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.
For women's fashion.
Utilizing prints is one of the best ways to add depth, intrigue, and a personal touch to your outfits. If you aren’t sure where to start, stripes and polka dots are the neutrals of the print world. Supremely easy to incorporate into any kind of ensemble—they go with almost everything, including other prints (you can never go wrong mixing polka dots with a floral! Or stripes with polka dots.). For those in need of inspiration, J Crew has some excellent examples of how to wear prints.
INFEASIBLE: Any solid color outfit that isn’t black

Guys, far and wide, time and again, solid color outfits are just a bad idea. Either they look like pajamas (see above) or they are just unsightly, especially if the entire fucking thing is something stupid like yellow or orange. Accessories like a belt or tie may make some solid-color outfits more bearable for the rest of us, but not by much. I’m telling ya, not worth your time and money to look like a ray from a rainbow.

This coupling in particular might work. Might. The shades of black aren’t identical, but a killer belt could save the day. Trend carefully.
