Take a look at the guys on the left. What is that you see? Florals? Prints?

That's right! Boys, it's time to get rid of your boring white or black trunks and consider adding some color to your swimwear.

If you prefer a more classic style, there's nothing wrong with a more traditional look like the one Randy (far left) is wearing.

Solid colors

Consider adding some color while still keeping a subtle look by wearing solids. For our TV segment, Randy modeled a pair of cobalt blue trunks. Notice how they're slightly above the knee yet still traditional.

Short shorts

Edwin (middle) is not only wearing a multicolored swimsuit, his are well above the knee. Though nothing compared to speedos, these trunks (or boardies) reach your mid-thigh. Shorter trunks are not only trending in Europe, but they also make for better swimming as it holds less water.

Floral prints

We love this trend combination on Alex. He's going for a more daring style with the floral prints but still keeping it traditional by having the trunks fall right on the knees.

Before you shop

Make sure the new trunks include an elastic waistband for an adjustable fit. Also consider going for a polyester fabric as it dries quicker than cotton.
