It’s not summer until you’re hanging out poolside in your swim shorts. For all the laid-back, fun-in-the-sun pool days you have planned, go for AE swim trunks and board shorts.
Our swim shorts look as good on the street as they do on the beach, making them an instant go-to when you’re searching for a versatile swimsuit. Their durable yet comfy fabrics dry quickly so you can hop out and dry off in no time, and interior mesh linings create comfort where it counts.
If longer swim shorts are your thing, classic board shorts go to great lengths to create a comfortable fit that feels good whether you’re in or out of the pool. They’re designed to dry fast, have a fly closure and drawstring waist for a smooth feel, and come in inseams from 5” to 10” that hit exactly where you want them to.
Not sure if you’re more into board shorts or swim trunks? The biggest difference between the two is that swim trunks have the interior mesh lining, and board shorts don’t.
