It’s that time of the year again where beautiful summer days and whimsical notions of holidays come to the forefront of our minds. Spring/Summer fashion introduces us to one of the best fashion trends for men this season and one thing that comes to mind for summer has to be menswear.
Men’s swimwear market has been growing steadily these past few years. This season, men’s swimwear has more options that can be available to you: meaning that there are varieties for every body type and personal style: the main focus on swimwear trends is Swim briefs.
Swim Briefs are tight yet extremely small and therefore requires someone who has a petite body size, but they do come in appropriate sizes. A LOT of confidence is required.
Renowned brands like Versace and Michael Bastian launched swimwear at the Milan Fashion Week. Versace exposed us to swim briefs with wide, metallic belts and gladiator sandals to emphasise masculinity and strength featuring shades of black, silver and hot
pink along with trend vibrant floral prints. Michael Bastian on the other hand featured muted two-tone styles in soft pastels and white. Paired with jackets, rugby tops and other preppy staples.
So there we have it. Spring/Summer trend for men: Swim Briefs. Of course there are many trends with regards to Men’s swimwear like trunk shorts, short swim shorts and board shorts. But the trick is to wear what suits you best and how comfortable you are in it. I know, this trend can be very daunting but with the right amount of confidence you
can pull it off successfully.
