Daisy Edgar-Jones Wore the Shorts Trend I'm Ditching My Favorite Hot Pants For

Like anyone who has even a semblance of good taste, I've been obsessed with Daisy Edgar-Jones ever since I watched the entirety of Normal People (twice) in one day through a veil of thick and free-flowing tears. Her friendship with co-star and short-shorts lover Paul Mescal is the stuff of legends, and her personal style gets better and better with every press tour. Right now, she's gearing up for the world premiere of Twisters, the 2024 version of Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton's 1996 tornado thriller. Just as I suspected, the looks she's breaking out are among her best ones yet.

One day after donning a custom chocolate-brown Vivienne Westwood gown to the film's London premiere, Edgar-Jones was spotted elegantly dodging the rain after an appearance on BBC Radio 6. For the recording, the actress paired a black shirt with a cream oversize blazer and a matching pair of Bermuda shorts. On the accessory front, she wore strappy snakeskin Khaite sandals and a tiny version of Gucci's Jackie 1961 bag.

For me, Edgar-Jones's sleek shorts look was the final straw. Though I consider myself a fairly classic minimalist, I also have a bit of a wild side, which is why the out-there hot-pant trend called out to me last summer. After seeing how poised and chic Bermuda shorts can look, I'm ready to make the plunge and finally replace my Mescal-esque micro bottoms with something a bit more refined.

If you're in the same boat, scroll down to shop 14 pairs of Bermuda shorts that are just as perfect as the ones Marianne Sheridan—excuse me, Daisy Edgar-Jones—wore this week in London.
