3 NEW WAYS TO WEAR SWIM SHORTS
By Lakeisha Goedluck, August 27, 2018
If swimming gear isn't really your bag, you’ve probably got a fair few pairs of swim shorts as part of your summer rotation. Now, they may have served you well for all the pools and open water spots that you’ve ventured to this year, but here’s a pro tip: they’re suitable for everyday wear too. Feeling doubtful? Sea how to style them below (sorry).
Colorful swim shorts offer the ideal opportunity to go a bit out-there with your outfit. If you’re down for dressing in bold patterns, opt for a set of swim shorts like these camouflage-print ones from Obey. To curate a ’fit that’s technicolor but tasteful, choose a top that ties into the main colors of your shorts.
Styling swim shorts for a life away from the beach can make you feel like a fish out of water, but a solid rule of thumb to follow is to dress as ostentatiously as you want — in other words, pile on the printed gear.
Now, if you ever been to a pool party or to a BBQ on the beach, you’ll know that the likelihood of actually going swimming is slim to none. So, you’ll need a get-up that’s appropriate for your surroundings — and in this case, underdressed is the way forward.
