We'll opt for denim cutoffs in the summer, collegiate shorts in the fall, and suede hot pants (with tights!) in the winter. But, for the upcoming transition between winter and spring, Bermuda shorts are the perfect wear-with-all. Ahead, check out three insanely rad ways to style our favorite trend.
Keep It Cool For The Unknown
Sometimes the best days are the ones that involve zero planning and tons of spontaneity. But, how does one dress for a day of awesome, haphazard adventure in L.A.? Equally cool and mysterious. And, let's throw comfort in there, too. Paired with a badass camo jacket, the perfect not-too-baggy T-shirt, and our new favorite leather sandals, these bermuda shorts won't return without a really rad story to share.
