Whether you like it or not, bermuda shorts are back and better than ever.
This once ill-fated trend of the mid-2000s, associated with the likes of Adam Sandler, has made it’s full-forced return back into fashion people’s closets. I’m not going to lie—I wasn’t into it at first. Sure, dad-core is a cool concept and jorts are at the center of low-key model-off-duty outfits, but there’s no way they actually looked cool when real people would wear them… right? Wrong.

After digging up a pair from the back of my closet and taking them for a spin with a few recreated outfits off of Pinterest and Instagram, I think I’ve joined the jorts fan-club.
My take-away: the key to an appealing bermuda shorts outfit all lies in proper styling From polished French girl basics to It girl-approved accessories, there’s a way to make denim bermuda shorts look cool again. If that isn’t something to celebrate, I don’t know what is.
