BE A POOLSIDE PRINTS CHARMING

Don’t be shy – this summer, embrace the power of prints and patterns, starting with these swim shorts

From the tiniest insects to majestic birds, animals have flown, swam and strode into men’s style this summer. And my favourite of the flock are these flamingo-patterned swim shorts. With a familiar navy base, these swim shorts invite you to dip a toe (or two) into the trend without diving in head first. The embroidered flamingo pattern adds a touch of luxury to this suitcase staple and guarantees you’ll look as good in the pool as out. But the best bit is the matching pair for your mini-me: that’s family vacation dressing sorted – thanks flamingos.
