Swim shorts for Summer

A little bit of the Commonwealth Games comes to Edinburgh this week, with the diving competition being held at the Royal Commonwealth Pool. Tom Daley will be diving for England, so we thought we’d pay homage to him and his fellow divers, with some, er, swim shorts!

No trunks here, unfortunately – or maybe that’s fortunately! Sorry guys! Whilst the Speedo-style looks good on the likes of Tom Daley, we reckon most guys prefer to stick to swim shorts or board shorts. And why not? There are plenty of fantastic styles of swim shorts around.

Be bold on the beach with stripes, floral patterns, even a sunset print, perhaps? Choose from shorter swim shorts or longer board shorts, and decide on your price range. There are so many diverse styles and prices available.

Safari prints are fun, tropical prints are on-trend for this summer. Pineapple swim shorts are sure to get you noticed at the pool or the beach. Shorter swim shorts in floral or abstract patterns look great with a tan!
