Board shorts trends for 2017

From Rio to Canggu, through Ibiza and Bora Bora, men these days are making boardshorts a must have style in their holiday wear.  And this year’s trends are showing popping colors and tropical prints that suit an island setting. Staying in this trend, we’ve got a few tips on how you can pick the right shorts for your next holiday!

The do’s :

  • Be playful with bright or contrasted colours
  • Get the tropical vibes by picking exotic flowers, palm inspired and jungle leaf prints
  • Stay traditional: pick a traditional shape board short
  • Be trendy with a short a little bit smaller in length than usual. Just above the knee works better than below!
  • Make sure you feel comfortable with the fabric you’re wearing.
  • Wear you boardshorts by the pool, on your way to the beach, at the beach, while swimming, surfing, snorkelling…

The dont’s :

  • Avoid boardshorts that are too long! It will make you look quite short and stocky
  • Don’t choose an oversized boardshort if you are quite tall and thin, or you would look even thinner!
  • Avoid combining Hawaiian print shirts with your boardshorts unless your goal is to look like the stereotypical tourist!
  • With the exception of being a lifeguard or surfer, never wear your boardshorts at a job interview, fancy restaurant, or night club! This is common sense but you will be surprised to see that some guys will do it!
