Readers, meet my friend Whit:
Me on the left, Whit on the right. Believe it or not, I’m wearing three inch heels.
Whit emailed me recently with a question. Her situation? Regular shorts feel too short for her height but she’s tired of capris. What’s the solution?
No, not those plaid things you associate with tourists wearing cameras around their necks. These:
Why Bermuda shorts?
They cover more leg than regular shorts. Perfect for people with long legs who feel that regular shorts show too much.
Tapered Bermudas are especially flattering on tall, thin people but can be equally flattering on those of us who are almost petite.
Tapered Bermuda shorts are also a little less likely to fall into the “dowdy” camp that capris can sometimes end up in. As long as you avoid Bermudas that are too wide, too high-waisted, or look too much like the ones you pictured when I originally wrote Bermudas.
