Bermuda shorts aren’t acceptable in some workplaces. But, I live in Austin where it’s hovering around 200 degrees Fahrenheit this summer, so Bermudas are an option in many offices. The trick to making them work-appropriate is to wear them with other work-appropriate pieces. No tank tops, no flip flops…not even cute ones.
With my favorite, white Bermudas, found at TJMaxx last month, I chose a simple, black Mossimo T-shirt (Target), and black, wedges I scored on sale at an outlet mall several years ago (here’s a similar shoe on sale at DSW). Belting the shorts give the outfit more polish. And, because my office is refrigerated, I added a yellow cardigan from Boden for a little color. The outcome is a professional, summer look that took me from work straight to happy hour for a nice, cold, adult beverage.
