With poolside weather edging closer and closer, don’t be caught with your shorts down when party season arrives. The spring and summer months will come with ample opportunity to flex your elevated sense of style by the water, and you can bet the discoloration and ripped mesh lining of that not-so-trusty pair won’t cut it in 2019.
Fortunately, SS19 lines have a steezy swimwear solution for every budget. But measuring in at approximately a single square foot of fabric, opting for a design that speaks to your sense of style can be a mission of Pacific proportions in itself.
So, to help you make a splash with your style choices this summer, below we’ve compiled a brief(s) overview of our favorite swim shorts to cop right now, spanning sportswear, streetwear, and luxury fashion.
Those looking to spend only a drop in the ocean on their summer swimwear this year needn’t fret about losing out at the lido. For under $100, statement prints and colors to turn heads by the pool abound. Our favorites include an on-point pastel pair from outdoor specialist Patagonia and Stussy’s out of this world galaxy print swimming attire.
$100 – $200
Up your budget slightly and you can flex that bit harder (and with a clearer conscience) by copping the Boardies® X Daniel W. Fletcher swim shorts, which are made from 100% recycled plastic water bottles.
For those with a bit more cash to splash on their pool party aesthetics, a cop from our most loved brands will make waves considering that – aside from your footwear – this single piece will make up your entire outfit.
Particular highlights of SS19’s more fashion-forward shorts include a dazzling emerald green pair from Prada, as well as an option from Dries Van Noten featuring psychedelic graphic print.
