As the temperatures have become a little more consistent (which bought you some time to crank out some gym time) means that we can now start shedding off the layers officially and show off what we’ve been working on during the colder months. Options for mens swimwear was either 2 styles, board short or speedo. Do I want to look like a college jock on spring break or a retired individual vacationing in Fort Laurdeale? The answer is neither! NYC-based photographer Alejandro Garcia captures some of the best and most versatile swim apparel for the summer. Bold colors and patters are always the way to when going to the beach or poolside. Added with some sort layer or accessory makes the look a little more elevated. And to set it off even more, choose palettes that play well with your skin tone. Mikael makes these pieces look phenomenal and bold in an understated and effortless way.
