It doesn’t matter if you call them dad shorts, long shorts, or bermuda shorts. However you want to spin it (and whether you like them or not), they’re comfy! Bermuda shorts happen to be “in” right now too. You know, what’s old always comes back around!

I’m surprised that I’m into them to be honest because growing up, this was pretty much the only style I was allowed to wear due to “modesty” haha. Then, when plaid bermuda shorts from Aeropostale were the big thing in middle school, I felt left out because I couldn’t afford them!

Funny enough though, now they’re part of my “mom” wardrobe (see what else is in there too). I like the longer length for running around with my kiddo and hitting up the parks. Not only that, but you can easily make them look chic too. Here’s how to wear bermuda shorts 2 ways!

2 Bermuda Shorts Outfit Ideas


For casual looks, you want to go really simple. Pair them with comfy, basic tees in jersey or cotton. Throw some cute sneakers on your feet (you want a little style after all) and finish off with some simple layered necklaces.

Throw on an oversized blazer and slingback heels and you’ll get an instantly chic go-to outfit combo every time. Promise. You can channel the old school vibes with a baguette bag and keep it classic with a simple gold necklace.
