A good pair of swimming trunks is a summer item the discerning fashionable man cannot go without. To make your choice of swimwear a little easier, here are five styles of swimming trunks to consider this summer.

1. Something striped

The nautical look is especially on trend in summer 2018, and the bonus here is that stripes can do a lot for your figure. If you want to create the illusion of being slimmer than you are, vertical stripes can do just that. If you feel like you need more bulk, opt for horizontal stripes.

2. Military man

The military-inspired look isn’t going away any time soon, it seems. This summer, go for camo or khaki trunks that are around mid-thigh level. Avoid anything below the knee.

3. Colour blocks

Block colour swimming trunks are great because there is sure to be a colour that suits your skin tone. If you are a bit fairer, choose deeper colours like navy, deep green or burgundy. Darker skin tones go well with vivid shades of yellow, cobalt blue and lime green.

4. Retro

Nostalgia is the name of the game with retro-inspired A-line shapes and wider leg holes.

5. Floral

By far the most fun trend this summer is botanical, tropical and Hawaiian prints on swimming trunks. Consider your skin tone and go for a darker background colour if your skin tone is light, and something lighter if you have a dark complexion.
