I see you boys. I know you've been hitting the gym a little extra lately as summer approaches. Having the perfect pair of swim trunks is almost as important has achieving your summer bod. Seriously. I feel like lots of guys don't really know what sort of swim shorts work for them, and trust me, nothing ruins a man's look more than unflattering swimwear.
My number one rule is that your shorts must be above the knee. I don't know what it is, but when a guys swim shorts are knee length or (god forbid) below the knee, it's just so lame. Okay, that's a bad explanation, but I'm not sure what else to say besides don't even go there. And I'm not saying you have to wear a speedo or teeny square legs, but please keep it above the knee.
Bright, patterned, or color blocked swim trunks are all you need this summer. They are fun, inviting, and will ultimately make you look like a more confident guy. Not to mention, bright colors can enhance your tan. So that's a plus. From a girl's perspective, there's nothing more attractive than a guy who is secure enough in himself to rock the most out there swim shorts at a party.
Below are some trunks I would love to see on guys this summer. Fun and flirty, they're the perfect incentive to keep doing those squats! Dive into summer by clicking the pictures and shopping these looks.
