It’s the perfect pair of bottoms to go from home to office (or home-office, if you’re still in that WFH sitch).
After over a month of being quarantined at home, we finally have an excuse to wear all the clothes we’ve binge-shopped online, thanks to the partially lifted MCO. But if going back to wearing pants isn’t exactly what you were looking forward to, here’s a spring/summer trend to try: Bermuda shorts.
It’s shorter than your denim jeans or trousers so you can stay cool in our hot, humid weather; yet not too short that it’s inappropriate for the office. In other words, it’s the perfect pair of bottoms to go from home to office (or home-office, if you’re still in that WFH sitch).
We’ve picked out a few versatile Bermuda shorts from some of our favourite designers and 5 ways to style them from #stayhome chic to office ready. You’re welcome.
