Summer 2022 jewelry trends: from belly chain to earrings with fringes, the bohemian style is back (also for the beach)
In spite of the exotic name that comes from the archipelago in the Atlantic, this garment, which we remember on Gian Burrasca and Oliver Twist, has become a must in the women’s wardrobe, loved in a minimal version by stars like Catherine Deneuve and in a red carpet mood by Julia Roberts, who chose a Gucci model for the premiere of Gaslit, the series that chronicles the Watergate scandal. High waist, wide leg and length just above the knee: these are the characteristics that make it always sought after, considering the great variety of models on the market that ranges from classic tailored cuts, to precious and fluid ones in silk, passing through those more daring studded with sequins, up to the casual-chic versions in denim.
The imperative is to focus on contrasts, as for the tomboy look by Carolina Herrera, in which there is a perfect balance of masculine and feminine thanks to a pair of men’s Bermuda shorts in light black cady, and a tailored and elegant cut and a blouse wide white reimbursed in the shorts, thus highlighting the waist. Tom Ford, on the other hand, is all about color. His sparkling purple Bermuda shorts, paired with an acid green top, full of glitter and sequins exude hope, optimism and a Studio 54 style glam. Miu Miu revisits these shorts in a college key, combining the classic masculine cut, wide and comfortable with a crop top . The result? A timeless androgynous look in shades of gray, beige and blue. Isabel Marant reminds us that, if combined with a ruffled mini top, a pair of beige Bermuda shorts with an elastic waistband, to be worn even wrinkled, with a wild air, could also become a key piece of beachwear.
Romantic, refined and precious is Valentino’s vision. His bermuda shorts are in silk, designed in two variants: one-color and with a floral print, part of a total look also made up of a micro top and a light blazer. If calf-length jeans remain a timeless classic that penalizes those who do not have height as a dowry, the cool identity of Bermuda shorts unfolds on the new fabrics and patterns.
Brunello Cucinelli in his latest collection with essential shapes and neutral tones, offers very light shorts with a sporty cut in perforated suede to which he combines a jacket worked in the same way, always beige, creating a refined styling, slightly retro, casual and at the same time female. Shirts, tops, oversized jackets, and even simple white t-shirts are just some of the possible combinations when choosing to wear Bermuda shorts.
But the shoes? Under this type of shorts you can range, it depends on the effect you want to have. If you try to slim the silhouette you have to focus on a sandal with a heel, not necessarily high, even a 5 cm is enough. Even better if you choose slingback models that uncover the heel and strain the ankle. For a formal but practical look, dancers, flat sandals, moccasins, or the comfortable and colorful Friulian. Instead, pay attention to rubber flip flops. They risk not enhancing the outfit.
