Tips for Stying Bermuda Shorts for Spring

Hello! Today is one of those rare days when I don't have to be out the door as soon as kids are off to school and with gray skies and a little rain on the way, I'm not complaining. Rush still takes a morning nap and Baker is miraculously playing alone in his room, so although I probably just jinxed myself, I'm going to try and get this post up! Today's outfit has a lot going on, but it's also a great mix of some of my favorite styles to wear this season. I'm partnering with Nordstrom today to share some of my favorite Spring styles and I've got a lot of similar options for you to shop at the end of the post.

I'm always a fan of a great graphic tee, and a long cardigan, but today it was fun to mix some lengths and layering by pairing them with some bermuda shorts. Add a great unique pair of shoes and I'm a fan!

Bermuda shorts are on their way back in this year, and although I'm not usually a shorts person, I'm going to give them a little bit of a go. They are a super modest alternative to short shorts, and like I said above, they also add a cool new element of length to an outfit. You may have seen the 'biker short' trend recently as well and I think slim fitting bermudas are a way to get a similar look, without the spandex! Today's pair is a little more of a relaxed fit, but I think it still works. I grabbed these (and this whole outfit) from Nordstrom and they have so many other options right now. I'd recommend ordering a bunch- in several sizes and cuts- to find the pair that flatters you the most. Nordstrom has free shipping and the easiest return process so I almost always overbuy and then return what doesn't work!

  • Go slim on the cut of the shorts. Like I said, this pair is a little wider than I like, but it doesn't create a squeezy look so that's good. (Avoid the squeezy, sausage bermuda/biker short! That goes without saying right?)
  • Stick with black. Denim bermudas are tough. The wash really changes the look so stick with a dark wash for the slim fitting look.
  • Distressed is cool, but harder to wear. The distressed, baggy bermuda is much tougher to style. It works- like with a cool graphic tee and bright Birkenstocks, but it's a little more out there.
  • Play with them. Heels and wedges look really cool with a slim fitting Bermuda short. 
  • Try pairing them with a v-neck tee, blazer and mules. 
  • Bermuda shorts also work with a great pair of causal white sneakers like these Vans.
  • A loose sweater with fitted long shorts and dressy flat sandals would also look great.
  • Try an outfit like the one I've styled today with a duster (longer) cardigan, a tee, and sandals.

Since the stripe cardigan is currently sold this one is very similar from Nordstroms.
