Now take another look at your wardrobe. Are you really ready for summer?

If not, don’t worry—we’ve got everything you need to upgrade your shorts just in time for the hottest months.

Swim Trunks: Minimalistic Style with Modern Flair

We’ll be the first to admit that there’s no real science to swim trunks, nothing fancy to tell you, no real tips to share when it comes to buying them. You either know a good pair of swim trunks when you see them or you don’t.

Obviously, we’re partial to our water-friendly Snapper Shorts. These five-inch shorts leave you as much leg room as you can handle without looking like they just arrived in a shipment from a topless beach in Europe. Snapper shorts come in a range of colors, including monochromatic designs and multichromatic designs, which means you can choose exactly the shorts that will best fit the summer wardrobe you already have in place.

Which Colors to Pick

We’ve got a lot of colors for you to choose from when it comes to our Snapper shorts, and for good reason: you’ll be getting a lot of use out of these Snappers. It pays to pay attention to the clothes you already have in your wardrobe so you can pick the right color to match your favorite tops and shirts.

Our tips for blending them in to your wardrobe? Go for contrast and a little bit of color. For example, if you love rocking the rolled-up sleeves of a white button up shirt every summer, then the plaid snapper shorts will really pop when you put them on. It will also help you stand out from the crowd when everyone else keeps plaid relegated to their button ups.

Choosing a single-color pair of plaid snapper shorts is great if you already have lots of busier fabric patterns in your wardrobe tops. A simple Lime Snapper or Orange Snapper can provide a little splash of color, for example. If you really want to mute the colors a bit, you can opt for a more neutral Snapper color, like khaki. Khaki excels for raw versatility—you’ll basically never be able to find a color of top shirt that can clash with it.

Of course, you’ll sometimes you won’t even have a shirt at all to wear with your Snapper shorts, which is what summer is all about. So make sure you picture yourself wearing these shorts without some corresponding clothes to match it. Strong colors for this exclusive purpose include Garnett and Pine.
