Goodbye short shorts, in the spring of 2013 the hemlines are dropping to the knee and we are loving this look. Bermuda shorts are ultra-chic, flattering and perfect if you don’t like those cheek-baring mini shorts. Typically when we talk about Bermuda shorts most women ask the question, what are Bermuda shorts exactly? In a nut shell, Bermuda shorts are shorts that are cut at the knee and sometimes a bit above it. Yes, they were a style statement from the past, but this year they are getting a refreshing and glamorous makeover. We saw Bermuda shorts all of the spring 2013 runways, designers like Peter Som, Rag & Bone and DKNY all showed some stellar Bermuda shorts in their collections.

Bermuda shorts are perfect for a spring day outing with the family, pair pastel Bermuda shorts with a simple white tanks top and nude slip on sandals. This look screams spring time, with the bright colors and casual Bermuda shorts. Believe it or not, Bermuda shorts can actually be worn to work as well. Pair tailored black Bermuda shorts with a white bow blouse and black blazer; add classic black pumps and you’re good to go. Because your outfit will have structure from the blazer and tailored shorts it won’t look overly casual for the work place.
