Believe it or not, summer’s not just about beaches. And if travelling to the beach means making a seventy-mile round-trip, don’t worry. There are plenty of other places that you can wear the latest and trendiest swimwear.
Here’s a rundown of some styles that will look as good beside the pool as they do around town. Check out the range of men’s swimwear from Very.co.uk to find one that’s right for you.
Classic Bermuda shorts can be worn anywhere you like. They were originally designed for policeman in Bermuda to avoid overheating while on duty, but these days, Bermuda shorts conjure up images of sun, sea and surf. A pair of Bermudas can make for a very summery look, especially when paired with anything from a denim shirt to a V-neck or thin cardigan.
Inspired as much by country pursuits such as polo as they are by life near the sea, checked polo shorts are another great reason to wear swimwear around town. Just pair them with something simple to avoid looking over-cluttered.
Tapered trunks can look extremely sophisticated when teamed with a well-ironed white shirt. Simple, casual and effortlessly cool, this has long been the choice of film stars and celebrities gracing the shops and shores of the French Riviera. Adding a pair of aviators to the mix will undoubtedly help you achieve that played-down film star look.
Bright coloured shorts
Bright shorts are as at home on the beaches of Ibiza as they are in the bars and clubs of Britain’s most exciting cities. Mixing a pair of 90’s-inspired above-the-knee shorts, in pink, yellow or blue, with a short sleeved black shirt is the perfect way to achieve a fun and stylish look.
If you’re planning to stay poolside for most of the day before heading out in the evening, bright shorts are a great way to plan out an outfit. What’s more, they won’t need changing when you head into town.
Retro trunks aren’t just made for the beach either. With an incredible range of patterns available, these are great for athletic figures. Pick a pair in green or red and pair them with a white vest top for that authentic 70’s look.
