THE BLOCK COLOUR SWIM SHORT

 

Proving that minimal style provides maximum impact, a block colour swim short is a style that belongs in many a-summer wardrobe. The Reiss iteration on the swimwear essential arrives in the form of seven shades ranging from a muted cool mint to a bold cobalt blue, and boasts a respectable length suitable for a weekend swim, a beach getaway or a trip to the sauna.

 

In the tailoring world, it would be that classic navy two-piece that’s immediately the first point of call for dinner, weddings or that all important interview – the timeless piece that’s ideal for all occasions. Modest and never failing to make an impression, the block colour swim short is an essential and should be the cornerstone of any swimwear selection.


The Printed pair

 

Forgoing the minimal aesthetic for something a little more eye-catching, printed swim shorts are another summertime classic. While bold and brash patterns may immediately spring to mind when you hear the word print, we’re thinking of something a little more refined for SS18. Steer clear of garish patterns and billowing silhouettes and instead focus on smaller accents to add a splash of personality to your slim-fit shorts.

 

You won’t veer off the fashion radar with a classic vertical stripe and we can assure you that you’ll do no wrong with a floral or botanical print too. If you wish to push the print further, an all-over geometric pattern is not only a winning choice but it’s also a smart way to implement a modern motif into your summer look. Never underestimate the power of print.


The Coordinated approach

 

Menswear has become a little more coordinated as of late. While a single pair of shorts is an adequate choice for your poolside endeavours, at times a little more verve is needed when vacationing to picturesque locations.

 

Enter the two piece – finely patterned shorts that twin with a matching shirt. Hinting towards a summer poolside uniform, the matching set disregards any schoolboy connotations and instead, alludes to a grown-up level of cool. Boosting the casual swim short into fashion-forward territory, the unified ensemble permits languorous strolls along charming far-off streets in style and carries you effortlessly from beach to bar in an instant.
