Whether you’re planning a luxury staycation to switch off and relax, or heading abroad for some much-needed sun, men’s swim shorts are a warm-weather essential. Versatile and stylish, a good pair of swim shorts will make you feel good while lounging poolside or playing beach sports.
When it comes to choosing the right swim shorts, there are plenty of factors to take into consideration. Do you prefer long or short-length shorts? What colours compliment the rest of your wardrobe? Which styles suit you best?
Luckily, we can help you answer some of these with our range of luxury, quick dry swim shorts. Designed for comfort and style, you’ll want to wear them all summer long.
1. Classic Fit Swim Shorts
You can never go wrong with a pair of classic-fit swim shorts. Stylish and comfortable, these swim shorts are a wardrobe staple and will become your go-to for every trip. The beauty of classic fit shorts is that they can be worn in multiple ways, for example, on their own for a dip in the pool or with a plain white t-shirt and some sandals to enjoy a drink or two in the beach bar.
Our range of men’s classic fit swim shorts are designed for a relaxed look, with a full elasticated waistband to ensure the perfect fit (even after a 3-course lunch). Available in vibrant colours or subdued pastels, owning several pairs will see you through every holiday.
2. Short Length Swim Shorts
A slightly shorter length than our classic fit swim shorts, but look equally as relaxed and feel just as comfortable. Our short length swim shorts will help you achieve a fuller tan whilst lounging in the sun, or show off your leg when playing sports on the beach. They offer maximum flexibility along with modern styling; they’re perfect for both activity-filled days or laid-back moments.
All our classic fit and short length swim shorts are created using an innovative quick-drying polyester fabric with a water-repellent finish. This means they’ll dry quickly, so you can go from beach to bar comfortably without having to change.
3. Plain and Simple Swim Shorts
While some swim short styles feature large patterns, floral designs and vibrant colours, for the modest man, a pair of plain, block-coloured shorts is more favourable. Neutral tones offer a wider range of versatility and still look good both on the beach and in the spa.
Plain shorts in tones, such as peach, salmon, pale blue or mint green will perfectly complement a tan, while darker colours, such as navy, burgundy or black, are guaranteed to flatter whether it’s day one or fourteen. We’d recommend stocking up on several colours to mix and match with your summer outfits.
4. Fun and Bold Patterned Swim Shorts
Summer months and exotic locations are made for bright colours and bold designs. So, if you’re feeling brave, choose some fun patterned swim shorts, such as floral or animal designs and funky prints, to add to your collection and stand out from the rest.
Depending on how bold you want to be and where you’re going, you can pair your patterned swim shorts with a contrasting colour or patterned t-shirt. Otherwise, keep it simple with a white or black t-shirt or linen t-shirt so the focus stays on the patterned shorts.
The swimwear you choose should not only fit perfectly and be comfortable to wear all day but also make you feel good. This is what we, at Derek Rose, strive for in every garment we design and produce.
Unlike most, our swimwear features a seamless inner mesh lining for a more comfortable fit and a mesh-lined back pocket with a pin lock zip that cleverly locks into place when flat to keep all of your valuable items safe and secure while on the move.
Browse our wide range of stylish men’s swimwear, including classic fits or shorter-length swim shorts in various colours and patterns, that are ideal for wearing around a luxury resort abroad or in the comfort of your home lounging by the pool.
