Make a splash: mens swimwear 2013

Going to the beach can be a little awkward I think. First of all, you are half naked which I am more than comfortable with – it’s the sight of others closely resembling beached whales that makes it a bit strange for me. Secondly swimwear, my god, some men have the most hideous swimwear I’ve ever seen. In fact I think a beach is the perfect breeding ground for some of the world’s worst and most catastrophic fashion faux pas’ you’ve ever laid eyes on. Essentially there is only one rule: too small and too tight leaving absolutely nothing to the imagination is wrong, very wrong and anything closely resembling that should be burned and forgotten! So in the hopes of eradicating sizzling hot beaches across Europe of shockingly bad mens swimwear disasters, I have put together a list of my favourites for this season. Chaps, allow me to introduce you to some of the season’s hottest beachwear, all for under £60 Mens swimwear_featured

This season there are a wonderful selection of sporty styles for the athletic amongst us, some really cool retro styles for the hipsters and of course my favourites – bold prints and colours for those looking for a bit of attention!
