First off, when it comes to men’s swimwear for 2014, leading the pack are bright colors, bold stripes, florals, and micro-patterns. Even Details admits it! And who is at the forefront of producing such colorful pieces? A little company named Bluemint.
With the establishment of www.bluemint.com in 2011, the Bluemint brand has tried to create luxury collections of men’s swimwear and resort wear that is both comfortable and of the highest quality. Not only has Bluemint grown through its website and blog, but they have also strived to develop a presence through the use of social media like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
These Arthur Marty Orange Swim-Shorts have a saturated orange background with a multitude of white birds in flight. They come with a full elastic waistband and a tie closure with metal end caps. The pricing of these swim trunks are 77 Euros.
In looking for luxury casual wear, this brand has a few styles of men’s shorts with a tailored fit. The Gordon- The Bermuda shorts in dazzling blue comes in 100% washed cotton and has side-slit pockets, belt loops, and two back pockets. These particular shorts come in a variety of this season’s bright colors, or if you are more of a “neutral” fan, then they also have them too. At 67 Euros, they are nicely priced.
Every man also needs a selection of basic pieces in his summer wardrobe like the Edward-The Round Neck 100% cotton, lightweight jersey t-shirts. As well as this one in fiery red, there is a great selection of colors. For the price of 30 Euros each, you can have a variety of colors to get you through the entire season.
Lastly, every guy needs a great casual dress- shirt. At Bluemint Beachwear, they have a line of 100% linen, luxury resort wear shirts with a classic collar and button cuffs. Amazingly enough, the shirt can be machine washed in cold water and tumbled dry on low. Running for 50 Euros each, you can add a versatile piece to your summer closet.
When looking for swim trunks, there are a few qualities that you definitely shouldn’t skimp on. Swimwear should be comfortable, stylish, and versatile. One company takes pride in providing their customers with a line of swim shorts that are relaxed, are constructed of bright Italian fabrics that are soft to the touch and are quick drying, and are able to take you from beachside to lunch at a café is BlueMint. Each swim short from the “Arthur” line has a mid-length inseam, elastic waistband with side and back pockets, and an elasticized net lining. The differences at BM are the attention that they give to cut, material, and design, while keeping the prices reasonable at 70 Euros.
The selection of men’s swim shorts at BlueMint includes some bold designs and patterns, as well as solid colors. One example is the BlueMint Arthur in stripey green print trunk. It has incorporated the continuing trend of striped patterns with its wide vertical green and white striping. It would be complimented by a solid white t-shirt or button-down and with the swim short’s water resistant Italian fabric, you could easily get from poolside to “Happy Hour” in no time.
Next, is the BlueMint Arthur in palm print, which is a floral pattern that is grounded by a black background and neutral tones. The color combination makes it a more wearable floral pattern and sparks thoughts of California surfing or relaxing on the white Caribbean sands.
The second floral pattern swim short, BlueMint Arthur in secret print, is a little more graphic in nature and has bolder shades of reds, purples, oranges, and blues. The bright tones of this swim trunk could be enhanced with a brightly colored shirt color that is pulled from the pattern, or toned down by wearing a darker navy top.
The last one is my favorite – BlueMint- Arthur in camo print – and exemplifies the popular trend of the camouflage pattern in fashion, but modernizes it by using shades of blue, black, and white. It is a great pattern for guys who want to break away from the solids, but are not into stripes or florals.
