Come Sail Away — Wearing Bermuda Shorts

Ready to board a schooner or yacht for summer fun? If so, you’re not alone. I, too, am ready for a nautical diversion.

 

Vermuda Shorts

 

 

This clothing item had many variations through history.

It’s fairly common knowledge that the British Army made Bermuda shorts mandatory in desert climates. Perhaps you didn’t know that almost 100 years ago, they became a costume de rigueur at colleges such as Smith and Vassar. By the 1950s, Bermuda shorts, knee socks and sweaters were American college staples, according to Deirdre Clemente, who wrote “How College Students Redefined American Style.”

Today, Bermuda shorts come in all styles and designs, from A-line mini skirt-like, to work-appropriate shorts that hit just above the knee.

How are you wearing your Bermuda shorts this summer? Are you wearing a preppy top, Birkenstock sandals and tote bag for that afternoon sail? Or are you slipping on a silk blouse, jacket and heels for the office?  Which styles do you love the most? Share your ideas!!

  1. I have a small background in magazine journalism but my new job requires no writing at all, except for emails. . . I would like to start doing some creative writing but I don’t know where to start, as in, what do I write about, and whether it’s actually worth bothering with or not. I’d probably be more inclined to do it if there was a competition or group I could join online or something like that. . . Does anyone do any writing or their own, if so, how did you get started? And what have you gotten out of it?.

  2. I have two computers: I call one the “good” computer — it has two monitors. The other is my “junk” computer with one screen where I download a lot of stuff to it.. . If I wanted to continue using both computers but only with the dual monitors, what would I need to buy? Is there some sort of splitter I can buy that will allow me to switch between each CPU? Where can I buy one if it does in fact exist? Will I still be able to use one mouse and keyboard?.
