Model and entrepreneur Natalia Lopez
You can replace your minis with short shorts. But don’t go for the obvious shorts in distressed denim. Instead, do like charming Natalia Lopez and choose boxer shorts like a pyjama or male underwear. She paired it with a button-down shirt in the same fabric and pattern, creating a very cool ensemble. Shoes? Thong sandal heels or loafers.
Personal stylist Victoria Shevchenko
Bermuda shorts suit every woman and every body type. The mid-length shorts are timeless and ageless. Go for natural materials, like Victoria Shevchenko who is wearing linen tailored Bermuda paired with a linen top for an elegant urban outfit. Finish your summer look with on-trend Thong sandal heels.
Stylist Beatrice Gutu
The longer culotte silhouette ends on or under your knees and is an excellent option for women who want to embrace summer shorts but don’t want to show too much leg. The length is the most appropriate for your office outfit; they look great with a shirt tucked in and kitten heels or heeled sandals that elongate your legs. Additionally, you can pair them with ’70s-style clogs. And keep wearing culottes in colder seasons by combining them with tall boots and a blazer for a contemporary and elevated look.
Brand consultancy Linda Tol
Linda Tol was spotted wearing shorts from Mango. The founder of Tol Eyewear is leaving a coffee shop with Chanel flip-flops, a pristine white shirt over a black tank top. It is an easy-going way to wear Bermuda shorts in the city.
