FASHION | 5 local swim shorts finds on Instagram

halfwhiteboy - swim shorts 01

Nothing more screams summer than a trip to the beach. White sand, black sand, gray sand, pink sand, or brown sand beach, it doesn't matter. But are you ready with your OOTDs? You'll need a new set of beachwear, right? I'm thinking tropical print shirts, tank tops, some linen pieces, and of course, swim shorts.

While they're everywhere to be found, Instagram can be a source of some great finds, too. Here's but a few local brands on Instagram where you can get your next set of swim shorts.


Guppy offers a wide range of mostly stripes and tropical prints not just for men but for the ladies as well--and oh, kids! So in addition to "couple shorts," they also make "family shorts" possible.

Men's swim shorts retail for about Php 600. Right now they're offering free shipping and discounts till the end of April. You'll also find them in bazaars.

Not just swim shorts, Hovermen also offers what they call deck shorts and campus shorts--in other words, shorts you can wear elsewhere. Their shorts also come in an expansive range of both prints and solid colors. Prints are likewise mostly stripes and tropical. And oh, they also sell buttoned shirts and specs to complete your summer OOTD!

Swim shorts are priced at around Php 450 apiece plush shipping.

Shorts Market

A separate account for shorts only by Straightforward, another Instagram-based brand but which is steadily expanding with kiosks and pop-up stores, Shorts Market features both printed and plain shorts of varying lengths. In addition to the customary tropicals and stripes, they also offer photo prints of the ocean, beaches, and mountains. Heck, they even have malunggay leaves!

Prices vary from Php 550 to Php 850 depending on the style.


Emissus sells both printed and plain swim shorts through online shopping giant Zalora. Their shorts come in both men's and women's fits, so you could easily go coupling with your beach OOTDs. Their prints are mostly cute little patterns, with a few designs going full tropical.

Swim shorts retail for Php 799.

The Ilustrados

Selling buttoned shirts and casual shorts, The Ilustrados has a few swim shorts on offer, most of which are in basic, solid colors. But they have about three printed designs at the moment.

The plain swim shorts are priced at Php 499 apiece while the printed ones go for Php 549 each.

Now, are we ready for the beach yet?
