Five of the Best: Men's Swim Shorts

The sun is out and it's time to get those legs out. Okay, it's actually raining as I write this so that might be a slight exaggeration but one can only hope...

I am jetting of on a brief holiday later this week so my attention has turned to swim wear - no budgie smugglers for me but neither those horrid long board shorts. For me it needs to be a nice mid-to-short length pair of swim shorts. 

So here are the top five swim shorts I came across on my search this week.... who cares if we don't look like the Aussie Bum models above.

1. The Simplistic: This black pair from J Lindeberg is simplistic but stylish with a tiny JL logo on the back and a contrasting white drawstring and the perfect length for catching some sun on those pasty legs without being too revealing. Available from House of Fraser. £60.

2. The Retro: I love these retro inspired Tricolor shorts from D&G. I am not usually a massive fan of this brand (far too ostentatious for me generally) but this pair is classy and the coloured side stripes add a sporty feel. Find them at the brilliant FashionBeans for £105.

3. The Lifeguard: These 'Pup' shorts from hot swim wear brand Orlebar Brown are perfect for those who have been working out and who want to show a little more leg, or those who want to don them with a yellow t-shirt for that 'life-guard chic' look. Check out the Orlebar Brown website. £85.
4. The Floral: I do love a pair of floral shorts. It is possible to go horribly wrong with patterned shorts so I always turn to Paul Smith to ensure I stay on the right side of tasteful. These 'Slim Classic' shorts can be found on the Paul Smith website and cost £75.
5. I always turn to Topman for something stylish that is not going to break the bank. These 'Red Candy Stripe' shorts from Topman will do the job perfectly and are only £18, reduced from £26.  
So there you have it, Mr Musing's top five swim shorts for men. Have fun in the sun! 

Oh and remember 'no carbs before Marbs'.....(that's Marbella, for those who don't sneakily watch The Only Way is Essex). 

What do you think?
