Bermuda shorts are definitely one of those fashion pieces that could easily go really, really wrong. I mean one bad purchase, and you might as well be selling Girl Scout cookies in front of Trader Joes. I mean, those little girls look really cute in their uniforms, but it's definitely tricky for adults to pull off that look. That doesn't mean that you should completely rule out the knee-length shorts. The longer hemlines can actually look stylish with the right details.
One way to avoid a fashion nightmare is to pay attention to the fabric. Skip cotton options, especially in khaki or olive colors. That way you won't have to worry about looking like a safari tour guide. Follow Bella Hadid's lead and shop for denim styles in any shade of blue. You'll look effortlessly chic and score extra fashion points for unfinished hemlines and distressed details.
And the best part about denim Bermuda shorts: They look good with an edgy graphic T-shirt or a polished blouse. So you'll get plenty of wear out of your shorts. Plus, Bermudas will keep you cool while also covering your thighs. So you can strut, dance, and bend over without showing way too much skin.
