Shorts don’t always have to look casual — they can be pretty sophisticated too.
Bermuda shorts have been trending for quite some time now, but brands from Celine to Chloe are proving it’s not just a passing love affair — as they continue to send their latest interpretations down the FW20 runways.
These wide-leg culottes are not only stylish and very versatile, but also exudes an effortless sophistication that makes them totally office-appropriate. We recommend you to opt for those that hit right at the knee or below, which will look fabulous with tank tops and mules in the summer, and can be easily paired with knee-high boots and longer layers in the fall.
