Wearing bermuda shorts in Bermuda!

Bermuda shorts, aka dress or walking shorts have been around since World War II. The hem of these shorts hit right above or below the knee and can be cuffed or un-cuffed. The British army wore these shorts while serving in tropical British colonies, including Bermuda. They would cut their pants off at the bottom half because of the intense heat and the rest as they say is history. 

These iconic shorts bring on happy feelings of spring and summer. We remember wearing them in high school and are glad to see that this trend is back for spring 2013! It's a super easy breezy look to wear. These cool girl shorts are chic and are a far cry from the way the British army wore them. They are definitely family friendly and with the right pair, they can be figure flattering. Gone are the boy scout and preppy looking shorts, we now have an update on this classic look with an assortment of styles.

Spring 2013 runway:
R to L: Chole, Vera Wang, and DKNY
R to L: Rachel Zoe, Rag and Bone, and Peter Som

  1. uh, what a nice post!! i like bermuda shorts, but it's kind of new for me to see them at women. But i think it works perfectly!! could imagine to wear bermudas in summer too. thanks for sharing such a nice post, really inspiring!!
    wish you a great weekend,

    1. Thank you! It's weird to see that this trend used to be popular for men and now it's popular for women. You gotta love fashion right?!

  2. (*Found your blog from the Southern Blog Society website, and I am LOVING IT! Can't wait to check the archives. Great job, Ladies.)

    I actually love the look of fuller-cut Bermuda shorts on guys and more tapered ones on women, but I really don't think it's a look that I could pull off. I usually go for shorter shorts.
