Shorts or slips? Choose the perfect model for you
If you have not yet decided what kind of swim trunks you want to pack for the holidays, you could take a look at the latest trends of men's beachwear, which this year suggests many different ideas.
One of the main trends seen on catwalks is the great return of the swim slips, very small and decidedly sexy. There are the low-waisted models of Dsquared2, those with adjustable drawstrings by Dolce & Gabbana and Versace or those with fluorescent details by Philipp Plein.
Close-fitting lines also for the highly-stretch swim shorts both monochromatic and printed, like for example those by Givenchy and Moncler.
These two types of swim trunks, perfect even for a pool dive, can be combined with the new cotton bathrobes and flip flops for an elegant and luxurious look.
For who wants a more classic style there are the swim shorts, usually made of nylon or high-tech fabrics for a quick drying, like the two-tone ones by Tom Ford, Kenzo and Plein Sport, or those with contrasting side bands proposed by Gucci, Diesel and Adidas.
For a more relaxed and casual style, Bermuda shorts, reaching just above the knee, are back in fashion. Like those proposed by Givenchy, Prada and Daniele Alessandrini Homme. But that now are also in a longer and more cutting-edge version, like those proposed by Dsquared2 and Rick Owens, that could be easily used instead of short trousers and combined with a t-shirt for a shopping tour in some beautiful seaside resort.
