I’m in the minority with my preference for tapered Bermuda shorts. In my experience most women prefer the length shorter like real shorts (mid thigh length), or stick to wearing pants cropped a few inches above the ankle. I like tapered shorts to finish “around the knee”, give or take a few inches below or above the knee cap. To my eye, this length looks balanced, proportioned, elegant and flattering. 

As the weather warms up, I am excited to wear my tapered Bermuda shorts (which I also refer to as clamdiggers). I have them in an assortment of blue denim washes, white and black. The silhouette works particularly well with a dressy soft tunic top. 

The outfit formula here speaks for itself and you can choose any colour palette. Match tapered Bermuda shorts with a soft tunic blouse, printed or solid. Swap out the Bermudas for slim fit cropped pants if that is more to your taste. Add a fairy dressy shoe, like a a wedge sandal or t-strap sandal. Dressy flats work just as well. Add in a statement handbag, eyewear and jewelry as desired. Easy, comfortable, practical and chic. 

Wear this outfit in smart-ish casual settings. Perhaps for casual Friday at work, when you’re out and about town, date night, sight seeing, or hosting a casual dinner party.
