Accessory of the Week: Swimming trunks for every day of your holidays
Lads, don't get too excited, but it's that time of year, when we escape theses shores in search of that elusive 'sun' we've been hearing about. If you're headed off to sunnier climbs soon you'll definitely need one thing - swimming shorts!
Lounging by the pool, close to the bar and within safe distance of shade - once those criteria are fulfilled it's a successful holiday. But, before you pack your bags and head off to the airport there's a couple of things it's essential to remember to get.
The first thing is sunscreen. Let's face it, you're Irish, so you ain't going nowhere without the factor 50, boyo. Once the skin is taken care of the only other absolute essential is... swimming trunks.
With the help of the guys over at Arnotts, we've got a rundown of 7 trunks for 7 days that will save you from looking like a poolside tool. They're all from Oiler and Boiler and you can see their full collection here.
To kick off the week you can hop into the Whale Print trunks which give a nod to things aquatic and will have you looking much more graceful than a variety of beached mammal. They're available for €46 both online and instore at Arnotts.
By the time day two knocks around you've probably settled in nicely to the whole holiday mood and more swimming's on the cards. You'll also probably have found the confidence to head to the beach. What better to kit yourself out in then than the Starfish Print trunks in-store and online for €46.
As the sun dawns on day three you'll probably had a belly full of patterns... and beer for that matter. So what better way to relax the pace than with the cool Tuckernuck Shortie in Red. These bad boys will properly show off the bronzing that you've given your milk bottle legs. You can get your hands on them for €40.
Keeping in the solid colour theme, Oiler and Boiler's Tuckernuck Shortie in Purple are just as cool and also available for €40. That's Day 4 sorted.
By this stage in the holiday you're daring to dream that you may never have to return home and that this piece of paradies could be yours forever. So why not get into the proper spirit with the stripey Tuckernuck Shortie Classic Print trunks. It'd be impossible to look lame in these bad boys. You can get them online and in-store for €46.
With the last few days of the holiday approaching you're at your boldest, so why not whip on the Tuckernuck Shortie Blue Gingham trunks. Yes, it's a bold pattern, but you're in ultimate party mode, so it's a perfect match. They're available for €46.
By Day 7 there's no other option, you just have to go for it hell for leather. Time to squeeze every damn drop of enjoyment possible out of this hioliday. When it comes to trunks there's also no other option than the Tuckernuck Shortie Pink Gingham trunks. You can buy them both online and in-store for €46.
