Bermuda Shorts For Every Occasion

  • 1 of 15

    Much like the classic trench coat, the Bermuda short has made a seamless transition from military garb--originally it was part of the British Army’s uniform--to modern wardrobe essential. Of course, we have today’s designers to thank for the short's high-fashion makeover, as this season’s interpretations offer everything from of-the-moment prints to a range of flattering cuts. Hitting just above the knee with a roomy yet still tailored fit, Bermuda shorts are a great warm-weather alternative to wearing trousers and a clever substitute for a skirt come evening. Exuding tomboy elegance, we love this piece for a slew of occasions, so keep reading for tips on how to wear this piece all summer long.
