My Latest Acquisition From TheRealReal.com\3.1 Phillip Lim Bermuda Shorts
As they say in fashion, all trends come back around. This is why sites like TheRealReal.com are having so much success in "consigning" designer clothes for all of us style mavens who are on a budget, but still want a piece of that high-end action...
Take Bermuda shorts as an example of this very idea. These were a staple, and huge trend at one point in time, but once cropped pants showed up in almost every collection, wearing them suddenly became an absolute no-no for those who wanted to keep their look fresh. However, fast forward to now, and the Bermudas are making a huge come back. Don't believe me? Then reference the spring collections of Alexander Wang, Peter Som, Rag & Bone and DKNY, and you will see that these cropped confections are the new "must-have" piece for spring. This is why I began my search for the perfect pair at TheRealReal.com.
Well, you are looking at it. Of course this pair from Phillip Lim (a complete score!!!!) is from a few seasons back. However, thanks to the resurgence of the trend, these are now very current, and most importantly, they came with a price tag that is drastically less than what I would have payed if I had purchased a brand new pair straight off the rack, and that is a beautiful thing.
