>> Bermuda shorts are literally everywhere these days -- you can even get them from your local Abercrombie or American Eagle. Who wants to look exactly like everyone else they pass on the street? Not me, for one. It's like sailing into the Bermuda triangle -- guaranteed death.
To avoid such a frightful doom, I suggest taking the lead from a look seen on the Spring/Summer 2005 Chloe runway. Just take those shorts and roll them up a bit. Its seriously the easiest diy project you've ever undertaken. Effortless perfection, if you will. These exact Chloe cotton shorts with cummerbund are available at net-a-porter.com for $650, but are selling out quick. Satine boutique is preselling another option: Rebecca Taylor's roll up long shorts for $202. I personally am using the cropped wide-legged pants shown at the top of this post, available from anthropologie for $58. Trust me, they look just as cute.
