Suit up with sleek shapes and eye-catching prints like the Hawaii Five-0 hunk.

In the world of swimsuits, women have long had all the fun—and the options—taking their pick from countless silhouettes and prints. Meanwhile, guys have been stuck mostly with utilitarian basics: baggy, shapeless trunks or bare-it-all Speedos, most of them in a limited palette of solid, primary colors. Snooze.
Think of 2017 as the moment that all changes. This season, beach-going lads can take their pick from a variety of cool styles, including bright, geometric designs fromTom Ford and Universal Works and faded, vintage-style prints from Barney Cools and Etro. Even the solids—like Orlebar Brown's standout powder-blue pair—are fresh and updated, thanks to their streamlined, tailored cuts. Men's swimwear that's fun and flattering? Summer is looking hotter already.
