It also had the foresight to include an entire fashion spread on bermuda shorts.
Known to some as culottes’ youthful cousin (ok, maybe just me), the updated bermuda short is a great option for this summer now that everybody is officially sick of the teeny tiny denim cut-offs that, on certain ladies, look more like jean diapers than proper bottoms.
