High street haul: the affordable Bermuda shorts to buy this weekend

As a bout of pleasant weather prepares to rear its head once more, we really ought to get sartorially prepared.

We may have entered lockdown wearing fluffy socks and jumpers, but warmer weather is fast approaching and although we may not be able to trawl our favourite high-street shops IRL, there’s nothing to stop us from perusing online.

If you are in the market for updating your wardrobe in time for balmier climes, then you need to know about the trend of Bermuda shorts. Seen on the SS20 runways of Bottega Veneta, Chloe and Givenchy, Bermuda shorts are a hybrid of a tailored trouser and a short, which typically stop just above the knee.

In short (ahem), if the thought of hotpants makes you want to run for the hills, then this is the trend for you.

Channel the street style stars who wear theirs with retro blouses and minimal sling-backs or rock them à la Givenchy with a co-ordinating jacket for ultimate city chic vibes.

Whichever way you choose to style out yours, searches for Bermuda shorts in the last week alone experienced a surge of 40 per cent. So, what’re you waiting for? It’s time to take summer’s cutest short trend for a spin.
