There are certain trends that, no matter how beautifully styled, can feel polarizing. Bermuda shorts is one such trend. Like them or not, the elongated silhouette is back, spotted across myriad designer runway’s from Tibi and No.21 to Vanessa Seward and Off-White.
In general, longer shorts are a key look this summer whether you prefer them in the form of denim cut-offs or as a suit set. Sportier takes are staking claim, too—Rihanna showed several versions during her spring summer Fenty x Puma show from bright bike shorts to hip-slung styles in terry cloth and nylon.
Despite their wide-spread resurgence, Bermuda shorts can be difficult to style. That’s where Bella Hadid comes in. The model recently made the case for the to-the-knee length in Paris, demoing her signature 90s-baby aesthetic by wearing a nylon pair with a fitted crop tank, heels and sporty accessories (all by Prada). In head-to-toe black, the elongated-shorts-and-cropped-tank combo feels elevated and easy to wear while the heeled booties give the athletic-inspired ensemble an edgy twist. Electric add-ons are an extra pop with streetwear appeal—a look we’d totally recreate for a weekend out with friends.
