Athleta Vital Swim ShortsAthleta keeps it simple with these Vital board shorts.

I'm not sure they're as essential as their name suggests, but they're a great example of classic design. There's nothing fancy about them, no patterns or any real embellishments. I suppose we could call the pair of small buttons at the fly decorative, but they're as much about practicality as looks.

The teal colored fabric has more personality than a neutral hue, although Athleta also offers the style in plenty of those. Personally I think we need one of the playful tones though. Such a simple style can easily blend into the background, and this vivid shade gives the design a real lift.

The Vital's versatility is most impressive at this price. Athleta claims these trunks can take us from the waves to a weekend luncheon, and it's probably not wrong. You'll need to choose your occasion and the rest of your outfit carefully, but if you style them right no one would ever guess they're board shorts!

If you can work them into your regular summer wardrobe you'll see value for your $49. If not I'd probably hesitate. While the design is classic, you'll likely find several other plain board shorts on the market for less.
