Style Roundup: 15 Swim Trunks for Summer

Grab a towel, some SPF, and soak up the sun

Guys, I’m going to be straight with you: it’s time to buy new swim trunks for summer. Be honest; the ones you’ve been wearing are probably a few years old by now, they’re a little saggy, and the color is…faded. At best. That’s why a new swimsuit is the right first step to feeling like a stylish guy on the seaside this summer (say that three times fast). This year, try a bold pattern, retro fit, or even a neon color to fully carpe that sunny diem.

Below, 15 of our favorite swim trunks for summer:
