Swimsuit season can be scary for guys. So, Clinton offers some suggestions for the fellas before they hit the beach.
The Dad Look
Instead of rocking the outdated dad look of jean shorts and socks with sandals try plaid shorts that come to the knee paired with a polo shirt. Look for a bright center with darker stripes down the sides because this will give the illusion of a slimmer figure. Finish off the outfit with a light shoe.
Ditch the Baggy Board Shorts
If you’re looking for a sporty pair of trunks get a pair that fits. Baggy is out. It makes you look bigger and stockier. Get a slimmer suit that hits a few inches below the belly button and stops above the knee. Try a fun bold print. Add a v-neck t-shirt to finish off the look and you’re ready for the beach.
Forget the Itsy, Bitsy Banana Hammock
Sometimes less is more, but not on the beach. Instead of a tiny bathing suit opt for slim mid-thigh shorts. They shouldn’t be too tight because that can add a stomach bulge. Look for bright colors. Finally, cover up your top with a well-fitting tank top.
