It’s always the right time to go to the beach, especially if you are looking to get a new pair of swim trunks. It’s always summer somewhere, and if that somewhere happens to be in your mind, then you are certainly going to want to look the part as well. Check out these top swim fashions below, and feel the sunshine vibes.
1. Original Penguin Men’s Three Stripe Fixed Waist Volley
This Three Stripe Penguin design is functional and stylish, sporting a mesh lined interior and front slit pockets. Its shorter legs and fixed waist with hook and loop closure make it ideal for a game of beach volleyball. Because loop closures are not adjustable, it is important to get a suit that is your correct size (sizes run somewhat small), but this also means that the pair that fits you can be comfortably worn in and out of the water.
Price: $41.40 – $69.00
2. Kiniki Amalfi Mens Tan Through Swim Shorts
Tan through shorts are a must for those hoping to catch some sun on a tropical reprieve. The Transol Tan Through Fabric on Kiniki Amalfi swim shorts allows UV rays through for an even golden tan that will last well beyond Summer. This does mean that the shorts are partially see through, but their Micromesh Front Lining will protect your modesty when you’re laying out in the sun. The psychedelic patterned shorts fit snugly and dry quickly, making it a great choice for sunbathing and swimming.
Price: $27.24 (50 percent off MSRP)
3. 2(x)ist Men’s Ibiza Block Print Swim Trunks
These 2(x)ist Ibiza print swim trunks, like most of this year’s hottest trunks, show a bit more leg than traditional American swim trunks. They also catch the eye with a bright, interesting pattern, this one available in three different colors. The design also has metal eyelets on the back that prevent the trunks from ballooning up, and the trunks have a quick dry mesh lining that is designed with a contour pouch to add support and comfort.
Price: $49.22 – $82.95
4. O’Neill Men’s Murca Boardshort
Sometimes you just have to make it painfully obvious that the faux tribal patterns and Hawaiian floral prints don’t do it for you. If that statement applies to you, the red, white, and blue is just the kind of audacious look you’ll need at the beach. The flag and beer pong-themed design works in the same manner as a tuxedo t-shirt. People will know you want to be classy but you’re still here to party.
Your drunken patriotism will be apparent whether your vacation destination is Cancun, Nassau, or some place local like Miami Beach. If you’re a real traditionalist, there are plenty more tasteful American Flag options for you as well. Its sizes are a bit small so keep this in mind as you choose your size.
Price: $22.37 – $54.50
5. Kaneohe Bay Vintage Surf Trunks
This Reyn Spooner design evokes the feeling of setting sail in Kāneʻohe Bay with its tiled sailboat pattern. The vintage pattern is a refined addition to any beach wardrobe, even if you aren’t actually planning a sailing trip.
Price: $56.25 (25 percent off MSRP)
6. Diesel Men’s Coralrif-E Swim Trunk
Diesel, a popular name in Men’s underwear, offers their signature design in mens swimwear as well, taking the form of short swim trunk styles, their Coralrif-E trunks somewhat similar to boxer briefs. The Polyester material and elastic wasteband are comfortable, but due to the design, the trunks run small in general. Be sure to pick up the slightly larger size if you teeter between two. The bold logo on the side and interesting cut make this a stylish choice for poolside lounging.
Price: $42.34 – $88.05
7. Diesel Men’s Aloha Swim Trunk
Another great Imported Diesel design is the Aloha swim trunks, which hugs more tightly to the body but remains equally comfortable. The lime green color is eye-grabbing, yet the modern and stylish cut doesn’t leave you over-exposed. These trunks are branded with a Mohican head logo, and provide an exotic look that goes over well overseas.
Price: $37.50 – $50.00
8. Zehui Brief Swimming Trunk
The Speedo-styled Zehui Brief trunks are a truly exotic look for the brave. Yes it will run tight, and if this is your style that might be how you like it. The design is down to business, and yes, it says “Get it on!”. They are not quite a square cut in the back, but do offer a little more coverage than a bikini cut. That said, this is a risky introduction into the world of Speedos. You have to be ready for the amount of sexy and masculine you will feel when you wear these, or else it will take you by surprise.
Price: $8.69 – $18.99
9. Hot Print Body Bikini Swimsuit
Take your pick of over thirty different bikini-style Hot Print suits. You will find everything from flames to snake skin on these suits, allowing you to take your pick of screaming pattern.
Diving in these can be risky, as there is no drawstring, but given the style these are clearly in the style of a risk taker.
Price: $9.97 – $19.97
10. HIC Nuku Hiva 8 Way Octo Super Stretch Boardshorts
If you found Oneil’s all-American swim trunks to be an absolute betrayal of your worldly tastes and rich heritage, an exotic design from Hawaiian Islands Creations might be just up your alley. HIC is known for their fabulous tribal color gradations and eye catching patterns, which look great under crystal clear water, or whipping in the wind above a skimboard. Since these are boardshorts, they will show off less leg than some of the other swimsuits on this list, and will have slightly more accurate size readings.
Price: $57.96 – $63.00
