Bermuda Shorts – The Ultimate Do’s and Don’ts

It’s hard to think about what you will be wearing this summer when the world is going through such a hard time. But it’s also very important to let your mind wander into dream scenarios to stay positive and upbeat.

After all, when it will get super-hot, all you’ll be wanting to do is to get yourself in a pair of fresh and trendy Bermuda shorts. But first, let’s go on a trip down memory lane and refresh your definition of Bermuda shorts. So what are these beauties? Consider them the “Cool Californian” vacation shorts that we used to spot quite often in the 90s. Have we rung some bells?

Fast forward to 2020, designers have used this familiar trend, turning them from vacation-worthy outerwear to more formal and more fabulous bottoms. They even went as far as pairing them with matching blazers to form some sort of formal attire, or a short-suit if you may. Creative, no?

Having said that, we’ve scoured a few tips to help you pull off this trend like a true 2020 queen.

Do go for relaxed Bermuda shorts that you can pair with a contrasting blazer and pumps for an added effect.

Don’t go a la 90s by pairing your shorts with a large tee. After all, balance is key!

If you’re into the whole business attire, do go for a short-suit that accentuates both your femininity and your professionalism.

Don’t underestimate the power of accessorizing in this matter. Throwing on a defining belt on your already-large Bermuda shorts can do wonders to your silhouette.

Do play around with the materials and fabrics – go for leather if you’re on a night out or for linen shorts if it’s too hot for you to handle the writhing sun.

Don’t forget about shoes! The more statement-worthy they are, the better!
