That time of year when you can finally get some sun on your pale thighs is nigh. PSA: the ’90s are over, and beach style has gone full circle. Think Wilt the Stilt on the boards and Connery on the screen. Our favorite swim trunks have higher inseams and louder colors, because the beach is no place to be modest.
