Choosing the best pair of boardies for the summer can be a tricky task. Will you play it cool with nautical stripes or are you looking to stand out on the sand with a statement print? To help you decide, we’ve chosen our top 7 shorts for the week and split them into types of prints.

If the Hawaiian shirt trend were to disappear and come back reincarnated as boardshorts, they’d look just like the Havana Swim Shorts by Staple Superior. The sun-bleached tropical print says, “I spend my days soaking up the rays in the comfort of a deck chair with a beer in hand.”

Covered with a bright bird print, the Scotch & Soda Medium Length Swim Shorts will be hard to miss in a sea of block-coloured boardies and nautical stripes. The print says, “I love animals as much as I love to get noticed.”

Ben Sherman nails the “I woke up like this” beach look with the Seersucker Stripe Swim Shorts. The simple pattern says, “I basically live in these shorts and I head straight from the beach to the bar, always.

With a strong nautical influence, the striped Cambridge Trunks by Academy Brand says, “I spend my summers cruising the harbour on a boat with the boys, or I at least daydream about doing this.”

Stamped with sharks and scuba divers, the action-packed print of The Rocks Push Balmoral Classic Swim Shorts says it all.

Made from 100% Recycled Nylon, the sustainably produced Evolution Trunks by Outerknown say, “I care about our waterways and it’s important that we do our best to preserve them.”

With a nondescript pattern and a longer, relaxed fit, the Rip Curl Dab 18 Boardshorts say, “I live and die by the tides – surf is life, not just in summer.”
