Call me crazy, but I think bermuda shorts can be a classic. So many shorts nowadays show way too much skin, and for someone who wants to wear shorts but wants to keep things modest, bermuda shorts are the perfect alternative. Bermuda shorts also in my book can we dressed up a bit more and easier than regular shorts. Because of the length also, you can get away with dressing them up where you probably couldn’t for regular denim shorts.

You have a few different styles and fabric types for bermuda shorts- denim, linen, and slacks. Dressier bermuda slacks are my personal favorite, I LOVE how when paired with a blazer, you get a chic menswear-inspired look.

A few things I would consider when buying or when figuring our what to wear bermuda shorts with:

  • Avoid folding your hems. This look is a bit outdated, and you have to be REALLY careful with the length. Also, if it’s cropped in the middle part of your thighs, it can make your legs appear shorter.
  • Avoid a pair that is too distressed. Something a bit more clean and a darker wash is easier to dress up and can be a bit more verastile
  • If you cant decide on slim vs. boyfriend fit, I would recommend boyfriend fit. They can be a bit more forgiving on most body frames. They don’t have to be loosely fitted all through the full thighs, just not a skinny fit.
  • Lastly, I would opt for a high rise. You want to be cautious with a low rise shorts period because of where the length cuts off. A high-rise bermuda short will help bring the eyes up and create longer-looking legs.
