Meghan Markle and Princess Diana’s Favorite Shorts

For years, summer fashion has been dominated by form-fitting short-shorts. Cute and casual, for sure, but not exactly the kind of look you can sport to the office on a sweltering day, or to a glamorous summer party. But recently, Meghan Markle stepped out in a fresh summer look borrowed straight from Princess Diana’s style playbook and reminded us all that it doesn’t have to be that way. While on her trip to NYC with Prince Harry, Meghan met up with activist Gloria Steinem wearing an effortless chic ensemble featuring a belted pair of Bermuda shorts—a look Diana herself favored on a number of occasions.

Cut longer and roomier than de rigueur short-shorts, Berumda shorts add a crisp bit of tailoring to any summer outfit, instantly upgrading a tank top or tee, while bringing a flirty touch to more buttoned-up blouses. This season’s more forgiving shape—the warm-weather version of the wide leg trousers that were everywhere last winter—is also a very literal fresh of fresh air, with a light breeziness to combat even the most vicious summer temps. Best of all, their sophisticated cool-factor means that they’re perfect for every summer occasion, from your work day to weekend play. No wonder they’ve got the royal stamp of approval.

If you’re looking to get in on the summer’s must-have tailored trend, we’ve rounded up some of the best options for every wardrobe below.
