Whether it's Brockwell Lido or the Bahamas you're going to, take advantage of the sales to restock your swimwear drawer this summer.
Most of my clients like a medium to longer length so I've chosen a selection of those here, in colourful prints but ones I feel whisper summer sun without screaming "look at me" from the sand dunes!
Sizes are selling out super fast so get your fingers revved up for an online spending spree.
Green and navy blocks print swim shorts - Thorsun at Matches - £210 to £105
I love the colours mixed together in this pair of swimshorts and the clever 3D print. They'd be easy to wear with pale blue, navy or white t-shirts or shirts and flattering on a variety of skin tones.
Orange and white print swim shorts - Frescobol Carioca at Stylebop - £159 to £111
When I first came across Frescobol Carioca at London Collections Men, I was instantly struck by their eye catching designs in tailored styles. And so it seems, were many of the store buyers as you can find them in plenty of places now. Unfortunately not many of them are on sale, though I did manage to find this pale orange and white pair on Stylebop which would look excellent against a dark skin tone.
8.5" Kailua swim trunks - Polo Ralph Lauren - £75 - £52
These have been a favourite with clients as they come up a bit longer, and have a great shark print pattern that makes them interesting but not too crazy. A great buy for spa, surf or swimming pool, I also love the recommendation a client gave me that his previous pair of Ralph Lauren's had lasted forever even after some serious ill treatment in white water rapids!
Draupner mid length printed swim shorts - Everest Isles at Mr Porter - £165 to £82.50
In a cheery orange and made from technical Swiss fabric these shorts are bound to do their duty. A stylish palm print design (which also looks like a bird flying to me) brings the summer to you wherever you choose to wear them. Please note - according to the sizing notes they come up very small so order bigger than you would normally take.
Multi fish print swim shorts - Thorsun at Matches - £210 - £105
Okay so admittedly these are a shorter length but would be perfect for someone with not so long legs or who would prefer to get a more extended tan. I feel relaxed just looking at these with their calming colours and fishy print, and if they feel half as good as they look, you'll slip straight into holiday mode the minute you put them on!
If you're going on holiday soon, and would like some help getting together some stylish, but practical clothes including swimwear then contact me today - the sales won't be on for much longer!
