Length, ASOS, £12
Relax poolside knowing your swim shorts are eco-friendly – they were made from recycled polyesters (from plastic bottles and textile waste), using a process that saves water, energy and reduces greenhouse gas emissions as well. We love the khaki pair, which is a smart alternative to black.
Bright Floral Print Swim Shorts, Topman, £18
Go bold or go home. This colourful pair is designed in a classic fit and is machine washable. It’s also part of a co-ord, so if you want to really go all out, get yourself the matching shirt.
Mistral X Mango Printed Swimsuit, Mango, £35.99
Mango has collaborated with windsurf brand Mistral on a 90s-inspired collection and this geometric printed pair is our favourite of the lot. It’s colourful, allows for easy tanning and is the easiest way to update your beachwear wardrobe.
Embrace the tie-dye trend with this coral and white pair. The drawstring waistband is particularly helpful if you’ve consumed a few too many ice creams by the pool and the two side pockets mean you can keep your hotel room key and sunglasses safe.
Knee-length Swim Shorts, H&M, £19.99
If you’d prefer a longer leg, these colour-blocked trunks will do the job. The simple design isn’t as loud as the tropical variety but equally as stylish. Pair with poolside sliders and you’re ready to go.
Paint Stripe Swim Shorts, John Lewis, £38
Brighten up the beach with this striped number that’s sustainably made in a fabric from discarded plastic bottles. So you can look good and cut down your single-use plastic consumption. Winner, winner.
Tropical Swim Shorts, Matalan, £10
Palm prints have made their way into swimwear, after successfully dominating our home furnishings. This affordable pair caught our eye for its vibrant but not overwhelming print.
ASOS DESIGN Swim Shorts In Ditsy Palm Tree Print, ASOS, £16
If you’re looking to keep it more lowkey, opt for this minimal tree print design on white shorts. Just try not to spill your drink down them at the beach club.
Men Active Mesh Swim Shorts, Uniqlo, £19.90
This orange mesh-lined pair is perfect when you plane to be in swim shorts all day long. Throw on a t-shirt and you’d never be able to tell you’re in swimwear. The back pocket also has a key strap so you can carry drinks in both hands rather than fumbling about with your valuables.
