Love them or hate them, bermuda shorts are hot for summer 2021.

These knee-length shorts, which were originally a menswear staple, rose to popularity amongst women in the 1950s. Like all trends, they disappeared for a bit and returned to fashion in the 70s, again in the 90s, and once more in the mid-noughties. Now they’re making yet another comeback, proving there’s no need to ever clear out your wardrobe as trends always make back around..

You may have already seen them popping up everywhere — from the runways of Louis Vuitton, Balmain, Chanel, and Gucci for Spring Summer 2021 to your Instagram feed (courtesy of celebrities like Sophie Turner, Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Gwyneth Paltrow, and many more).

And we know exactly why they’ve become a thing. Bermuda shorts are the latest addition to our growing list of easy-to-wear, comfortable clothing we’ve started favouring since the pandemic again and which includes baggy jeans (instead of skinnies) and loungewear (in place of most things).

They come in different fabrics, silhouettes, and colours too — dark frayed denim for a casual look and wide-leg beige culottes for smart casual. They’re an easy way to elevate an outfit and look so chic.

The high street is abundant with choices. From Zara to ASOS, there’s bound to be a pair that are just right. Here are 12 pairs we love, with tailored, denim and plus-size styles to choose from.
