I love spending my summers in Florida for two reasons: First, it means re-gaining a much-needed tan, which has been non-existent for the entirety of winter in New York City. Second, summer means spending many afternoons in the water, either by the beach, pool or lake.

Owning a solid pair of swim trunks is essential for complimenting the locations listed above. Everyone needs at least one good-looking, durable, versatile pair that you can use on vacation, outdoor recreation, or just for the basics...swimming.

Below I've picked out 3 kinds of trunks you’ll want to consider adding to your wardrobe as you take on summer 2013. This is just to give you a taste of  what's in right now with swim wear - so even if you don't purchase these you've got a better idea of what's out there.

Here's to a productive week...Cheers!
