It’s obvious: Taylor Swift made us fall in love with this vintage pin-up girl look! She may have been one of the first to pull off this fun new style but you too can make it fabulous on your weekend at the beach. A high-waist bottom accentuates your small waist all while being a little flirty.

For the boys:

Board Swim Shorts


(Board Shorts: Superdry)

The oh-so popular board swim shorts still remain at the top of our men swimwear trends. Although it has a stigma of solely being appropriate for the younger generation, you shouldn’t count them out. Keeping things simple with a clear pattern or solid color, board shorts can be appropriate for all ages. Heck, if Matthew McConaughey and Hugh Jackman can wear them for a jog on the beach, so can you!

The ‘Short Shorts’

Short swim shorts are the upcoming trend popular amongst designers. Besides the fact that it shows off all that hard work in the gym, short swim shorts are virtually on every runway this year. Contrary to the misconception in the past that short shorts lack masculinity, short swim shorts that are properly tailored are all the rage. This trend allows you to go from the beach to the bar without looking like you spent the entire day surfing. It is certainly a trend to consider if you’re looking to be sophisticated and trendy laying in the sand.

The 2014 Don’ts

If anyone has watched the latest The only way is Marbs,  you’ll undoubtedly have all seen the famous Bobby Norris ”rocking” the one side.. do we call this a speedo? Let’s just say, even if you ”cannot stand the tan lines”, he should definitely be the only one wearing this one on the beach this summer. That said, if you are feeling adventurous and confident no one cant stop you, right?
