There are certain items that have become fashion person calling cards. Whether it be a petite Jacquemus bag or an oversized blazer, spotting them IRL immediately tells me that the person in question is clued into the key trends of the moment. We’ve already discussed the shoe trends that fall into this category and today I’m focusing your attention on one warm-weather item in particular: Bermuda shorts. While the trend was definitely deemed “out there” when it first landed on radars several seasons ago, I would definitely classify it as an updated wardrobe staple.
Instead of going for super-short shorts anymore, the fashion crowd has fully adopted longer lengths that offer a bit more coverage. The knee-grazing silhouette has reached far and wide to include everything from tailored versions to carefree, vacation-ready shorts, and yes, even Bermuda-length sweatshorts. Here, see how the shorts have become the new default and shop all of the longer-length pairs we have in our carts right now.
