You’ve stared at them quizzically for years and consider them a grandma staple, but trust us: You’re going to want a pair of Bermudas at knee arm’s length this season. Not only is the style a sweet alternative to booty shorts — rejoice! — or ankle-length skimmers — only a good choice if you want to sweat to death come June — they also work for pretty much every occasion. Worn with a crisp blazer for the office or a flirty top for a night out, the shorts look totally fresh and cool.
Despite what you may think, everyone can pull 'em off (not just the matronly set) — it doesn’t matter if you have legs for days or consider yourself to have total stumpsters. Click through to see if we can convince you, and shop a few pairs if you're feeling tempted. And, that’s the long and short of it.
