IBIZA's Beautiful Beaches with Vilebrequin
I took off last minute yesterday to Ibiza, for a short 2 day trip. I needed sun. The weather is getting colder and the days are grayer in Norway. You know what that means? Winter is coming, fellas. But fear not, there is always a cheap last minute Norwegian Air flight you can catch out to a sunny beach. Even though putting together an appropriately brief ensemble can be more difficult than coordinating a business suit, there are ways to inject some mens style in the surf.
Avoid unsightly bagginess at all costs. Even if you think it's not particularly mannish to wear short shorts, don't overcompensate with 1990s-inspired voluminous long shorts that go below the knees. It'll look like a swim skirt.
A few things to remember when deciding on trunks: just like a business suit, fit is what is important. You don't want muffin tops hanging from the waist, and you don't want anything dangling from the bottom. Find something that sits snug on the waistband, but doesn't constrict. Remember that traditional drawstrings help you get the right fit and make sense with holiday party-related waist-size fluctuations.
Here you have a "behind the scenes" peek. I am wearing Vilebrequin swim shorts, If you've been visiting me for a while you'll know that I love this brand, the way it fits, the fabrics and the colorful prints, I dont wear any other bathing suit brand. 1970's Saint-Tropez, produces high-quality swimwear infused with sun-soaked panache. This streamlined pair has been printed with an eye-catching hibiscus design in a palette of bold blues and pinks. I am wearing it here with a James Perse T-shirt, Rayban Sunglasses and Italy's iconic Massimo Torlasco vans slip on sneakers in natural Python.
You can also team it up with a white dress shirt for a more chic look and with Tods suede loafers or Havaianas flip flops.
