Make a Splash - Best Swim Trunks

Between long days on the boat and day trips to the beach, if you're like us, your swim suit is easily one of the most important parts of your waredrobe. When you spend all your free time near the water, you need quality swimwear. Nothing is worse than the feeling of heavy, water soaked swim trunks. Plus, you don’t want to be that dude who is wearing the same bathing suit in every picture you’re tagged in for four years in a row. This is your sign to hit refresh on your swim trunk line up.

Men’s Swim Trunk Trends 2023

Need help deciding on your swimwear? Check out some of the trends for men’s bathing suits this year. Hint: This season, it’s all about the bright & bold.

Stripes are pretty much always a winner, but they’re bigger than ever this year. And we’re here for it. They’re slimming, they’re interesting and they give off that coastal vibe that goes perfectly with any vacation. This year, men’s swim trunks come in all different  styles of stripes—nautical, pin, barcode, you name it. Instead of the usual same-sized stripes, we’re really digging the look with blocks of solid colors interrupted by varying lines and shapes.

Bold Patterns
Ditch the solid-color swim shorts this year. Patterns are in. You’ve got endless options when it comes to patterns—Hawaiian flowers, palm trees, fish. A floral bathing suit is always a popular option for men’s swim trunks. But those of us who live and breathe the coastal lifestyle are taking this trend to the next level. The nautical look can come in many unique varieties, from seascape swim shorts to nautical stripe trunks featuring UV protection and added stretch. Just take your pick and you’ll find yourself raking in the compliments as you soak up the sun.

Our Favorite Men’s Bathing Suits

Classic Solid Swim Trunk
Spending time on the water? You’ll want these versatile trunks in every color. They feature quick-dry fabric and fold neatly into the zipper! If you’re the kind of guy who’s always initiating the volleyball match or spikeball face-off, you’ll love these because the drawstring waist is perfect for keeping these swim shorts in place, even as you’re diving into the sand for the game-winning save.

Printed Swim Trunks
You have spoken. Bright, bold prints are in and here to stay. Express yourself with a vibrant swim trunk that is going to guarantee compliments. We seamlessly blend comfort & style in all our swim trunks. Featuring UV protection, wicking properties, quick dry fabric & added stretch, these suits are sure to keep you fresh in and out of the water.

Board short-style swim trunks are for the more active beachgoers.
Usually, a stronger material is used to make sure that the fabric continues to last after repeatedly rubbing up against a waxed surfboard, hence ‘board shorts’. The waistband is also more secure than the average pair of trunks with a defined front that has a hidden button and a drawstring to keep your suit where it belongs: on your body. The slightly longer length helps give you more room to move (and more coverage).

Striped Swim Trunk
If you can’t tell by now, we’re all about this striped look. Especially because there are so many ways to wear it. If you’re going for that nautical theme we talked about, you can’t go wrong here. The colors will match that amazing sunset over the water.

Tip: Performance Shorts that double as Swim Trunks
You’ll still want to get a new pair of swim trunks for the summer, but performance shorts are also a great addition to your wardrobe. When you live the same kind of laid-back lifestyle as us, sometimes you don’t know where the day is going to take you. What can we say? We like to be spontaneous. Throwing on a pair of performance shorts will have you prepped for any kind of activity that comes your way. Brunch on the patio? You’ll fit right in with a gray or khaki pair. Last-minute decision to take the boat out? Don’t even worry about jumping in the water in these shorts because the quick-dry feature will have you dried off before you’re even back on land. 

Making Waves with Your Swimwear
Refresh your summer attire with a bold new pair of men’s swim trunks. Whether you’re an active beachgoer or you’d rather spend the day cruisin’ around and knocking back a few cold ones on the boat, we’ve got you covered with the perfect swim shorts. Go for a bold color or traditionally beachy look, and you’ll have everyone doing a double-take at the beach this summer.
