When I think of hot pants, I instantly think of Daisy Duke—the actual character from the Dukes of Hazzard sitcom in the 80’s. She wore her itty bitty cheek pushers seamlessly. While Daisy often strutted the same (at least it seemed like the same) thigh-high blue denim cut-offs, the comeback hot pants this season boasts a look suitable for any lady willing to push the envelope for a little fun.
Per usual, Rihanna was one of the first ladies on the scene to rock the tantalizing look this spring. The “Birthday Cake” singer tried the short shorts in a girly way, think Lucy of “I Love Lucy” turned Thelma from “Good Times” kinda way—really cute. Then the Barbadian beauty went totally left with her second hot pant flaunt. Let’s just say, the leather upper thigh-high boots with a cropped sweater made it difficult to discern exactly what Rihanna was trying to convey.
Moving forward, peep Rihanna’s ode to yesteryear hot pants look and a few other celebs that are cheek-happy about the short shorts comeback.
