Bermuda shorts sure had their time in the sun back in the 2000s—remember how Blair Waldorf paired them with polo shirts and vintage Chanel purses to equal the pinnacle of prep school cool? For a while after they became passé, culottes (a.k.a. "square pants," if you will) became the fashion girl's crop of choice; but now that 2019's rolling in we're forseeing a major, major comeback. Just ask Bea Marin, who spins the summer '08 fave real cool!
Let's dissect: For starters, Bea's fabric of choice is distressed denim and not the candy-colored cotton of yore. Forget all classic-yet-dated The OC references! Subscribe instead to the street style set's current passion for oversized checked blazers, belt bags, and barrettes.
Don't forget those chunky dad kicks! Plus points if you dare to strut in extra-long white sports socks.
