Selena Gomez Is Here to Sell You on Summer's Most Controversial Denim Trend

You've probably come across this summer's controversial denim trend invading your Instagram feed, and maybe you've even seen it on your most stylish friend (it's literally everywhere), but now that we've spotted Selena Gomez testing it out, we can officially add celebrity-approved to the list of reasons it's a keeper. The trend I'm talking about is denim Bermuda shorts, and before summer even began, we predicted they'd put an end to short shorts (not to be biased, but I think we were right). With all the stylish women out there wearing these and the cool brands selling them, it was only a matter of time until celebs took note.

But if you're still skeptical about the rise of denim Bermuda shorts, let Selena Gomez's outfit convince you on them once and for all. While on vacation in Italy, Gomez tested out the trend by wearing it alongside classic summer items like block-heel sandals and a Staud bucket bag, both of which make the shorts feel a touch more timeless and true to her personal style. Scroll down to her outfit and since I know it will sell you on the shorts trend. I also included my favorite pairs for you to shop below.
