Bermuda shorts have been around for a while now, but unlike capri pants, this is a style that’s more appropriate for the relentless July heat. They’re fashionable and useful, and easy to dress up or down.
Below are three faves:
1. The urban mecca of prep, J.Crew, has a stretch summerweight Bermuda ($49.50) that comes in every color you could want.
2. Gap has curvy girls covered with these polished plaid Bermudas ($20 from $39.50) that hit a balance between relaxed and tailored.
3. A classic white Bermuda, these DKNY shorts ($40) are the embodiment of a lazy Saturday afternoon.
