Swimming trunks are often a cause for anxiety, fashions come and go as rapidly as elsewhere, leaving you rocking a baggy Speedo look whilst everyone else is in sleek mid-length shorts. Swim shorts are generally the more practical option, allowing you to step from pool to poolside bar with ease. These swim short designs by Paul Smith make a bold statement through print whilst keeping the shape flattering. Floral surf shorts are definitely having a revival, especially, as here, where the quality print suggests Hawaii’s heyday. Pair with perfectly tone-matched Havaianas (still acceptable for the beach) and a witty tote for Rio-class beach cool.
