The Showoff Swimsuit Is 2017’s First Great Menswear Trend
admin • 10 months ago
From Justin Bieber and Ansel Elgort to Adrien Brody and Wendi Deng’s new model boyfriend, Bertold Zahoran, the style rebels who spent the holidays in tropical locales have already ushered in a new menswear trend for 2017: the showoff swimsuit. Obnoxiously loud and worn with bare feet, messy hair, and some unflappable confidence, the suit is the ultimate way to say F-you to winter—and, you know, hell yes to being on vacation.
The showoff swimsuit should fit you well (beware the Simon Cowell effect), but feel free to go with whatever length suits your body type and style. The best part of this menswear trend is that it works for every guy out there. Above-the-knee trunks have a rich-kid charm to them, but board-length styles have their own chill, surfer/stoner appeal. The important thing is that the print or color is ten times louder than anything you’d wear to the office—or at basically any other point in life. Pair the trunks with a vintage T-shirt or hoodie and canvas sneakers for cocktail hour (or, hell, dinner), and you’ll still look great.
