Though summer doesn't technically start for a few more weeks, we're throwing out the calendar and declaring it swim trunks season.

Because the weather's warm, pools are open, and your lower half has been asking about some good-looking aquatic threads.

So let's slap some handsome trunks on your legs.

Meriggi is a swimwear brand inspired by Mediterranean beach culture. Its name is derived from the Italian expression, Meriggiare, which means "to rest midday in the shade"—an activity we can all get behind.

Continuing that theme, the lineup pulls from elements synonymous with the region, including coastal landscapes, vibrant colors, warm hospitality and a certain laissez-faire attitude that prioritizes suntans and spritzes over spreadsheets.

The brand is currently sporting a tight collection of 13 modern, tailored swim trunks, ranging from solids to fun prints. Consider the dark olive and navy options for your formal pool volleyball matches, while the citron yellow pair will look dashing on a lounger. The burnt orange Paloma print—inspired by traditional Neapolitan tie design—has you covered for beach parties. And if your next nautical outing would benefit from an aperitif, don the red-and-orange Negroni print shorts, which are modeled after the classic cocktail.

Whichever route you go, the trunks are made with a lightweight Italian fabric that dries quickly, so you can go from the water to the land in a hurry. Perfect for stepping out of the Mediterranean Sea and onto your yacht. Or out of the pool and into the kitchen.

The open fridge will feel cold against your exposed legs, but damn if you don't look good fetching those drinks.
