Seaside colours and tropical prints bring summer to life on our pick of board shorts. Their practical and comfortable designs make them an essential part of your holiday packing.
Keep your cool in board shorts
Board shorts are designed for active holidays whether you're brushing up your beach volleyball, enjoying resort sightseeing or hitting the surf. Riding the waves is where these longer leg shorts got their name, designed for flexible and comfortable movement in sea water. Women's board shorts make great alternatives to bikini bottoms, just mix and match colours and prints with your favourite triangle bikini for relaxed beach days. Designs with tailored cuts and pretty tropical prints are perfect partners with crop tops or vests for al fresco beach lunches or barbecue afternoons.
Board shorts - dive right into holidays
Board shorts with elasticated waists and quick drying properties are easy-wear choices both in and out of the water. Simply pull on a polo shirt and head to the nearest bar for a cooling drink. To really work the full ladies' board shorts look, go for designs in colourful prints, bringing you a hint of the tropics wherever you are. Go wild and team them with tropical print shirts or smarten them up with cool casual shirts in white or toning shades. Slip into a pair of boat shoes or flip flops and you're ready for days in the sun. Knee-length tailored board shorts are perfectly acceptable for casual resort dining partnered with printed tees or checked leisure shirts and a smart pair of loafers. No socks required!
