18 Aug Turning Heads #linkup- Two Ways to Wear Bermuda Shorts
Glad to have you here and to ask, Do you wear Bermuda Shorts? I received these in pink from Fabrizio Gianni and love the stretch and quality. I am going to share with you two ways to wear you bermuda shorts, and some tips to wearing them.
Now, if you like to dress a bit more dressy, but am not sure how to wear bermuda shorts in a dressy way, think of them almost as a flat front pant, or a skirt as they end where many women like the length of their skirts. I had fun creating this more Dressy Look to these Fabrizio Gianni bermuda’s that could take you out to the office or to meet with friends for drinks .
Ways to Dress up Your Bermuda Shorts:
- Wear a heel or a pointed flat to elongate the leg. ( Here I am wearing a 1.5 inch strappy heel)
- Add a dressy blouse or top that flatters you waist or area you want to accentuate.
- Add a blazer, if you feel you want to explore color blocking, try a color that works well with the solid color of your bermuda short . i.e. sea green bermuda short with a pale yellow Blazer.
- If you like a classic look, here I am wearing a dotted white secretary blouse, and a fitted white jacket. A striped jacket would add pizzazz and pull together the look as well.
- Think of accessories tassel necklaces like this one would love lovely too!

This next look is a more casual look with a floral cardigan, and fun white wedges, a pair of red wooden earrings I bought in Asheville, with a feminine shape that went perfectly with this cardigan. I am in Asheville, a casual town, so I would be inclined to wear this look here.
To Create a Casual Look
Wear a statement Tee ( yes you can over 40) with the shorts.
Try a trend like a gingham top in a bright color
Try a white tee and add a patterned scarf for a casual but still “put together” look.
A Wrap top that accents your waist area, with the flat front of the bermuda short would be flattering
Add a wedge, sandal or espradrille with a small heel or wedge in order for the legs to look longer.
This is just a small fraction of the garden near the Cottage where we are staying near Asheville. You saw the pic last week of the beautiful ‘Red Rocket” tree, and the red wooden swing.
