Spring 2013 Trends: What to Wear with Bermuda Shorts (If You’re A Little, Uh, Short on Budget)

I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with shorts. When I was in college, my motto was “the shorter the better,” and whether they were cotton, jean, or track, my shorts were always several inches above my knee (and likely barely one below my butt). This look, however, has been shed as I’ve traversed in to my mid to late twenties. Probably in direct correlation with my development as an adult and  a professional, my shorts have gotten longer.

Luckily, the spring trend for shorts in 2013 is bermuda, which means that ladies of every shape, height, and weight can find a hot look that fits any style.

Bermuda Shorts Trend for Spring 2013

1. Solids: The easiest way to wear bermuda shorts is by solids. I love dark blue – it goes with everything, and it’s not black so they look more relaxed. My favorite tones are from JCrew- This length and mono-tone suits every shape and size, and they are only $49.50!

2. Jean: Considering this is the best thing to do with your old jeans, the bermuda jean short can be a free transformation or a worth-while splurge. Love these from Express Spring 2013 Trends: What to Wear with Bermuda Shorts (If Youre A Little, Uh, Short on Budget) ($59.90). Note that if you and a friend pay together, you both save 25% each.

3. Pattern: The perfect accessory to any outfit is the pattern. Pair it with a simple top and you’ve got a look that doesn’t need much else. Check these out from Nordstrom – only $46.00
