After two seasons in which culottes have played a pivotal role, it appears there is a new (shorter) trend afoot: the Bermuda short. It’s still in the same vein as the culotte, but a bit shorter (although curiously, there are plenty of knee-length shorts labeled as culottes– is a culotte any pant that ends between the knees and ankles?).
Jenna Lyons, herself a diviner and instigator of trends, wore Bermuda shorts to the J. Crew Spring presentation last week, at which 12 of 29 looks featured Bermuda shorts (some of which were inspired by basketball shorts). She wore hers with high heels, but I think they’d look fabulous with sneakers or oxfords.
I feel ready to embrace this new shape, and it’s perfect for Fall (and Spring). You can shop the trend now here–
