If you’ve ever been intimidated by a pair of bermuda shorts, you are not alone! We know that bermuda shorts appear difficult to style, but we’re here to change your mind. In fact, Bermuda shorts are back IN this year. With the perfect styling, Bermudas are incredibly flattering and can be the cherry on top for a show-stopping summer outfit.
So, what exactly are Bermuda shorts? Bermuda shorts are typically long shorts that fall just above the knee, with an inseam of around 10-12 inches. Traditionally Bermuda shorts were worn for business casual attire, but today they can be incorporated into work and street-style fashion trends.
Bermudas can have a skin-hugging, tailored fit, or can be more loose for different looks. While Bermudas have a more modest fit with a high waist and long inseam, they can still create a flattering and fashionable outfit for any occasion.
Made with versatility and comfort in mind, Bermudas look amazing on any body (from curvy to petite)! Keep reading to learn how to wear Bermuda shorts to flatter your figure this summer.
