Remember bermuda shorts? Perhaps at the mention of the word you imagine a more casual-looking iteration of culottes. Well, the old knee-length shorts are back, giving you an alternative for when Daisy Dukes and denim cut-offs just won't do and you find yourself in need of a little more coverage. This time though, the bermuda shorts are given a modern makeover, as seen on the Spring 2018 runways.

As demonstrated by international designers, the bermuda shorts can give off an edgy vibe to your look without compromising comfort. The trend is gaining popularity on the streets, too, with street style stars giving their own spin to it.
Here are some cool ways to wear it this 2018:
Polished with a Twist
Tired of straight-cut trousers for your office uniform? Bermudas offer a warm weather-friendly alternative. The key is to opt for coordinating patterns to effortlessly look put together. Don't forget your heels to help accentuate your calves.
As much as bermuda shorts can be spruced up, they can also be easily dressed down. Swap them with your denim cut-offs to spice up your festival outfit.
You can also put an edgy spin to an athleisure-inspired look by donning a sporty bermuda pair.
In fact, you can juxtapose your shorts with knits and sweaters and you'll find yourself sporting a whole new look altogether!
For a trick on how to easily pull off this trend here in the country, here's blogger Patricia Prieto demonstrating a laidback take you can cop. Simply pair paperbag-waisted bermuda shorts with a cropped top, cinch your waist with a buckled belt, and slip into heels to make you look leaner and longer.
