No trip to Goa is ever complete without a good and comfortable pair of vests and shorts. Vest and shorts are an airy combination and perfectly fit in the Goa weather and vibe. Take a striped, bright coloured t-shirt and pair it with super comfortable, slightly loose Bermuda shorts to get the ideal beach look.

The combination of vest and shorts allows ease of movement. So, whether you want to indulge in some water sports, sun basks or walk around, everything is possible with a vest and shorts. Complete the look with a hat and a smart pair of aviators, and you would be turning heads when walking on the beach.

Open Shirts Style

Irrespective of your visiting month, Goa is humid. Hence, the minimum clothes you wear, the better. An open shirt, preferably of a pastel colour, is just what you need to accentuate your style quotient and still feel most at ease.

Wear an open shirt with a striking, bright colour of cotton or linen shorts, and see that vibe you attract. Carry a minimum of three such shirts. If you have abs or a great body, pair your shirts with watersports. It is an awesome attire!

Goa is synonymous with shorts, especially Bermudas. Trousers and jeans become too sticky in the Goa weather, and nothing compares to the comfort of a pair of Bermuda shorts. These are close-fitting shorts that extend to the knees.

Bermuda shorts are available in different prints and patterns. You could choose a floral pair of shorts or a printed one and pair it with a plain colour vest. If you want to flaunt your body on the beaches in Goa, wear a Bermuda short solo and let your body soak in the sun.

Colourful printed t-shirts with shorts

Goa is full of vibrant colours, and wearing a colourful printed t-shirt with shorts can never go out of style in this place. So, make sure to pack at least two to three printed t-shirts, some with quirky prints, to ace your beachwear look.

Apart from knowing the perfect beachwear for men, you must carry the right accessories so that your trip is smooth and hassle-free.
