Warm weather always gives us flashbacks to our high school days when everyone was getting called to the principal’s office for short-shorts that violated dress code. With the appearance of Bermuda shorts on the runways, all we can say is: Where was this trend when we needed it?

Of course, women should wear whatever they want, but this trend is one we’re thankful for just for the comfort factor alone. Cosmopolitan reported Bermuda shorts are one of the biggest trends for Spring 2019 with Anna Sui, Sally LaPointe and PH5 featuring the look in their collections.

Bermuda shorts hit anywhere from the mid-thigh to just past the knees. And while they’re not the most obviously sexy option, they are actually fun to style. For a laid-back look, you can simply pair your Bermuda shorts with a sheer top and a pair of sneakers. Finish the look with a crossbody belt bag.

Surprisingly, Bermuda shorts can be worn for dressier occasions by pairing them with a blazer. Extra style points for trading your shirt for a cropped top and punctuating the look with white crochet flats.

The trend is versatile enough to keep up with your everyday style or for dressy occasions. Click through for Bermuda shorts that are chic, stylish and so much more wearable than your ultra-short cutoffs.
