Dealing with a transitional wardrobe can feel like a feat, especially at the end of a long, hot summer when all you want is fall knits and coats. But alas, warm summer temperatures are still lingering, putting our fall essentials on hold for longer. Face it with our simple wardrobe solution – a stylish pair of denim Bermuda shorts designed for urban girls. Also known as shorts, the once-controversial style took off this summer, backed by fashion’s favorite sister duo, Gigi and Bella Hadid. The two teamed up to test the trend for themselves, and unsurprisingly, they succeeded. While each sister still showed some serious skin (Bella in a black crop top and Gigi in a white cutout cardigan), their Bermuda shorts still provided casual coverage.
Today’s denim shorts under the influence of Hadid and others No longer the ultra-mini, cheeky shorts of yesteryear, but a full-fledged hit – above-the-knee length. While there’s a time and a place for well-worn frayed hemlines, we especially love denim Bermuda shorts that feel polished and classy—a chic option when it’s still too hot to commit to full-length jeans.
How to style these stylish shorts? From a classic white tank top to an oversized men’s blazer, they go with just about anything. The same goes for footwear – pair it with casual platform sandals or with an open-toed heel. Denim hero brands like Goldsign and Mother offer classic light-wash denim shorts that are softer and more casual for day wear, while Frame and Re/Done’s black pairings are perfect for night time. Ready-to-wear designers took notice, too, with shorts from Dries Van Noten, Khaite and Saint Laurent all fitting on the runway. With New York Fashion Week approaching, we’re expecting quite a few denim Bermuda shorts, reaffirming our view that fashion is going to hold up well into the fall.
