How to Look Stylish in Bermuda Shorts


As Singaporeans, we are so fond of going around in our shorts all year round as they keep off the heat and are one of the most versatile and convenient bottoms to put on.

While the shorter hemlines are favoured by most ladies for the past decade or more, I'm going to bring you back to the '90s as we look to bermuda shorts for this summer season. Bermuda shorts, commonly called "berms" or "bermudas", are knee-length shorts that used to be a fashion statement back in the '90s. They have been relegated to the "unwanted trends" rack and have lost their appeal over time but it seems like the bermuda shorts are having a revival this 2018 summer.

With brands like Bottega Veneta and Nina Ricci launching bermuda shorts in their collections in a variety of designs recently, it is time to step out of your comfort zone and put them on again. Fret not if you feel like a lost sheep with the longer silhouette, not knowing how to style them. Here are some tips from the supermodels and fashion influencers to help you style those berms.
