Knee-length shorts are a must-have in warm weather. They keep you cool and comfortable without sacrificing style. But if you’re someone who feels like it’s a little tricky trying to style modest shorts, don’t worry, you’re not alone. Check out our summer styling tips for what to wear with Bermuda shorts for women.
Loose Tops + Fitted Bottoms, and Vice Versa
The saying “opposites attract” is true, and it’s very important to remember this when styling knee-length shorts. If you’re going to wear form-fitting Bermuda shorts, then you want to wear a looser top with them. An oversized graphic tee paired with fitted denim Bermuda shorts and your favorite trainers is a carefree summer mood we all can get behind. On the other hand, structured tops, like a crisp white button-down shirt or bodysuit, can help balance out loose, boyfriend-style Bermuda shorts.
Comfortable Cotton Tops
The goal when dressing for hot temperatures is to stay cool and comfortable. A pair of Bermuda denim shorts paired with a basic, everyday crew tee is the summer get-up that gets you up and out of the house fast, while looking as cute as you feel comfortable. Adding a French tuck and a statement necklace can help give your look an effortlessly casual yet chic vibe. We’re also partial to throwing on a cotton yoke top with some modest shorts. Comfortable yet fashionable, this shirt style adds the right amount of charm for a casual day of running errands or taking a “me day” to grab lunch and get your nails done.
Even on the hottest summer days, the evenings can still be chilly. Be prepared by wearing lightweight layers. Tuck a layering tee into your modest shorts and then toss a cute kimono or classic linen blazer over your top for a pulled-together look that will have you ready for when your day date turns into a sunset picnic and outdoor movie.
No matter where your summer plans take you, we hope these fashion tips make getting dressed in your favorite pair of knee-length shorts a little easier. They’ll help you feel cool, comfortable and confident for all your fun warm-weather adventures!
