So you want bloomers. You’re not the first, and you won’t be the last. In fact, the latest to dive into discovering the 300-odd-year-old staple is French label Jacquemus, who debuted bloomer shorts as a stand-out piece in its 10th anniversary collection.

As a long-time disciple of bloomers, I’ve seen them go from a day in the sun to relegated to the dark depths of one’s closet—too dramatic to be paired with, well, anything. But they have once again returned to the light.
Thankfully, you don’t have to wait until Spring 2020 for the release of Jacquemus’ take on the trend—you can already get ahead with these excellent, and affordable, versions below.
