Somethings just get better with age, like fine wine and Bermuda shorts. This classic '90s denim style is back in a big way (literally), which is particularly exciting if you're looking for some summer clothing that's a little more substantial than the frayed booty shorts that have reigned supreme for the last few summers. 

As with all jean trends, there is a huge amount of choice to suit every style: available in all washes imaginable, with neatly folded hems or completely distressed denim, high rise and low rise – you name it. It's hard to resist the return of the mom short with so many great options on offer. Thigh chafe and accidental underwear-flashing be gone, because the oxymoronically named long short is dominating the blogosphere. 

Pair yours with wrap-around heeled sandals, a silk cami and an embellished crossbody bag for a night of rooftop sangria-drinking, or really go for that throwback feel by dressing them down with a classic v-neck tee, a pair of trendy Teva flatforms and a fanny pack strewn over your shoulder to keep your Walkman in. 

Whether you're heading to the farmers' market, doing a little backyard gardening or relaxing on a terrace with a mimosa in hand, we guarantee these comfortable, stylish shorts will quickly become your summer go-to.
