It might not be the first name that comes to mind when you think of the beach (or the pool), but J. Crew has always had a strong selection of swimwear.

Colorful but not flashy, and available in multiple fits — from mid-thigh to hitting right above the knee — these are elevated trunks that can double as out-of-water shorts during your more casual sunny day adventures.

A few favorites on J. Crew’s site, which offers both an in-house brand and curated selections:

Onia Calder

Above-the-knee board shorts that closely resemble chino shorts.

J Crew

6” Swim Trunk

J Crew Stretch Board Short

Fair Harbor
