In our first edition of Spring/Summer 2013 Trendspotting, we're bringing you a whole new take on bermuda shorts. Traditionally regarded as as preppy cut reserved for conservative Martha's Vineyard types, bermuda shorts are getting a whole new makeover for Spring/Summer 2013, courtesy of the likes of Peter Som and Alexander Wang. Som's collaboration with denim purveyors Earnest Sewn lead to two variations on a baggy denim bermuda short, done in a floral print for a feminine twist. Printed floral bermudas were also found at Ruffian, whereas rag & bone offered up checkered baggy bermudas. For something simpler, Alexander Wang showed a whole range of textured white and black baggy bermudas, while DKNY took a classic approach, doing their version in quintessential ripped denim. Baggy bermudas are the perfect look for ultra-cool beach babes and downtown it-girls.
