Mid-Week Fashion Inspiration: Bermudas
Knee-length shorts never looked so chic and is taking the place of hot pants and super-short shorts. Shedding any sloppy or frumpy reputation the look may have once held, the new wave of bermuda shorts feels entirely elegant and far more feminine than ever before.
The hem’s length also makes long shorts incredibly versatile, as they basically are the new summer trousers, stretching from office, to dinners, to parties, to weekend getaways. In fact, we’ve seen them on the runway just fresh off Gucci’s Resort 2015 Collection a couple of days ago:
