Bermuda shorts, also known as dress shorts or walking shorts, are a type of men’s shorts that are worn as semi-casual or business casual attire. They are characterized by their longer length, which extends to around mid-thigh or just above the knee. Bermuda shorts are usually made of lightweight fabrics such as cotton, linen, or rayon and are worn in warm weather. They are often paired with short-sleeved dress shirts, polo shirts, or other types of casual tops. The shorts are named after Bermuda, a British Overseas Territory in the North Atlantic Ocean, because they were originally popularized by vacationers visiting the islands.
